Green Up Collinwood
On May 7th, the Collinwood community and supporters came out in full force to keep the neighborhood beautiful. Over 200 volunteers participated, collecting over 300 bags of trash. That includes over 80 bags from the shore of Lake Erie alone!
After the cleanup, we got our dance on at Collinwood Recreation Center, thanks to the folks at Radio One. The efforts of all that participated is amazing, we hope for an even bigger turnout next year.
Special thanks to partners GreenUp Cleveland, Radio One, Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Court Community Service, and Caring Cubs. Thanks also to our sponsors and donors: Baker Hostetler LLP, Overdrive Libraries, Cleveland Metroparks, Dave's Supermarkets, R&D Sausage, The Beachland Ballroom, Music Saves, Home Depot Steelyard Commons, Greater Cleveland RTA, Good Greens, Gus's Diner, Mitchell's Ice Cream, and Chili Pepper's Restaurant. Shoutouts also to the Collinwood Rec Center for serving as our headquarters, and to Councilman Polensek for securing a dumpster for the event. We hope we haven't forgotten anyone, because so many hands, each critically important, came together for this event!
