Somerville Spring Clean Up / Comcast Cares Day
May 4, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join the City of Somerville, Groundwork Somerville and Comcast as we celebrate spring and get together with neighbors to beautify our community spaces. The annual Spring Clean Up/Comcast Cares Day is a city-wide clean up and gardening day spread across 11 different sites throughout Somerville. Come out to get our public spaces ready to be used for the spring and summer ahead!
RSVP encouraged but not required! RSVP at:
Schedule for the day:
9am-10am: Kickoff & breakfast provided by Comcast at the Boathouse
10am-12pm: Cleaning at sites around Somerville (see below)
Come for the entire time, or go straight to any of the cleanup sites to volunteer! If joining for breakfast, volunteers are responsible for their own transportation from the Boathouse to their cleanup site and back.
We are seeking as many volunteers and groups as possible to get outside, get dirty, and clean up our streets, parks, and gardens! We are also seeking site captains to welcome volunteers and supervise work at each site. If you are interested in being a site captain, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
