What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Clements Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

We're lucky we live in such an awesome community. It has so much to offer. So we do what we can to support the community we love. We want to be involved. Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits.

Love Promise Stories from Clements Subaru

Pridefest 2017!  –  Brandon E

Pridefest 2017!

Pridefest gives up a chance to get together as a community, meet friends, develop relationships and enjoy great entertainment. The Gay/Lesbian Community Services of Southeastern Minnesota (GLCS) held its first Pride event in 1988. As we’ve grown, it has moved to Soldiers Field. It was a huge success because of the volunteers that did all the event planning; the sponsors who helped fund the events; the vendors and performers who spent their time providing information and entertainment; and to those who attended. All are needed to make it a success. We were honored Clements Subaru was our premier sponsor. Thank you for showing your support for the LGBTQA community!!


35 Years of Summer Fun!  –  Brent A

35 Years of Summer Fun!

After 35 years, Rochesterfest continues to be successful because of the great community support of partners like Clements Subaru. Thank you so much for your major sponsorship of the Grand Parade again. The parade was moved to Saturday afternoon and the community loved it. They came earlier and stayed longer. They enjoyed southern Minnesota's biggest parade with more than 100 units! Rochesterfest is committed to promoting and celebrating the city of Rochester and southeast Minnesota annually by connecting people through a variety of wholesome, entertaining community events. It was indeed - "35 Years of Summer Fun!" My heartfelt thanks.


Locks of Compassion  –  Mary A

Locks of Compassion

Heartfelt thanks for "lifting up" the Locks of Compassion initiative in Rochester. In many parts of the world "love locks" attached to bridges and even metal trees have expressed uniting one to another. The "Locks of Compassion" project re-creates that symbolic expression of unity. Residents and visitors - many seeking healthcare assistance - are embracing this wonderful initiative and expressing their gratitude for the unique opportunity to unite their lock of compassion with so many others. Decorated locks express compassion for a child in need, a homebound senior, a family member, a visitor to our community; many are in honor of a loved one. Your sponsorship helps create new beginnings for refugee children. The display will be gifted to our great city and moved to a permanent location. When people visit Peace Plaza this summer to both create and view various expressions of compassion on decorated locks - the hope it inspires will begin to ripple … because of you!


Croquet Field Day!  –  David H

Croquet Field Day!

OMC Regional Foundation's annual amateur 9-wicket croquet tournament was held at Somerby Golf Club on a summer Sunday afternoon. It was a day for fun and a little friendly competition, and to raise funds for the expansion and facility improvements of the emergency medicine services at Olmsted Medical Center. Thank you to all players and volunteers who attended and helped to make Croquet Field Day! a huge success! A special thank you to sponsors who stepped forward. Clements is very generous to the greater Rochester community. As the local community-based healthcare organization, OMC appreciates all this support from local businesses.


#SubaruLovesToCare w/ Ronald McDonald House + LLS  –  Shannon B

#SubaruLovesToCare w/ Ronald McDonald House + LLS

In June 2017, Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) spread love, hope and warmth to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country. In Rochester, customers visiting Clements Subaru were given the chance to write personalized messages of hope to patients in their local community. Those care cards were then handed out alongside donated blankets to provide comfort and warmth to patients living at Ronald McDonald House of Rochester. A young family living at the Ronald McDonald House at the time was able to accept a blanket on the House's behalf and local blood cancer survivor, Steve Altchuler, accepted one on behalf of LLS. In July 2015, Steve was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). He was on a watch and wait protocol at Mayo Clinic first, and then had to begin chemotherapy in February 2016. Steve and his family have been wonderful supporters of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and he was honored to accept a blanket from Clements Subaru on behalf of LLS and the children who receive a wonderful home-away-from-home at the Ronald McDonald House – Rochester, MN. We are so thankful for the generosity of Clements Subaru, and very grateful for The Ronald McDonald House as they provide hospitality services to so many pediatric blood cancer patients.


Subaru Loves the Earth!  –  Ana F

Subaru Loves the Earth!

Here’s a pix from a planting session at Bamber with Daisy (Girl Scout) Troop 47868. We'll keep working on the garden. What a great initiative – Subaru and Clements Subaru supporting the National Wildlife Federation’s Certified Wildlife Habitat. And thank you for choosing Bamber Valley Elementary School. This Wildlife Habitat is a hands-on way in which our students, teachers, parents and administrators can make a difference in helping to restore native habitats, one garden (or schoolyard) at a time. There has been a movement to bring school gardens back into the forefront after years of neglect. Thanks to you and Subaru for this wonderful support of schools, kids and our environment. It is so important.


