Our Mission


How We're Helping

CLEAN UP – GIVE BACK .ORG  is a Non-Profit 501 (c) (3) that provides individuals, companies, clubs and other groups the opportunity to make their community better through clean-up campaigns. 

Our mission when we become fully funded includes helping those less fortunate by providing short-term work opportunities.  

We have a program for those needing court-ordered service, taken on a case by case basis.



Create You Own "Volunteer Day" Cleanup or Join an Existing Campaign!

Organize a Clean Up - Give Back .Org campaign with ten or more volunteers. We provide safety vests, trash pickup utensils, trash bags, and gloves. We co-ordinate with government officials, and post official signage during the campaign to make your Volunteer Day a great success. 

Your group can make a tremendous impact for a morning or afternoon time commitment of two - three hours.  There is no financial obligation. Your time is your donation! Email us to get started. We respond within 24 hours. We would love to see your before and after photos! See PDFs at the bottom of the page.

--Or you or your group can join in an existing campaign.  See the Volunteer Opportunities Section.
