From HandsOn Greater Richmond:
Saturday, September 10, 8:30 AM-12:00 PM
2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The September 11 National Day of Service is a federally-recognized initiative that calls upon the nation to pay tribute and honor those lost on 9/11 as well as the rescue and recovery workers that served in response and the military personnel who rose in defense of the nation.
Hosted by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, the Reedy Creek Coalition, and the City of Richmond, this project is a Saturday service option in conjunction with our 10th anniversary 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
Volunteers will remove paper, bottles, cans, old tires and other debris from Reedy Creek, located in southside Richmond. Litter and trash that enter our streams and rivers make those waters unsafe for people and impacts wildlife.
Dress for weather conditions and outside work – sturdy shoes and thick gloves if you have them. Gloves, trash bags and equipment will be provided. A few hip-boots and hip-waders will be available for those who will clean up deeper into the water.
