Category Archives: Annual Roseway Cleanup

Roseway Cleanup Coming Soon!

The hugely popular Roseway Clean Up will take place again this year, on Saturday, May 19, 2012, at the Rose City Nazarene Church (7016 NE Sandy Boulevard) from 9am to 3pm.  This is a great opportunity to clean out your garage and support your neighborhood at the same time.  Funds raised from this event will go toward putting on Roseway’s very first “Concert in the Park” which will take place on July 28th at Glenhaven Park…stay tuned for more on that!

In order to make this event a success, we need over 75 volunteers.  The volunteer shifts are 3 hours long, and scheduled from 8am – 11am, 10:30am -1:30pm, and 1pm – 4pm.  Shift leaders and volunteers are needed for: Yard Debris/Wood Waste; Metal; Bulky Waste; Greeters/ Cashiers, Traffic Control, Plastics, You Price It, and Rebuilding Center & Teen Challenge.  As an added Bonus, all volunteers get to bring a load to the Clean Up for free, get first pick at the “You Price It” tent, and receive complimentary refreshments.  Several volunteer spots are still needed to be filled from 8am to 4pm, particularly during the 1 p.m to 4 p.m. shift.

To volunteer, please e-mail us at rosewayvolunteer@gmail.com and let us know your top three preferences, in order, for the area and shift for which you would like to volunteer and whether you are willing to be a shift leader.  Thank you.
