At our October 8th litter pick-up event, 15 volunteers showed up and spent two hours cleaning up the Eliot neighborhood. We bagged and loaded about 130 pounds of litter into Jere Fitterman’s car to be hauled to the dump.
Many thanks to all the generous volunteers, and thank you to SOLVE for providing supplies and covering the disposal costs! It was dirty work but our volunteers bonded over a shared sense of purpose. And the neighborhood gleamed for a while.
Please consider joining us for our next litter pick up event in the springtime! We need all the help we can get!
