UPCCA is once again teaming up with community members and our city officials to clean up the streets around our beautiful city. When we as a community have a common cause, it creates a powerful way to meet new neighbors and build a greater sense of community. The event is part of The Great American Cleanup, sponsored by Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful. The Great American Cleanup represents the nation's largest annual community improvement program. 

Volunteers will work in small teams alongside city officials to clean up various litter and illegal signs around various roads in the city of Peachtree Corners. All supplies including bright safety vests, gloves, bags, large grippers and water will be provided. When neighborhoods come together around environmental initiatives, everyone WINS, by making a positive and lasting impact within our own community.
 
Adults and children 12 years old and older (accompanied by an adult) are invited and encouraged to participate. Rain date TBD. For more information or to organize your subdivisions group, please contact Matt Lombardi at mattlombardiupcca@yahoo.com
