Brad Stafford, owner of our local Tim Hortons’ stores reports that success of previous years’ Tim Hortons’ Community Clean-ups have helped lead the company to forge a new partnership with PITCH-IN Canada and expand these cleanups nationally with a new PITCH-IN Week sponsorship. Tim Hortons is the title sponsor of PITCH-IN Week, which will take place April 17th-23rd and overlap with Earth Day on April 22nd, 2016.
Tim Hortons and PITCH-IN Canada are set to support over 15,000 clean-ups with more than 725,000 volunteers cleaning up over 3 MILLION pounds of garbage. This will make PITCH-IN Week the largest environmental improvement campaign in the country.
Unlike previous Tim Hortons community clean-ups, this new program involves community groups registering for a clean-up through PITCH-IN Canada. Once registered, PITCH-IN Canada will send each group complimentary garbage and recycling bags depending on the size of your clean up initiative.
Participating in PITCH-IN Week allows people across the country to be a part of a true Canadian tradition that has been keeping communities clean for 49 years. With the help of Tim Hortons, PITCH-IN Canada is able to grow their PITCH-IN Week to cover all provinces and truly make this clean up, coast-to-coast.
To register your community group for PITCH-IN Week proudly sponsored by Tim Hortons, please go to www.pitch-in.ca to register online OR print out the registration form and fax/mail it in to PITCH-IN Canada.
Community groups can vary in size from having a family clean up to having an entire school help beautify the environment. To further support the campaign, consider ordering a 2016 PITCH-IN Week crest or flying a PITCH-IN Week flag in your community. Lastly, get a certificate of participation for every volunteer at www.pitch-in.ca to commemorate the event and keep the tradition alive.
