Alderman Carra’s team of Ward 9 volunteers (Karen, Lauren, Quinton and others) have done a great job of rallying volunteers and multiple organizations to assist with the clean-up here in Erlton on Tuesday and Wednesday. We thank them and the hundreds of you who have come out to assist!
But there’s still plenty to do
There are a few locations where you can help clean up Calgary on Thursday, but first:
Things to Bring
- Rubber boots
- Gloves (extras if you have any)
- Garbage bags (lots)
- Bug spray
Additionally, the team needs other resources if you can bring them/drop them off:
- 5-gallon pails/bins
- Food / Coffee / Water
- Shovels / Tools (not power tools)
