25th Anniversary Clean Sweep Call for Volunteers

On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon, over 100 volunteers from local businesses and organizations will divided into teams to clean the streets of Downtown Halifax for the 25th Anniversary Clean Sweep. Hosted by the Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC), teams will gather at Grand Parade before heading off to clean their assigned “cleaning zone.” DHBC is currently seeking volunteers to form teams of four to six members. Volunteers can register for the 2019 Clean Sweep by completing the registration form or by contacting Rob Jollimore at communications@downtownhalifax.ca or (902) 423-2179. The deadline for registration is May 30, 2019.

“Clean Sweep is a great event to bring the Downtown Halifax community together for a common goal – making Downtown clean and litter-free,” said Paul MacKinnon, Executive Director of DHBC. “We want to celebrate the volunteers that have been coming out every year for the past 25 years to do something positive and tangible for the area.”

Beginning mid-morning in Grand Parade, teams will meet and be given supplies as well as an assigned cleaning zone that they are to clean as much as possible within the allotted hour. After returning to Grand Parade, participating teams will be given lunch. During lunch, awards will be given out and prizes will be drawn. Prize donations are currently being accepted. To donate a draw prize, contact Rob Jollimore at communications@downtownhalifax.ca.
