On May 6th, 2017, from 8am – 12pm, the City of Rochester is hosting its yearly Clean Sweep, in which volunteers from all over Rochester work together to restore and beautify the city! At East, members of our community come together help revitalize the five major gardens around the East campus. As members of the East Community, we are all responsible for keeping our campus safe and clean. We are looking for staff members and scholars who are willing and able to volunteer. For scholars, volunteering during Clean Sweep could provide hours that count towards their Participation in Government requirements. We are also looking for faculty members who would be willing to serve as supervising team leaders for each of the five gardens.
If you are interested in volunteering and know of any scholars who might want to participate, please fill out the google form (https://goo.gl/forms/oWBPcWMWhjB7Di3i1) and register (http://www.cityofrochester.gov/cleansweep/) for the event. Volunteers will receive a free shirt and a free ticket to a Redwings game for that same day at 1:35pm. Help keep our campus clean and enjoy a ball game for your hard work!
