Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24) is putting out the call for volunteers and at the same time is providing a unique way for non-profit groups to raise money for their organization during this year’s District 24 Spring Clean-up.
“Every year, we have a wonderful response from volunteers and groups come out to help us pick up trash and clean up our streets and parks.” says Flood. “In return, we like to help those groups raise funds for their organization while they help us keep our district clean.”
The 2012 Spring Clean-up gets underway on Saturday, May 19th at 9:00am. Volunteers will start at the parking lot of Southern High School.
For any 501 C3 group in District 24, Flood is offering prizes based on how many volunteers come out and cleanup with your group.
The prizes are awarded as follows:
$950 for first place
$700 for second
$500 for third
Any district 501-C3 group that pre-registers with Councilwoman Flood’s office and brings 25 volunteers will be awarded $200.
All groups wishing to qualify for prizes must pre-register at 574-1124. All members of the group must sign-in on clean-up day to be counted toward the total.
“In years past, I have been very proud of the groups and citizens who come out to help us,” says Flood. “We are very fortunate to have dedicated people who love their community.”
Once the clean-up is over, the Councilwoman will treat all volunteers to a cook out at Southern High School.
