“The Litter Bug” – Where We Are Today
2018-2019 FUNDRAISER Changing the habits of the “litter bug” is a slow process. Despite volunteers’ effort, outreach, and visibility, litter remains a persistent problem in our neighborhood. Once litter is on the ground and in the gutters, it “belongs” to all of us – merchants, property owners, and the community.
Keep Dimond Clean volunteers, a work group of the Dimond Improvement Association, need your help to keep ahead of the litter.
TOTAL FUNDRAISER GOAL: $15,000 This “Help! Keep Dimond Clean” fundraiser raises funds to pay a maintenance crew for year-round 5-day a week litter removal. “Keep Dimond Clean” volunteers remove litter 2 days a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are also work days in Dimond Park on Mondays.
Community Goal: $5,000 We Need Your Help!
