Annual South Side Cleanup

Is your chapter looking to get involved with the local community?  Have you considered how you can be a good neighbor?  If so, check out the Annual South Side Cleanup taking place on Saturday, April 11th from 8AM to noon. 
Lehigh University and Mayor Donchez' South Side Task Force will again hold the annual South Side Cleanup on April 11 from 8 AM to Noon. Teams of Lehigh University students and staff will join teams from the Boys' and Girls' Club, Holy Infancy School, Broughal Middle School, Donegan Elementary School, and Sands-Bethlehem Resorts employees will join the block watches and residents of south Bethlehem in the annual cleanup of the neighborhoods. In addition, the Bethlehem Ambassadors have cleaned up the business districts of south Bethlehem allowing the cleanup to cover more streets and neighborhoods to the east and west.  Volunteers are invited to stop by at Lehigh's Campus Square at Morton and New Streets for bagels, donuts, and drinks before receiving assignments. Lehigh will provide transportation to more distant assignments.
Bags and gloves will be made available for volunteers. Children should be accompanied by adults. Bethlehem Police and Lehigh University Police will be patrolling the streets to protect volunteers from careless drivers and speeders. City Streets department staff will pick up the bags left on corners in the neighborhoods.
