If you have a passion for helping the environment or a desire to build community, we could use your help! Our board meets quarterly to discuss ways to grow and fund our work in the community. We meet at the Des Plaines Elks Club quarterly for an informal dinner meeting and discussion. Minimum commitment is the quarterly board meetings, however if you are able to attend occasional community meetings such as Chamber After Hours, that is appreciated but not required. The Board's purpose is oversight to help with strategy. www.cleanupgiveback.org
Clean Up - Give Back facilitates trash cleanup campaigns that are helpful to the community and the environment. We operate a national "Flexible Service Program" that allows individuals needing service hours to work in their own community. We provide supplies, track service hours and provide completion letters.
Each campaign has 10 or more volunteers and lasts for approximately 2 hours. Individuals can organize a group and select an area to clean, and Clean Up - Give Back will provide all the supplies needed, provide official signage and coordinate with local authorities, or individuals may join an existing campaign.
Funds raised will help start Clean Up - Give Back Chapters in areas most in need.
