April 18 Great Holyoke Trash Bash Text Size

On April 18, The Holyoke Youth Task Force (HYTF), the lead agency for Holyoke’s Global Youth Service Day, will host the “Great Holyoke Trash Bash,” an effort to clean up downtown Holyoke. Representatives of HYTF’s youth groups will run the event.

“Our youth are dedicated to service and to making Holyoke a better place,” said Christine Alger, HYTF Program Manager. “Like much of what we do here at HYTF, this event will combine service, learning, and fun.”

The Task Force will offer T-shirts and clean up supplies to community members who want to participate. Members of Tapestry’s harm reduction programs will help ensure needles are disposed of safely. The Trash Bash will continue with a pizza party to celebrate after the event.

To participate in the downtown clean-up, meet at the HYTF offices at 295 High Street from 11AM-12:30PM. Or participate remotely by cleaning up your part of Holyoke.
