HOBOKEN -- The city of Hoboken has invited the entire community to participate in city-wide neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, November 17 from 9 am to 4 pm. Approximately 100 Greek students from the Stevens Institute of Technology will volunteer in the effort, and all residents and businesses are also invited to take part to help clean up their block.
The city is accepting donations of cleaning supplies and tools. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own supplies, but supplies will be provided to those who do not have their own. There will be three meeting locations for volunteers:
-Mama Johnson Field (401 Jackson St)
-Church Square Park gazebo (401 Willow Ave)
-Columbus Park gazebo (Clinton St between 9th St and 10th St).
Volunteers will be dispatched to five zones to clear the streets and sidewalks of debris. In addition to the organized volunteer effort, all residents and businesses are asked to clean the sidewalks and curb areas near their properties.
