Spokane Gives Month wraps up Monday but you still have time to sign up for a volunteer project!
The City of Spokane is hosting Cleaning from the Corridor (CFTC) in the Peaceful Valley neighborhood on Saturday, April 28. Volunteer activities include; cleaning along the Spokane River, painting over graffiti and assisting in cleaning the neighborhood and neighborhood parks. Volunteers will check in at 8:30 am at the Peaceful Valley Community Center, 214 N Cedar St. Activities will begin at 9:00 am and finish at noon.
This event has three main goals, building community, cleanliness and safety. These goals directly align with the Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) motto that you don’t have to move to live in a better neighborhood!
Students will play a big part at this year’s event! Volunteers from Gonzaga University will help clean the neighborhood parks. A local Boy Scouts Troop will work with the Spokane Riverkeeper to learn about and clean the Spokane River. Spokane Arts will be working with local Spokane Public Schools students on four murals below the Maple Street Bridge. We are excited to see how these murals brighten Peaceful Valley Park!
If you are interested in volunteering for CFTC please visit VolunteerSpokane.org. All registered volunteers will receive a free shirt! Volunteers who do not register please meet us at the Peaceful Valley Peaceful Valley Community Center, 214 N. Cedar Street before 9 a.m.
