If it looks a little extra sparkly in the Quinpool Road area, it is thanks to the hard work of our Clean Sweep teams that hit the street on Wednesday, June 3 for our 4th Annual Clean Sweep. We had seven (7) teams this year with over 40 volunteers representing businesses in the area.
These volunteers, equipped with elbow grease, took to the street with equipment generously donated by the Clean Foundation and The City of Halifax and gave Quinpool Road a good ole fashioned spring cleaning!
Our very keen and eager volunteers spent the morning hard at work in cold and damp conditions, while collecting approximately 20 bags of garbage. Once teams completed their area, they headed to Freeman’s Little New York for some hand-sanitizer and some well-deserved pizza! All headed back to work with full bellies and some coupons and prizes provided by area businesses.
Twitter was alive with tweets, retweets and favourites as people expressed their enthusiasm and pride during and following the event. Let’s continue to work together in efforts to keep Quinpool Road swept clean!
