Pitch In Canada Week - April 23 to 30, 2012
PITCH-IN CANADA WEEK
is a community clean-up and beautification campaign that benefits our community as a whole. Through the effort of many volunteers, each year, tons of litter and debris is removed from parks, ravines, neighbourhoods, streets, schools and public areas including in and around business premises. In 2009, over 4,300 projects were completed in BC municipalities representing a $4 million donation in labour made by our Pitch-In volunteers.
The City of Cranbrook’s annual Pitch-In campaign is under way for another year and runs from April 23rd – 30th! Chamber members, the Downtown Business Association and residents of Cranbrook have been very supportive of this program. In the past two years alone, participants from a variety of schools and organizations in our community collected almost 500 bags of refuse.
The 20-Minute Makeover:
As part of Cranbrook’s Pitch-In Week Campaign, this activity is designed to increase participation by encouraging business owners and citizens to take 20-minutes and spruce up the area around their business or home. Twenty minutes can make a difference! A clean and litter-free community can attract tourism and promote economic activity, as well as encourage a sense of pride amongst citizens.
