It's that time of year again for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival at National Mall and Memorial Parks March 17th to April 1st! We simply cannot pull off this gargantuan event without your help. Join us in the fun and excitement!
My name is James Pierce and I am working with our Community Volunteer Ambassadors to recruit volunteers for the festival. We need your help with the recycling effort. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the park to enjoy these beautiful cherry trees, a gift from Japan in 1912.
Lots of visitors equals lots of waste, much of which can be recycled. We want to make sure that happens, and we cannot do it without your help!
Volunteers will rove the busiest areas of the festival and collect recyclables using trash grabbers. Volunteers will also help remove full bags from recycling containers and replace them with empty bags. Gloves, trash grabbers, and a cool shirt will be provided. :)
We have two time slots available:
11am-3pm and 3:30 -7pm every day of the event, with a big push for the weekends.
We can certainly be flexible with times. We will have a cap of 50 people per time slot. We need all the help we can get! Groups and individuals of all ages are welcome!
Please contact me to sign up, if you have any questions or need more information.
Come make a difference and keep the park clean while helping to ensure the preservation of these living legacies to international friendship.
Thank you, friends, for all that you do. We look forward to seeing you!
Last year our friends at American Express helped us make a promotional video, if you volunteered last year look to see if you’re on it!
