Did you know that cigarette butts are the most littered item in America? A cigarette butt dropped to the ground may seem insignificant, but litter in general is one of the most difficult problems to control in our city, especially on entry and exit ramps leading to and from neighborhoods and city hot spot destinations.
To help make a difference the Columbus Chapter has adopted a ramp to clean up during the KickButt Columbus Trash Clean Up for our 2nd Year in a row! Last year we won 1st Place for the team that collected the most bags in all categories with our twenty Chapter members. Let's kick butt at KickButt again!
What: Join our Team as we commit to supporting KickButt Columbus, an annual spring highway ramp cleanup event to remove trash from exit and entry ramps.
Who:We are looking for 24 volunteers to join Team 14- because I said I would! Volunteers under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult! Food will be provided. Please wear something comfortable and warm.
When: Saturday, March 24, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Where: Wolfe Park, 1911 East Broad Street Columbus, OH 43209
