E 3rd Street Clean Up| April 7th, 2018
Dayton Inspires and five University of Dayton student groups come together to perform the largest Clean Up yet!
Dayton Inspires will complete our next clean-up project April 7th. We will clean a six-block area in an East Third Street neighborhood in an attempt to break the record for the largest clean-up effort in Dayton’s history. We have set a large goal, as they expect to have 400 University of Dayton student volunteers and cleanup 30 tons of trash in three hours; making for the largest cleanup project in Dayton’s history.
This project seeks to keep forward momentum from the last clean-up in the West Dayton Madden Hills neighborhood, where 175 volunteers were able to clean 16 tons of trash out of the neighborhood on the city’s first annual Dayton Day.
Last year, Dayton Inspires recorded our most impactful year to date. We inspired and beautified the community by garnering 3,600 volunteer hours and cleaning 66 tons of trash. This effort was recently recognized by Mayor Whaley in her State of the City address.
Dayton Inspires will be partnering with Catapult Creative, a local Dayton holistic marketing agency, and three University of Dayton student groups: Gamma Epsilon Lambda, Alpha Kappa Psi and Dayton Civic Scholars
When asked about the project, the President of AKPsi stated “Alpha Kappa Psi is extremely excited to be a part of such an awesome event”. Brendan Tierney continued, “We recognize that this day will go beyond our organizational walls, even beyond the walls of UD, and this will have a profound impact on the city of Dayton. We look forward to giving back and making a lasting impact on the local community”.
