A recently established non-profit is encouraging Manassas residents to help keep the City clean.
Keep Manassas Beautiful has launched its first Great American Cleanup Challenge, according to a release.
The challenge is being run in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup.
Each year, 20,000 communities and 5 million people across the nation participate in the Great American Cleanup.
Throughout April, Keep Manassas Beautiful is hosting programs and volunteer events that focus on removing litter found on streets, renewing recreational spaces, and cleaning local waterways.
On Saturday, the non-profit held a Spring RecycleFest at Manassas Transfer Station, and a Civil War Trust Park Day at Liberia Plantation.
Three other events are planned for later this month:
Community members and businesses can also organize pick up litter events.
Keep Manassas Beautiful is asking groups who help with the cleanup to take a selfie and tag www.facebook.org/cityofmanassas – #KeepManassasBeautiful.
“City of Manassas residents really care about their City,” City of Manassas Keep Manassas Beautiful Coordinator Monica Boehringer said in a release. “The Great American Cleanup is the perfect opportunity to work together to beautify the place we live, work and play and Keep Manassas Beautiful.”
