2014 had 280-ish volunteers
Taking Back The Black.
Families, friends, youth groups & strangers,
even a displaced city resident,
joined forces and worked together.
Along with very generous donations,
including a backhoe & bobcat, they managed to gather ...
19.29 Tons trash
+ 660#s Scrap Metal
+ 125 Tires
+ one 7.5' heavy equip. tire
for a Grand Total of:
21.995 TONS debris removed.
All in less than 10 hours over 2 days.
AmaZinG what happens when great people come together for great things!
We are unstoppable!!
....... for anyone keeping track --
that's almost 30 TONS in 2 years.
Thank you to everyone who helped in even the smallest way - every penny, pair of gloves or trash bag adds up and helps!
We appreciate all of you!!!
