Volunteers Needed for Keep Virginia-Highland Beautiful Fall Clean Up

KVHB Fall Cleanup PhotoPassing along the following from our friends at Keep Virginia-Highland Beautiful…

Join residents and business owners in a fall cleanup of the neighborhood. This is the kick-off for our efforts to having N. Highland Avenue looking in top shape for the upcoming holiday season.

For Volunteers:

  • Meet in front of American Roadhouse restaurant (coffee and biscuits will be served). If you can’t be there at 8:30 am, join us at any point in the morning!
  • Bring work gloves, rakes, weed spray, gas powered weed whackers, small scrapers for sticker removal, etc.
  • We will provide trash bags and latex gloves
  • Can’t make it on the 18th? Go for a walk in the neighborhood any day. Take a trash bag and pick up litter as you go.
  • Parents, please consider bringing (or volunteering) your teens to help. This would make a good volunteer project for any youth group or to meet high school volunteer requirements.

For Business Owners:

  • Volunteer staff to work alongside residents
  • Hire someone to do extra clean up around your business
  • Donate supplies or refreshments for volunteers
  • Consider what you can do to improve the appearance of your storefront – perhaps it’s time for some new planters and fall pansies. See Mica at Intown Ace Hardware for guidance on what to plant
  • Don’t neglect parking areas. This is often the first thing your patrons see driving into the neighborhood.
  • Partner with nearby businesses and hire someone to do regular cleanup of your whole block, or shared parking area.
  • Make sure trash is making it all the way into the dumpster and dumpster doors/lids are kept closed.
  • Have graffiti on your building? Contact the Graffiti Task Force for help. graffiti@vahi.org
