The Sunday date was chosen to accommodate 30 University of Georgia students that are generously spending their spring break volunteering in New Orleans.
The Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This national program engages 2 million volunteers who take action in their communities to create positive change and lasting impact.
Over the past two year, NOLA Trash Mob, an all-volunteer litter-fighting group, has picked up over 9 tons of trash from New Orleans streets on weekly mobs.
Special thanks to Mid-City Market for refreshments and the University of Georgia IMPACT program for their volunteer service:
