2020 Spring Cleanup (posted 1/29/2020)

Join us for a Springtime Clean-up of Independence

The IBA is organizing a clean-up of Independence focusing on Kroger Plaza. The first 25 people that sign up will get a free t-shirt and everyone will get free pizza after the clean up.

Everyone will meet at the shelter in Memorial Park at 10am on Saturday April 25th to get their trash bags and vinyl gloves. After completing the clean up we will meet back at the shelter for the pizza party. We will also be signing community service hours for any student that needs it.
