Press Release: City of Jackson Announces “Let’s Go Clean Jxn” Campaign Kickoff

Posted on March 11, 2019


CLEANJXN

Let’s Go Clean JXN is part of the national Great American Cleanup

(JACKSON, Miss.) – The City of Jackson is proud to announce The Let’s Go Clean JXN campaign in conjunction with The Great American Cleanup organization. The “Spring Cleaning” event is a massive effort of dedicated citizens from various neighborhood associations, civic organizations, local businesses, colleges/universities, high schools and City of Jackson employee unifying to improve the aesthetics of our community.

“This is a great time of the year to encourage neighborhoods, communities and organizations to come together collectively to clean up our city one block at a time,” said Keyshia Sanders, Manager of Constituent Services who is leading this campaign.

The Great American Cleanup’s social theme, #cleanYOURblock, is a call-to-action to engage more volunteers and participants in public space cleanup, beautification and recycling events conducted by Keep America Beautiful® affiliates and participating organizations nationwide. Once an individual becomes a Great American Cleanup volunteer with their local Keep America Beautiful affiliate or partner, the goal is that they will be inspired to take that experience home to organize a similar, smaller-scale event in their own neighborhood, even on their own block.

The Let’s Go Clean JXN event will take place this Saturday, March 16th from  9:00 am – 2:00 pm at different sites around the City.
