The annual Pick up 'n' Walk community clean up event is set to take place on Saturday, May 6th in Steinbach (Rain date is May 13).
A collaborative effort between Steinbach churches and the city, this is a great community building event that families look forward to participating in each year.
Since 2004, Steinbach churches have been organizing hundreds of volunteers every spring to help beautify the city by picking up garbage along the streets and in the ditches and parks. Pick Up 'n' Walk has become a great tradition in our city. It is recognized by many other communities as a progressive way to build pride in our city through personal action.
Anyone wanting to participate can call 431-815-9224, sign up at a local church or can just show up at the T.G. Smith Arena on May 6.
Participants are asked to meet at the arena at 9am. From there, volunteers will be dispatched in groups and supplied with maps, routes, and garbage bags. People are encouraged to wear rubber boots, gloves and to dress for the weather. A thank you lunch will be provided, free of charge, back at the arena at noon.
The city appreciates all of the event organizers and recognizes the support of participating churches who truly are the backbone of this wonderful event.
Thank you for helping to keep our beautiful city clean!
