The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Every year, thousands of volunteers come together to improve the quality of life in their community during the Great American Cleanup. From March through November, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful provides cleanup supplies and logistical support for a wide variety of cleanup and beautification projects. To get involved, you can organize your own cleanup event or you can volunteer for an existing project.
The Great American Cleanup is open to volunteers of all ages! Our role is to help each participating community find the volunteers it needs to pick up litter, plant flowers, paint buildings, clean illegal dumpsites, landscape, remove graffiti, and more!
Event dates vary, but typically they fall on Saturday mornings. Check out our events page for more details and specific dates!
