**VOLUNTEERS WANTED** Philly Spring Cleanup, Saturday 4/13 @ 9AM, Umbria & Shawmont

Hi, loyal PUL readers.

If you've never been, last year's Philly Spring Cleanup had 12,000 volunteers and over 350 projects. It's a great event, and a chance for you to help your community.

Our city's 6th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup takes place this Saturday from 9AM - 2PM. I have participated in all 5 past cleanups, and this will be my 3rd year running a project for the local Roxborough area.

The project I ran last year will be the same as this year. We will be cleaning up Umbria St & Shawmont Ave, in between Domino Ln and Eva St. Where more volunteers will be needed this year will be on Umbria St from Domino Ln to "The Curve" (where Umbria meets Shawmont). This stretch has been both a dumping ground and litter prone area for years, and we want to make it cleaner and greener for the many runners, bikers, and drivers who frequent it.

All you need to do is bring yourself! Trash bags, gloves, and tools will all be provided for the event. Please feel free to either reply to this thread, or sign up at the link I have set up on PhillySpringCleanup.com: Philly Streets Department: Projects

Your volunteer efforts are greatly appreciated, and I hope to see you there!

  1. Hi, all.

    For those of you interested in helping out tomorrow, please meet us at 9AM at the intersection of Shawmont & Umbria (on Shawmont Ave, next to where the road curves).

    We'll get started from there. Hope some of you guys can make it!
