  • 2019 World Clean Up Day - Kootenay Style

    Event Date: 21-Sep-2019

    Posted by Kimberley Chamber | on 11-Sep-2019

    JCI Kootenay in cooperation with the cities of Cranbrook and Kimberley would like to cordially invite all East Kootenay business and community members to participate in the 2019 International World Clean Up Day Event.

    This universal initiative is a social action program joining communities from around the world in one single and significant coordinated act of environmental reclamation. Aimed at combating the solid waste and marine debris crisis, World Clean Up Day successfully coordinated 157 countries in 2018 with a reported 17.8 million volunteer participates and an estimated 82,280 tons of waste collected around the world.

    JCI Kootenay in association with the World Clean Up Day Foundation is assembling a community clean up event in Cranbrook and Kimberley on Saturday September 21st 2019 from 10am to 3pm.

    This event provides a welcomed opportunity for JCI to work in partnership with local volunteers, businesses and community focused organizations in an effort to increase waste management and recycling awareness while maximizing our impact through the reduction of residential waste in our neighborhoods, roads and waterways.

    The success of any Clean Up Campaign is directly related to the involvement and dedication of its volunteers and as such community involvement is crucial. JCI Kootenay would like to extend an official VOLUNTEER CALL OUT in the Cranbrook and Kimberley area.

    Join us and others on September 21st for this fun filled and community focused event.

    For event details or information on volunteer opportunities please email Pamela Currie, JCI Kootenay, World Clean-up Day Chairperson at pamelacurrie5910@gmail.com or check out JCI Kootenay on Facebook.
