528 Main St., Longmont
The LDDA held its annual Downtown Longmont Clean & Green event on May 4 in support of the city-wide Clean Up Green Up campaign which runs every April.
We made an impact with a variety of deep-cleaning and landscaping projects that go beyond the regular maintenance performed Downtown.
This year we partnered with Comcast for their Comcast Cares Day employee volunteer event to do a special landscape project in the 300 east public parking lot and art project in St. Stephen's Plaza.
A hearty breakfast, lunch and refreshments was provided for all volunteers.
Volunteers received a Comcast Cares Day t-shirt and schwag bag filled with Downtown goodies, including a Own Downtown water bottle.
Volunteers that sign up for Clean & Green need to be able to handle physical activity including bending, lifting, twisting, and standing/walking for 3 hours. If you have any questions, please call Del Rae Heiser at 303-651-8586 or email.
