The event, presented by M&T Bank, is dedicated to cleaning downtown Jamestown, outlying neighborhoods, and major roadways that lead into the city.
“We have had a tremendous response from the community this year, especially from groups in our outlying neighborhoods,” said Edwin Rodriguez, events and marketing associate for the JRC. “Residents here want to start taking back their city and neighborhoods. Jamestown is much more than what you read in the negative headlines. We’re capable of doing great things,” said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says volunteers will begin their morning at City Hall with an 8 a.m. check-in and registration. Gloves, tools, garbage bags, and other supplies are distributed by the City of Jamestown Parks Department at that time, but volunteers are encouraged to bring some of their own tools, as supplies are limited. Volunteers then disperse to their designated clean-up locations for the rest of the morning.
While most of the pre-registered volunteer have already been appointed to designated cleanup areas, Rodriguez says that any Volunteer who shows up to participate the day of the event will be assigned a location and will receive a t-shirt while supplies last.
Continental breakfast items, coffee, and water will be available at the start of the event with a thank you lunch at noon at Winter Garden Plaza on North Main Street.
