Community groups to host post-Pride neighborhood clean-ups

(This post originally appeared HERE on Gay San Diego.)

The Hillcrest Town Council (HTC) and Bankers Hill Residents Group (BHRG) are inviting everyone to take to the streets the morning of July 15, the Monday following the San Diego LGBT Pride weekend, to help clean up after the festivities. San Diego Pride will be donating $10 per volunteer hour to each neighborhood for cleanup efforts.

Brooms, trash cans and bags will be provided, and volunteers are encouraged to bring a broom to help.

The HTC will be meeting at 7 am at Park Boulevard just south of University Avenue. Volunteers that meet that morning will receive orange Hillcrest Clean T.E.A.M. shirts, and the HTC are asking volunteers to report their hours when they leave the cleanup.

BHRG volunteers received yellow BHRG shirts at their last monthly meeting for the cleanup, and additional shirts will be offered at their July 15, 6:30 pm meeting to those who participate in the cleanup. In Bankers Hill, volunteers can meet at either Thorn Street and Fifth Avenue or Ivy Street and Sixth Avenue, also at 7 am. They are asked to record their hours at the July 15 meeting.
