Green & Clean

Spring is coming and it's time to gear up for the 9th annual Green & Clean presented by Pritt Entertainment Group.

This year we have made some exciting changes to the event. Green & Clean will start on Earth Day, April 22 and run Fridays through Friday, May 20

Green & Clean projects focus on making a vibrant impact, going beyond the regular services of the Downtown Akron Partnership's Clean Team. The goal of the event is to engage the community in making our downtown “vibrant and valuable.”  During Green & Clean business employees, students and community members form teams and do projects around their own downtown property or are assigned tasks within the district.

All volunteers will receive a Green & Clean t-shirt, as well as lunch at the Volunteer Picnic*. The picnic will be held at Lock 3 on Friday, May 20 from 12-1:30 p.m.

*Please note, if you are volunteering April 22, 29 or May 6 you will not receive lunch before or after your shift. All volunteers will receive lunch at the picnic on May 20.

Volunteers can choose from the following shifts:

Friday, April 22: 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.
Friday, April 22: 1:30 p.m.- 4:30 p.m.
Friday, April 29: 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.
