Please join the South Central Block Watch on Saturday May 6th from 11AM-1PM in Burroughs Park as we celebrate 21 years of South Central Hilltop Spring Cleanups in the Sullivant Avenue area of the Hilltop. The event is held in the neighborhood park behind Burroughs Elementary School (551 S. Richardson Ave), but we clean a huge area north and south of Sullivant Avenue. All Hilltop neighbors, government officials as well as non profit agencies and area businesses are invited to participate. We are in this war against trash together.
The annual spring cleanup began in 2002 with a small but mighty group of neighbors. Year by year, advocacy and awareness to the trash/blight issue grew into a movement. The Spring Cleanup is now a cherished annual tradition with more amazing people joining the cause.
Keep Columbus Beautiful will sponsor our tools and has done so every year for 21 years but please feel free to bring your trash picker and favorite pair of gloves. Donatos is sponsoring pizza but we are looking for other food and prize sponsorship as we do enjoy time together before and after hitting the streets to make a visible difference. The camaraderie you feel after cleaning together then enjoying some food is truly inspiring.
