2019 Chinatown Spring Cleanup
On April 6, 2019, PCDC hosted the 12th Annual Chinatown Spring Cleanup. The Chinatown Spring Cleanup is part of the greater Philly Spring Cleanup event, and is Chinatown’s largest annual volunteer cleanup event. About 100 volunteers came and it was a beautiful, sunny day. Volunteers swept the sidewalks, removed stickers and flyers, painted fences, and more. Whether you came in a group, in a family, or by yourself, a huge thank you to everyone for helping out! About 70 bags of trash, 7 bags of recyclable material, and 6 bags of yard waste were collected. This was truly a group effort, and we could not have done it without you all!
Volunteers were responsible for:
- Removing stickers and graffiti
- Informing the public on proper waste disposal
- Reporting pot holes, graffiti, and illegal dumping to Philly 311
Some of the groups that came out to volunteer include SASE Drexel, Hertz, Independence Blue Cross, UDAEF, and more. Special thank you to Insomnia Cookies for the delicious free cookies for our volunteers!
