Over 220 Volunteers Expected for 2019 South Knoxville Community Cleanup

Posted: 03/18/2019
On Saturday, March 30, 2019 Keep Knoxville Beautiful will be hosting its third annual community-wide South Knoxville Cleanup from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. The event will be kicking off from Sam Duff Park located at 4060 Chapman Highway. 

The South Knoxville Community Cleanup began back in 2017, when South Knoxville was KKB’s “community of the year”. Over 300 volunteers participated and this made it one of KKB’s largest events ever. Now we continue beautifying South Knoxville with such passion annually and this year there are over 220 volunteers!

Participating community leaders from various neighborhoods will meet at the kickoff event, pick up supplies, and then disperse into their own South Knoxville neighborhoods to start cleaning. The community groups participating include Wildlife Habitat of South Woodlawn, LMU Environmental Law, Gamma Sigma Sigma, South-Doyle High School, UTK College of Law BLSA, CrossFit Knoxville, Boy Scout Troop 36, Alliance for Young Nonprofit Professionals, Old Sevier Community Group, South Haven Neighborhood Community Group, South Doyle Neighborhood Association, and Island Home. 

After the cleanup volunteers are invited back to Sam Duff Park for lunch provided by South Coast Pizza and Sweet P’s BBQ. Alliance Brewing Company will be handing out $1 off beer tokens to volunteers of age during lunch.

This cleanup is made possible by Aslan Foundation, Three Rivers Market, TVA, First Neighborhoods Realty, CrossFit Knoxville, Alliance Brewing Company, Riverside Vet Clinic, Sweet P’s BBQ, Computer Systems Plus, SoKno Taco, Borderland Trees, and Kroger. Thank you to our generous sponsors! 

Keep Knoxville Beautiful is still taking for volunteers for the event. Individuals and groups can sign up at KeepKnoxvilleBeautiful.org/upcoming.
