Stash the Trash 2014
It's that time of year again! Stash the Trash is March 29th from 8:30 am- 2:00 pm.
Stash the Trash/VEISHEA Service Day is a volunteer effort that brings students and community members together to help clean up the Ames community and provide support to local agencies. The event is organized by VEISHEA, Keep Iowa State Beautiful, and Stash the Trash. Volunteers can choose to work alone, with a group of people, or with an organization.
A free lunch and free admission to Reiman Gardens will also be offered to all volunteers. Sign up here to help clean up our community!
There will also be a Eco-Fair hosted by the City of Ames on that day from 10 am- 2 pm. Consider March 29th a pre-Earth Day celebration by helping to make our community cleaner.
