MANSFIELD, OH - Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker has announced that the City of Mansfield and Downtown Mansfield Inc. have decleared May 21st, 2019 as Operation Sweep. 

Operation Sweep is in support of Earth Stewardship Month and the Great American Clean up. 

"Downtown Mansfield, Inc. is excited to continue our partnership with the City of Mansfield in our joint efforts to beautify and clean our community." Jennifer Gerberick Kime, CEO of Downtown Mansfield Inc, stated. "It is through these collaborative partnerships and dedicated volunteers that we are able to continue the beautification of Mansfield."

On Tuesday May 21st of this year, volunteers, local business people, and organizations can join the City of Mansfield between 4:45 PM and 5:00 PM at the Gazebo in Central Park to "Plant Pride, Not Litter". The City of Mansfield will provide collection bags, gloves, and disposal of the litter collected. On the same date, Volunteers will be planting flowers in all the planters in the downtown area. 

Volunteers are asked to don their work clothes and bring their own brooms and/or shovels if they have them. 

"For 23 years we have witnessed this unique partnership with Downtown Mansfield Inc. for this clean up event as we continue to demonstrate our pride and dedication to our city," Theaker said. "This project is instrumental in encouraging others to be a part of Planting Pride, Not Litter in our city, and perfect for visitors who come to the many activities in the downtown area throughout the year. We hope you join us for this 23rd anniversary clean up event."

All volunteers will receive a certificate of appreciation and a small token of appreciation for their participation courtesy of a grant received by the City of Mansfield. Volunteers will also be entered into a drawing to win prizes at the Earth Stewardship Awards Ceremony as a participant in this event.
