It’s all about supporting kids! ❤️#DoBeautifulThings

Day 2 of #12daysofdonors : Ms. Howard of Howard's Helping Hands donated gifts of hats, gloves, scarves, kites, books, and other toys to our families this Christmas. She also coordinated giving from Keep Genesee County Beautiful including activity kits for the warmer months with 25 different things to get kids outside and moving! Our kids will be so excited to get out and play with these when the snow melts! Thank you for providing a 'helping hand' to Voices for Children families this holiday season!

Bag It Update!

Flint Mayor Sheldon A. Neeley has negotiated an extension for yard waste pickup because of recent delays in service. The city's service provider reported that it was short-staffed because its workforce was impacted by COVID-19, which caused the delays. ***The final curbside yard waste pickup for the season now will be the week of November 29-December 5, 2020, on residents’ regular trash day.***

Step Up, Pick Up starts today! This endeavor is about what you can fit in a trash bag, not about tires, appliances, mattresses, or dumping. It’s about the candy wrappers, fast food containers, empty bottles, cigarette packages, grocery store plastic bags and more; the things you see on the street, up against the fence, blowing through the neighborhood, the things that we notice, but don’t really see when we’re in a hurry.

There's still time to sign up! Nearly $5,000 in cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded to neighborhood groups based on the amount of litter and trash that’s collected and the number of steps taken. It’s a win-win for a more beautiful Flint and a healthier you! Step Up, Pick Up is from October 19-25, 2020. https://tinyurl.com/stepuppickup #DoBeautifulThings

It’s time to Step Up, Pick Up!

Communities First, Flint Neighborhoods United, and Keep Genesee County Beautiful are partnering to support Step Up, Pick Up, a friendly competition for neighborhood groups picking up litter in Flint! All you have to do is register, grab your neighborhood group, organize a group of friends or family, pick a spot, and pick up litter. Once you’re signed up, Keep Genesee County Beautiful will work with you to provide trash bags and cotton gloves. Not only will we track the amount of trash your group cleans up, we’ll also ask you to track your steps. Nearly $5,000 in cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded to neighborhood groups based on the amount of litter and trash that’s collected and the number of steps taken. It’s a win-win for a more beautiful Flint and a healthier you! Step Up, Pick Up is from October 19-25, 2020. Follow this link to sign up, https://tinyurl.com/stepuppickup.

Keep your eyes peeled for more info about another new initiative, the Litter Champion Award. This award will recognize individuals who go above and beyond by volunteering to take care of litter on a regular basis. Nominations will come from the community and winners will be acknowledged on social media, be given certificates, and will receive a $25 gift card. The nomination form will be available soon. #DoBeautifulThings

Many thanks to all the groups and people who took time out of their weekend to make a difference in Flint and Genesee County! We know that the Flint Michigan Litter Killers and Tough Cuts, LLC were tackling litter at Longway Park and in the neighborhood around there, the Rollingwood Issues (Blight, Eyesores) group was cleaning the waterfront, park, and neighborhood around Rollingwood Park, and we even saw that someone was picking up litter at Stepping Stone Falls. For those who were out there doing great things, but weren't mentioned, please connect with us. Let us know what you're up to so we can support you, too! #DoBeautifulThings

This looks like the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon; meeting new people, spending time outdoors, and helping #DoBeautifulThings! We provided trash bags, lawn and leaf bags, and gloves. We also gave the organizer of the Flint Michigan Litter Killers some neighborhood cleanup kits that he's going to distribute. Repairs and safety surfacing were recently completed at the playground, now it's time to spread the good work through the park and into the neighborhood!
