ABOUT MANCHESTER SQUARE: Together we are building a strong community and sense of pride for this historic neighborhood.

11:30am: Meet back for closing. There will be a prize for the most litter collected!

IMPACT: Because of your help, Manchester Square will receive more benefits than you realize!

  • Health impacts: Not only does cleaning improve the aesthetics of a neighborhood, but it also reduces the risk of accidents, crime, and rodents. It also improves the overall well-being of the community and lowers stress levels.
  • Wear and tear: The pavement, drains, curbs, and other infrastructure lasts longer, which allows tax money to be spent on other exciting improvements.
  • Stormwater Runoff: All that water runs right into our ocean. With the upcoming rainy months, let's help out the whole planet.
  • Increases Property Value: In real estate, appearance is everything. With a clean neighborhood, appraisal values will go up and help the local economy
ADDITIONAL DETAILS:
  • Wear comfortable clothes you don't mind getting dirty in and closed toe shoes
  • Gloves and tools will be provided
MINORS: ​All volunteers aged 10-17 must:
  • come with this minor waiver form signed by a legal guardian.
