Downtown Cleanup 2020

We had to cancel our annual Downtown Clean-up for the first time in over 35 years. We are working hard "thinking outside the box"

So, we thought - if you are interested in helping with cleaning our downtown district with the warm weather changing. We have a solution. You and your family can schedule a time to pick up materials, clean your area and pick up a DTCU tee-shirt. We will have a bigger pizza party when we can all gather again.

From June 1st to June 5th, we are asking that families take their walk in downtown Elmira – and help us pick up the district. We are splitting the downtown into zones so volunteers can be sure to maintain proper social distancing while out and about. In addition, we are staggering material pick up times.
