Overview

Project Blitz is Brightside St. Louis's annual campaign to clean up city neighborhoods. Clean-up effort generally held in April and May of each year.

Changes for 2014:

Project Blitz is changed this year. There will not be any clean-up dates designated by Brightside. Block units, neighborhood organizations and other community groups will be able to designate their own date for their neighborhood clean-up.

The purpose is to get back to the original intention of Blitz and that is for people to get together to clean up the alleys, streets and vacant lots in their neighborhood. 

Preparation

Volunteering to be a Block Captain or find out if your block already has one. Planning ahead helps is recruiting volunteers and securing cleanup materials.
