Spring is here and the City of Oshawa is calling on volunteers to help clean-up Oshawa’s local parks and green spaces. Community Clean-up Week, formerly known as PITCH-IN Week, takes place April 21-27.
All groups are invited -- large or small -- to help clean up local parks, green spaces, trails and schoolyards. The Social Committee has registered an Oshawa Public Libraries/CUPE Local 960 Group and as such we will receive free waste bags and gloves. Upon completion of the clean-up, our registered groups will receive a Certificate of Recognition to acknowledge our contribution to the community.
Our designated Clean Up day is Monday, April 22nd for the two hours over lunch time (12 – 2). We are asking staff to signup for 10 or 20 minutes to take part in our tag-team approach during the two hour period to clean up part of Memorial Park. All those who sign up also get to wear jeans on Monday as a special Thank You! There is a sign up file in the shared drive Shared/General/SocialCommittee/Earth Day . Please sign up by end of day Thursday so we know how many bags and gloves we need for Monday.
Members of the Social Committee will be on-site for the two hour period, so you will never be alone! Commit as much time as you are willing during your lunch hour to help make a difference for our environment.
If you have any questions, please contact Laura McEwan, Val Day or Tiffany Balducci.
