Mayor’s Citywide Community CleanUP Day - Central Fresno


Event Description:

Beautify Fresno, Fresno Metro Ministry, the Better Blackstone Association, and the Fresno Community Health Improvement Partnership are teaming up to hold a cleanup event on Saturday, August 14, as part of the Mayor’s Citywide Community CleanUP Day, a special event that invites individuals as well as non-profits, service clubs, schools, churches, businesses and individuals to serve the community by picking up litter from yards, parks, streets, alleys, riverfronts and other public areas. 


The event will clean up the Blackstone Corridor between Shields Avenue and Ashlan Avenue. Volunteers will gather in the Manchester Center parking lot at the corner of Blackstone and Shields to check in and receive instructions.


Beautify Fresno will provide paper pickers, trash bags, and gloves.


The event is open to participants of all ages and will take place between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.  All participants are invited to an outdoor celebration rally in the Manchester Center parking lot, on the corner of Blackstone and Shields, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and will include free food trucks, music and activities for children.


The first 2,000 participants to sign up will receive a free Beautify Fresno event t-shirt (S, M, L, XL, XXL) and a ticket to “Beautify Fresno Night” with the Fresno Grizzlies on Saturday, August 14.  


Beautify Fresno will continue to follow guidance from our national advisors at Keep America Beautiful, as well as all health and safety protocols from the CDC and the Fresno County Department of Public Health.
