The Village of Great Neck Plaza is seeking volunteers on our Operation Downtown Clean-Up. Volunteers will be given a t-shirt, gloves, hand equipment and bag for picking up litter (cigarette butts, paper, cups, etc.) from debris that accumulates on the sidewalks and high traffic areas. All volunteers will receive the training and support required to and does not involve heavy lifting or bending. Candidates should wear comfortable shoes and must be able to walk. The Village is only one-third of a square mile and the project is limited to the downtown streets. A clean-up activity date will be scheduled when the Village has sufficient volunteers to schedule a date, usually on a Saturday or Sunday. For further information please contact Jean Celender, Former Mayor, at (516) 482-4500, Mayor's Assistant. Volunteers will be given masks (required) and will maintain social distancing requirements according to CDC guidelines for COVID-19.
