Calling All Volunteers! Sign Up to Volunteer for the 8th Annual Harrisburg Clean and Green on April 20, 2019

Join us Saturday, April 20th at 8:30 a.m. for the 5th Annual Harrisburg Clean and Green. This event is an opportunity for volunteers of all ages to get outside and help clean up the streets, sidewalks, and vacant lots in Harrisburg. We will be meeting at a new location this year, the Lamar-Milledge Elementary School on Eve Street. From there, supplies will be distributed and clean teams will be assigned.

Lunch will be provided following the event at Lamar-Milledge, but due to expected turnout, you must sign up through Eventbrite in advance to take part in the lunch. T-Shirt sizes upon registration are by request only to ensure we have a good approximation of size variation. We encourage you to sign up early so we have an accurate count!

Children 16 and under must be chaperoned. All volunteers must sign a waiver before participating.
