Show your community pride - participate in a 20-minute cleanup blitz

Monday, May 2, 2016

The Sault Ste. Marie community is invited to participate in the City's 5th Annual 20-Minute Makeover taking place Tuesday, May 10.

To take part, registered participants are required to clean up outside their home or business for at least 20 minutes. The intent of the community clean-up is to promote civic pride, encourage city beautification, and acknowledge Earth Day. Last year, over 600 people participated in the city-wide initiative.

Registered participants will receive a clean-up kit containing gloves, garbage bags, and other items - while supplies last.

Registration forms and event information is available online at saultstemarie.ca/makeover. Participants can drop off completed registration forms and pickup their clean-up kits at the Civic Centre lobby, Walmart North (Great Northern Road) courtesy desk, and the Downtown Association (496 Queen Street E.).

Prizes, including gift cards, gift baskets, and rain barrels, will be awarded for the best participant photos taken of litter clean-up and illegal graffiti removal during the event.

The event kicks off at the Civic Centre at 11 a.m., May 10.

Specials thanks to event sponsors: Walmart North; OLG; GFL; Pinchin Ltd.; and media sponsors: CTV; KiSS 100.5 and Country 104.3; Shaw TV; SooToday; The Sault Star and Sault This Week for their generous contributions.
