OneHolyoke’s #KeepItClean2K19 Campaign

OneHolyoke CDC kicked-off its citywide KeepItClean2k19 campaign, an initiative to clean Holyoke’s streets, at the Flats Community Building, 43 Canal Street, on April 22nd at 10 am and ended on September 21st 2019.

OneHolyoke Community Development Corporation a nonprofit organization, hosted a cleaning campaign  starting out of the Flats Community Building, 43 Canal Street in Holyoke, every forth Saturday of the month through September. Wonderful partners on opposite weeks did clean-ups as well. Holyoke organizations were encouraged to volunteer to host their own cleaning events, and the community really came together to do so. We also participated in cleaning events throughout the city hosted by other Holyoke Organizations.  The goal of #KeepItClean2K19 was to promote weekly neighborhood clean ups through fall with an end of the year city wide cleanup event. This event was hosted on September 21 2019, and led all volunteers to Taste of South Holyoke.

#KeepItClean2K19 is a grassroots community initiative focused on inspiring residents of Holyoke to take ownership of their streets. Our mission is to clean-up and organize identified “problem locations”, keeping these spaces clean throughout the rest of the year.

Holyoke residents may participate individually by cleaning their yard, sweeping their steps, or raking leaves. While doing so, take a minute, snap a photo and share on social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter, using the hashtag #KeepItClean2K19. developing an awesome collage of community cleaning assisting, furthering the mission of #KeepItClean2k19 of inspiring a sense of ownership throughout the city. hashtag #KeepItClean2K19 is a way of keeping the community connected throughout the initiative, allowing residents or partners to participate at their own convenience.

We ask that anyone interested in participating next year to please contact us for more information, for supplies, for support, or to be included in the hosting rotation. Contact Community Engagement Director Nayroby Rosa-Soriano of OneHolyoke CDC at 413-409-2004, or via email at
