Community Clean Up

Pitch In Canada.

April 22 - 30, 2017

Community Clean Up is an annual clean up event that provides an innovative fundraising opportunity to local, non-profit groups. Participants are assigned one area of Spruce Grove to clean up and in exchange, earn a $1,500 financial contribution from the City for local programs.

There are 10 available clean up spots and all assignments must be completed by an assigned date. Corresponding with national Pitch-In Week, this event is an excellent way for non-profit groups to get involved in the community, help take care of Spruce Grove and boost their fundraising efforts. 

To qualify, groups must register with the Community Service Partnership Program and submit an application form. Each group must show proof of non-profit status, be based within the Spruce Grove region and provide a “Clean Up Crew” of a least 15 people. Groups are required to provide a copy of certificate of insurance ($2 million).

Ten groups will be selected to participate. One member from each selected group is required to attend a mandatory training session at Spruce Grove’s Public Works facility, prior to the event.
