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. 

We have a program for members needing court-ordered service. We  monitor progress, provide Completion Letters, and speak to judges and probation officers as needed.
