Downing Street Cleanup

Come join us as we continue our volunteer activities with the Adopt-a-Street program. The Hub Community Service Committee has adopted a stretch of Downing Street, between 20th and 32nd Ave - just outside our front door.

Beginning at approximately 12:00pm we will gather together to organize, and go over the program’s general cleanup guidelines. And then… we’ll hit the street, and do our small, but not unimportant part in keeping our community clean.

Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to participate – the more, the merrier! With enough volunteers we should be able to give our little stretch of Downing a good cleanup in an hour or so.

Please be prepared for both the weather, and the type of work we'll be doing. Bring a good pair of gloves if you have them (ones you don't mind getting a bit dirty) - the city has provided thin latex gloves, but they'll provide minimal protection. Do not wear open-toed shoes. Also check on the weather forecast, and dress/prepare appropriately (e.g. hats, jackets, sunscreen, etc).

Finally, if you have a Hub bright yellow tshirt - please wear that as well. Thanks!

    Great job everybody! And thanks to Scott for organizing this. It felt good afterwords knowing that we had worked together, vanquished litter for another month or two, and done something positive to make the world a little bit better.

    Nice turnout - thanks to everyone who helped out. Not sure why, but out little stretch of Downing was really in need of a cleanup.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
