Kick-off spring and the annual Project Clean Stream weekend with the Alliance on Friday, March 31 with a clean-up event in the Manchester neighborhood of Richmond. We’ll gather outside of the Alliance’s office at the Manchester Pie Factory building starting at 2 pm, before splitting up to collect street litter. Our efforts will focus on the area bounded by Commerce Road, Everett Street, E 2nd Street, and Hull Street (See map below). Special thanks to Lewis Supply for donating their dumpsters for this event!
