‘Clean Your Block Party’ – Design your own event!

Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful recruits volunteers, Site Captains, Area Managers and local sponsors to foster unity and strengthen community bonds through beautification and improvement efforts across Hillsborough County. For more than twenty years, this locally activated community improvement program brings the power of volunteers and sponsors together to inspire change and build sustainable, vibrant communities.

The theme – Clean Your Block Party– is a call to action to create more sustainable communities by focusing volunteer efforts on activities that impact individuals in need, aesthetic community improvements and environmental impact. Volunteers of all ages are welcome and any individual, family, school, group, place of worship, business or government entity can coordinate or participate in an average of 80 simultaneous projects around the area.

Projects may include:

  • Community gardens (butterfly, sensory, vegetable)
  • Habitat restoration
  • Invasive plant removal
  • Litter Free Events
  • Litter cleanups (waterways, roadways, shorelines, parks and underwater dives)
  • Landscape maintenance and planting (weeding, trimming, etc.)
  • Playground/park equipment restoration (painting, mulching, etc.)
  • Storm drain marking
  • Tree plantings
To help do something beautiful, contact Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful at (813) 221-8733 to lead a community location.

All volunteers must provide their own transportation.
