Uptown Opportunity: Help with monthly clean-up effort in Uptown neighborhood starting April 3

KENOSHA ⏤ Tomorrow, the whole Kenosha community will have the opportunity to come together for a good cause: clean-up efforts in the Uptown neighborhood.

According to Uptown Kenosha Inc. Board President Krista Maurer, the business association will be collaborating with quite a few organizations to lead the neighborhood clean-up efforts over the weekend, and also in the future.

Those partners include:

  • Kenosha Community Health Clinic;
  • Building Our Future; 
  • And The Green Team Junk Removal.

To be a monthly effort

However, Saturday’s clean-up is not only a one-time deal. 

In fact, Maurer states that the partners will be taking it on consistently throughout the year, with the effort being a monthly endeavor.

“The ‘Clean-Up Task Force’ was created in a Building Our Future monthly meeting by Uptown community members who want to serve Uptown,” Uptown Kenosha Inc. explained in a release. “With collaboration, the thought was that monthly clean-ups would help local businesses with exposure, enhance community ownership and attract new investors/developers to Uptown Kenosha.  This is a free event, and all are invited.”

The Clean-Up Task Force currently consists of:

uptown; detective; observer; franklin; miskinis; vaccination; board; mandate; sponsor; kenosha; uptown observer

Meet at Armando’s Collision for clean-up tomorrow

The clean-up group and its task force/volunteers will meet at Armando’s Collision at 1718 63rd Street on Saturday at 8 a.m. to noon where organizers will also give assignments of blocks to be cleaned.  

They will also provide maps of local areas in Uptown Kenosha at the time of sign-in.  

Green Team Junk Removal has donated bags and gloves to the effort for volunteers to use.  

The removal company will also pick up all bags after the clean-up. As a result, organizers instruct volunteers to leave their full bags on the corner of each street.  

Likewise, Armando’s Collision is donating coffee and donuts to the volunteers. Kenosha Community Health Center will also be giving away care bags to the first 50 volunteers. 

“This is a collective effort from our community to our community,” UKI said in its release.

“It’s time for our Uptown Kenosha to shine,” added KTEC first grader Jeo Gaines.
