A Richmond non-profit organization is once again challenging residents to help keep their neighbourhood clean while celebrating Thanksgiving.

Dialogue Richmond, a non-profit group organized by three Richmond residents, started its first project and challenge, Our Clean Neighbourhood, in 2020 as a way for community members to connect online while keeping the environment clean.

The project, according to a spokesperson of Dialogue Richmond, is a way for people to show thanks to the planet, the community and neighbours with a clean space.

“Clean Neighbourhood Project is a social media challenge and prize giveaway that encourages the Richmond community to be socially responsible by picking up litter around their neighbourhood,” said Dialogue Richmond in an email.

Residents are asked to head out to their local parks and neighbourhood streets to pick up garbage and litter, and if they post a photo on social media and tag the non-profit, they will be entered into a draw to win prizes from local businesses.

This year, the event will take place from Oct. 2 to 11 and each person who participates will be entered to win prizes generously donated from local community partners and businesses.

There will also be two in-person community clean-ups this year on Oct 2 and 11.
