On Saturday 11/06/2021, a group of University of Wisconsin Whitewater students joined Downtown Whitewater, Inc for a Greek Day of Service and fall downtown cleanup. Students were tasked with collecting refuse, pulling weeds from sidewalks, cleaning up fallen leaves, sweeping sidewalks, curbs, and gutters in an effort to keep our stormwater system free of trash and leaves. The cleanup of leaves especially helps to curtail one of the major sources of phosphorous entering storm water systems.
As a volunteer-led organization, Downtown Whitewater, Inc hosts a number of downtown cleanups throughout the year including several collaborations with UWW. We are thankful for our student and non student volunteers who are dedicated to making our downtown a vibrant community center. Community members wishing to become more involved with our volunteer opportunities are always welcome to reach out to us via email at email@example.com or call our office at (262)473-2200.
