Streets, Walkways, Education & Enforcement Program
Mission Statement – We would like to create a cleaner and healthier environment in which to live, play, and work, an environment we can be proud of. We will also provide workshops to educate the community about litter prevention. Using the Keep America Beautiful (KAB) litter prevention and waste reduction programs, along with the Jersey City Incinerator Authority and the other Jersey City agencies, we would like to propose a SWEEP Up Day, in hopes of cleaning up the Lafayette/ Morris Canal Neighborhood. KAB is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community environments and the program is FREE!
Although our primary goal will be to teach our residents and our children how to improve the community by cleaning and spreading awareness about anti-litter, we will also instill a belief in maintaining and beautifying the grounds. We are confident that this program will deliver therapeutic outcomes that will foster nurturing relationships and promote teamwork, pride and anti-pollution.
We are always looking for volunteers to participate and/or to sign up as a block captain. To sign up or volunteer, please provide your information in the comment space provided below, or email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
