Join neighbors and friends for a fall neighborhood clean-up of the Pearl District! Volunteers meet at Peet’s Coffee to check in, receive a free cup of coffee, get a street assignment, pick up supplies, and head out into the neighborhood to pick up litter.
After the event, volunteers turn in supplies and stay for a FREE raffle of an Electra Townie bike! The first 50 volunteers to register online receive a free snack from The Fields Bar & Grill. All supplies are provided, such as safety vests, gloves, trash pickers, brooms, trash bags, etc. Just register for the event online, show up, and be prepared to have a fun time!
Check-in starts at 8:30 AM. Teams leave at 9 AM and meet at The Fields Park at 11:30 AM. The event will happen rain or shine – be sure to dress for the weather. Minors under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Polish the Pearl is a bi-annual event organized by the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA) Livability and Safety Committee
