Pitch In Canada is celebrating their 39th annual event between Monday, April 18th and Sunday, April 24th this year. This non-profit organization has been working hard since 1967 to bring awareness to consumers through their "It’s up to you" campaigns – continually educating on waste reduction and environment clean-up projects.
Pitch In Canada is based entirely on more than 1.5 million volunteers across Canada comprising of individuals, groups, organizations, schools, businesses and local governments that work together to improve communities and the environment. People spend time cleaning and preserving the environment, improving delicate areas like stream beds and lakes, creating more green areas, cleaning waste from hiking trails, tourist spots and promoting events within the community.
By encouraging volunteers to register on the website, (www.pitch-in.ca) the organization can keep track of the results their efforts are making in communities. Participants are offered many free aides such as clean up equipment, safety tips, project ideas and education materials on the website. Free gifts from t-shirts, coloring books and posters are also offered to members and volunteers in the program.
If you are interested in spending a few hours to make a big difference on the environment, improve conditions for wildlife and reduce injury to animals and residents, please contact the organizers at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
