West Colfax Clean Up Day with Extreme Community Makeover

Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) hosts the West Colfax Clean Up Day the first Saturday of October in the neighborhood. Partnering with ECM and bringing a group to participate in the day has been one of WeCAN’s longest standing annual events. Past projects have included yard work for elderly and disabled neighbors, alley and graffiti clean-up, and helping clean up the community garden. This is a family friendly event with lunch included. Contact WeCAN’s Clean Up Day Coordinator, Irene Glazer, [email protected], to get involved in our next clean up day.
