Sheldon Community Clean Up Projects

June 8 - June 26

While the Sheldon Marketing Committee was not able to hold what would have been Sheldon’s 15th ANNUAL Community Clean-Up as we have traditionally, with the help of the Sheldon Middle School students and many others – we still CAN clean up our community! To that end, the Sheldon Marketing Committee would like to encourage and invite ALL Sheldon residents, service groups, clubs and organizations to participate in an ADOPT-A-PROJECT that you and/or your group of volunteers can do at a time that works best for you!

The following are a list of “Adopt-a-Projects” that we hope, with YOUR help, can be completed in order to get Sheldon looking it’s very best as we head into summer!

If you, your business, or your club/organization would be willing to adopt a specific project, please contact Shantel Oostra at the SCDC office at 324-2813 or soostra@cityofsheldon.com  as soon as possible! We certainly encourage businesses and their employees to cleanup around their place of business as part of this effort as well!!

 Together, as a community, we CAN make this, along with many other exciting things happen, and show visitors, shoppers and friends of Sheldon that we DO take great pride in our community!Thank you for your consideration as we all work together to make a positive difference for our community!
