It’s been a long, cold winter so we’re encouraging people to get out of their homes and businesses to collaborate with neighbors for a common good – a cleaner city! We want Walker’sPoint to stay the vibrant, living neighborhood it is, and for residents and businesses to take pride in their neighborhood. Jane Jacobs, an activist who influenced urban studies said, “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” We’d add to that statement by saying that not only should cities be created by everyone, but kept clean by everyone, too.
Arrive at MobCraft Beer anytime between 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM to pick up supplies and select your area to clean up.
Head off to your area and collect anything that doesn’t belong. Find something unique? Keep it close at hand and you could win a prize.
Return to MobCraft Beer to drop off your bags, supplies and treasures. Enjoy a cold beverage and feel good about the impact you made.
McDonalds will be giving out coupons to all participants that can be redeemed for a free Ice Cream Cone through May at McDonald’s on 1st & National.
Awards and prizes will be announced after 4:00 PM. You do not need to be present to win.
Help us Help our Youth!
The WPA will be holding a flash fundraiser in January and February to raise money for the WPA Scholarship. For every $1,000 we raise, we will award an additional scholarship.
The scholarships go to Bradley Tech graduating seniors to further their education at an institution of their choice. The recipients are selected by the Tech Alumni Association. We have been partnering with them and matching donor, Bob Feind since 2019. Mr. Feind is a local business owner and a founding member of the Walker’s Point Association. Each year, he matched the scholarship so we were able to help additional students continuing learning.
We established some key levels of giving, but every dollar helps. If you donate at the Signature Scholarship level, you have the opportunity to co-brand the scholarship.
