Somebody's gotta clean up!
We meet every month on the third Monday at 4:00pm to pickup litter in Decatur, IL. Our pickup location varies by month, but we most always meet at The Salvation Army, then carpool to location or pick up in the neighborhood. On snow-days, we shovel sidewalks instead, since we can't see the litter!
We started in March of 2019 and have continued since. As of January 2020, we've averaged about 7 volunteers per cleanup day and about 45 minutes of work. So in ten months, we've probably organized about 52 hours of volunteer work.
We greatly appreciate our partner in this effort, The Salvation Army Shelter. Found at 229 W Main Street, Decatur IL. Available by phone at 217-429-8050.
We greatly appreciate resource provided by the City of Decatur Public Works Department, which has provided litter gitters, safety vests, gloves, and garbage bags to keep us all cleaning up safely.
