Campus Clean Up 2016

What do you do at 11 AM on a Sunday?  Volunteers helped to clean up our campus on TWO Sundays this quarter.

On February 7, the Campus Cleanup Committee had its first 2016 Clean-up Hour at Colleges 9/10 and on February 21, students cleaned up College 8 and Oakes. Both were successful events during which students collected more than six buckets of trash at each event! With 19 people cleaning up at 9/10 and 12 people at 8/Oakes, the clean up crew was able to accomplish a lot in only an hour of time. It doesn't take much to make a big difference when picking up litter around campus.

At the end of the hour vonunteers enjoyed fresh farmers market oranges and Costco churros provided by the Campus Cleanup Committee. These events are a lead up to the larger Campus-Wide Cleanup event happening on May 1st. They will be looking for volunteers and facilitators for cleanup zones in the coming weeks. If you want to get involved with the May cleanup, email Bella at bmontez [at] ucsc [dot] edu.
