Community and civic associations, schools and youth groups, families and friends, business employees, sports teams, church groups and others can organize their members and participate in the Great American Clean-up for Curwensville.
The Great American Clean-up of Pennsylvania is sponsored by Keep America Beautiful, the country’s largest community improvement program.

Participants are to bring garden tools to help plant flowers in the memorial planters. Safety vests, work gloves and trash bags will be provided by PennDOT.
Participants are also to bring shovels, rakes, brooms, wheelbarrows or muck buckets. Limited shovels and brooms will also be provided by organizers at the clean-up event.
Participants are asked to meet at Northwest Savings Bank in the parking lot at 9 a.m.
