Support the 20th Annual Clean Your Streams Day

July 6This year marks the 20th anniversary of Clean Your Streams Day!  We look forward to celebrating 20 years of successfully removing debris from streams, riverbanks, and watersheds in Toledo and surrounding areas. On the morning of September 17th, join hundreds of other volunteers in removing tons of trash from our local riverbanks. Since 1997, the number of volunteers on Clean Your Streams Day has grown each year and the support for this event has gotten stronger and stronger. Last year, 971 volunteers removed over 13,000 pounds of trash in the 19th Annual Clean Your Streams Day. The more friends, family members, and colleagues you encourage to join us for this special day, the bigger impact we can have on our local rivers. To commemorate the very special 20th anniversary of Clean Your Streams Day, we have set a goal to fundraise $2,000 of individual donations and $20,000 in corporate sponsorships by August 26th – we’re halfway there but need your help to make these dreams a reality! Your donation will support the future of this program and the legacy of positive community action towards protecting our waterways.

It takes thousands of dollars and countless hours of work to organize Clean Your Streams Day and we are so thankful for those who have supported us in the past. Specifically, we are looking for sponsors, door prizes, silent auction items, and monetary donations to make this event possible.  If you want to help make the 20th year of Clean Your Streams a success, you can donate on our website or by contacting us directly. From now until September 17th, help us make this year the best Clean Your Streams Day yet by saving the date, soliciting other volunteers or sponsors in your family network, workplace, or organizations, and spreading the news about how awesome Clean Your Streams Day is with everyone! Stay tuned for more details on our website, including the opening of registration in early August.
