Annual cleanup day will be Sunday
The Canby Livability Coalition will hold its 11th Annual Cleanup Day from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Volunteers will be assigned projects to help clean up the downtown streets and park areas, as well as fix up the Canby welcome sign.
Secretary of the Livability Coalition Sheila Tice encouraged people to come volunteer and get things beautified for our summer visitors.
While the cleanup day usually goes off well and completes all its projects, there is always room for more volunteers.
It just gives people a good feeling to know theyre helping the city, Tice said.
Some of the jobs dont take much time, she added, and it can be an event for the whole family.
You can grab your family and bring your kids on some of the projects, Tice said. It kind of helps the kids learn about giving back to your community.
The cleanup day is important because studies have shown that people dont like going into areas of the city that dont look like they have been kept up well, have trash, graffiti or broken sidewalks, Tice said.
The Coalition has tools to lend out to their volunteers.
