We will seek out locations most in need if your group does not have a place in mind. We provide safety vests, trash pickup utensils, trash bags, gloves and water. We co-ordinate with government officials and post official signage during the campaign to make your Volunteer Day a great success. We ensure proper removal of trash.
Corporate and group donations directly fund our general operating expenses and our mission.
