2015 Stash the Trash!
Online sign-up for 2015 Stash the Trash has been closed, but don't worry, you can still get involved! If you were not able to sign up, check in at Reiman Gardens between 8:30-2 on Saturday, and we will assign you to a neighborhood. If you have any questions, please contact the Volunteer Center at 515-268-5323. We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday!
Stash the Trash is still scheduled for tomorrow rain or shine! It looks like the weather will only include scattered showers during the event, and while we wish it to still be sunny and bright tomorrow, we will shoulder through the rain! In the case of severe weather, please visit the Volunteer Center's website, vcstory.org, our social media pages, and/or the local news for cancellation updates.
