GENERAL INFO: Volunteer a few hours of your time with friends and neighbors to help make downtown shine! Volunteers will sweep sidewalks, mulch tree wells, pick up trash and plant flowers. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.
WHAT TO BRING: Bring your own broom, dustpan, work gloves, light gardening tools (trowel, small shovel, etc.), water bottle and face mask — trash bags will be provided.
NEW THIS YEAR: Volunteers should report directly to their assigned clean-up locations at 8:30AM. Your clean-up location will be assigned to you in advance by the event organizers. There will not be a centralized volunteer check-in at the Partnership office. Event organizers will be circulating around downtown to assist volunteers.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: All volunteers must register in advance this year. The deadline to register is 10AM on Monday, April 19. Please register by this time so that you can be assigned a clean-up location in advance.
FACE MASKS REQUIRED: Please note that face masks are required for all volunteers.
ADDITIONAL EVENT CHANGES: In an effort to reduce volunteer gatherings, the complimentary volunteer lunch and breakfast are cancelled for 2021. Instead, we encourage any hungry volunteers to show their support for our local businesses by purchasing snacks and meals from a downtown restaurant or shop.
GROUP REGISTRATION: Bring a Broom Saturday is a great volunteer opportunity for companies, sports teams, social clubs and civic groups. If you’re volunteering as part of a group, choose the “group member” option at registration and search for your team name. If you’re a group leader and need to set up a group sign-up page for your team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
