“Mask Up to Clean Up!” is a call to enlist residents, during this time of COVID, to voluntarily pitch in to do clean-ups where they live that create a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment.

With COVID-19 safety guidelines still in place, community members can do clean-ups with immediate family, in groups of five or fewer, or do individual clean-ups of their neighborhood as part of an initiative to have all residents join efforts toward maintaining property, beginning with where they live.
