Join us for our the 8th Annual Chinatown International District Spring Clean-up!
Hosted by our Community Action Partnership (CAP) public safety program, our neighborhood clean-up is the largest in the city! Last year over 400 volunteers joined us to celebrate the Chinatown International District and make the neighborhood safe and welcoming for residents, workers, and visitors.
Clean-up activities include picking up litter from the neighborhood's sidewalks and alleyways, removing graffiti, and re-mulching our green spaces.
The Chinatown International District is known for its bustling streets of activity where shoppers, families, and visitors stroll among family-owned markets, restaurants, and historical landmarks. CAP helps deter neighborhood crime and maintain a friendly pedestrian atmosphere by keeping buildings and streets clean. We invite you to show your support and help maintain the community we love, making it a safe and friendly place for all!
Clean-up volunteers will receive a small breakfast and lunch as a sign of our appreciation.
Thank you to our event sponsors!
