NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Led by New Rochelle City Councilman Jared Rice, several local organizations are inviting the community to team up and help revitalize the Lincoln Avenue Corridor.
New Rochelle’s Community Enrichment Zone (CEZ) is inviting volunteers to join them from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. - rain or shine - for a “Community Clean-up Day,” where they will begin beautification efforts along the Lincoln Avenue Corridor and surrounding streets between North and Clinton Avenues.
Community members older than 8-years-old can join the Clean-up Day by signing up through the recently launched Volunteer New Rochelle! organization. Volunteers will be grouped into teams and assigned a certain sector to begin cleaning. Children under 14-years-old must be supervised. Refreshments will be served following the cleanup.
“Volunteerism helps to better connect us with our neighbors, while addressing real community needs — and almost all of us have the capacity to contribute in some way to the common good,” Mayor Noam Bramson said when announcing the establishment of Volunteer! New Rochelle.
According to Rice, CEZ New Rochelle Clean Up Day was created to encourage a green environment, while building relationships that establish “a sense of pride in where you reside.”
“Lincoln Avenue is in the heart of New Rochelle, and thousands travel on it every week,” he added. “This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in a community service project and demonstrate your concern for both our city and the environment.”