Celebrating Innovation and Creativity  –  Becca S

Celebrating Innovation and Creativity

I am overwhelmed by the support, encouragement and energy from our community through our, first ever, Innovationology event. Connections were made, innovations were discovered, and games were played! What an amazing time to see adults learning through hands-on, playful experiences. And...this is just the beginning. Creating a space where families and youth, in our community, can connect to innovate and create, is something that we must continue to foster. We can only do this with your shared passion. Thanks to your support, we were able to raise more than $33,000 that will go directly to support the mission of the Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester of Sparking Learning through Play!


Hot, Nutritious Home Delivered Meals  –  Brenda W

Hot, Nutritious Home Delivered Meals

I would like to again thank you for your great partnership during the Subaru Share the Love Event. Because of this partnership, our local Meals on Wheels program received a donation of $7,472.22! This wonderful donation makes a significant impact in the Meals on Wheels program and will provide nearly 3,700 meals! We deliver more than just meals. With each hot, nutritious meal our volunteers are also delivering daily contact, warm greetings and kindness. Meals are provided to anyone in need, regardless of their ability to pay. Recipients pay what they can afford and donations like yours help cover the rest. Thank you.


Hundreds of Pet Owners Head Out to Walk  –  Jenna M

Hundreds of Pet Owners Head Out to Walk

Thank you so very much for being a loyal sponsor for the Paws and Claws Pet Walk. We raised $23,000! Your support means so much to us and makes all the difference in the world for the animals in our care. The Walk is one of our biggest fundraising events. Our volunteerbased shelter receives no government funding, and we rely on fundraisers like the Pet Walk to survive. We cannot thank our supporters enough. This is a fun, family event where you can bring your best friends of the furry kind. It’s always fun to see the many sizes, shapes, and breeds of dogs who show up.


Celebrating 11 Years of Litter Pickup!  –  Mike K

Celebrating 11 Years of Litter Pickup!

The final results are in! Over 18,400 pounds of litter was collected by A Litter Bit Better! volunteers during this year's event. That is a total of over 9.22 tons! Approximately 3,250 volunteers picked up 241 sites that covered many locations around Rochester. Neighborhoods were beautified, citizens gave back to their community, and all of that waste was prevented from polluting our land and water. Approximately 131 tons of litter has been collected in Rochester over the past 11 years through this program. Special thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors for making this program possible for the last eleven years!


Business After Hours  –  Meghann S

Business After Hours

Thank you so much for hosting such a great event. Your team does a great job and we sincerely appreciate your continued support. Business After Hours is one of the Chamber's longest running and most successful networking events with approximately 200 people in attendance. This free monthly event offers hundreds of local Chamber members a chance to network and develop new business contacts, while experiencing unique atmospheres offered by different monthly hosts. Everyone enjoyed seeing your brand-new dealership. We wish Clements Subaru continued success.


Ribbon Cutting Celebration!  –  Rita D

Ribbon Cutting Celebration!

Our brand-new state-of-the-art dealership opened on time and on budget. Imagine that! The ribbon cutting ceremony was less than six months after our groundbreaking. We're so excited to show folks our new standard of service excellence. Rochester Area Chamber Ambassadors came to stand with us. We invited lots of others to our ribbon cutting; the architect, builder, all the vendors, business leaders, media, and of course, our new neighbors. We enjoyed delicious food and sent everyone home with a gift. This new dealership may be five times bigger, but our goal is the same - helping you find the right vehicle at the right price to best fit your needs and budget. Welcome to Clements!


A Place to Learn, Create, and Think Big!  –  Heidi H

A Place to Learn, Create, and Think Big!

Subaru Loves Learning. That's why they partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Through this initiative, Clements Subaru was able to donate outstanding science books with the goal of engaging young learners in the world of science and inspire them to want to learn more. We chose Riverside Central Elementary School here in Rochester, and boy, are we glad we did. It's an impressive school led by a forward-thinking leadership team. We found Riverside to be a place where students could learn, create, and think big. Enjoy the books. We can’t wait to visit Riverside again!


Heroes Breakfast!  –  Lori T

Heroes Breakfast!

Thank you for your generous support of the Boys & Girls Club of Rochester Heroes Breakfast and for sharing your personal story. You are recognized as one of our Corporate Heroes. Your support helps us provide experiences that enable today's young people to conquer tomorrow's challenges, provide effective programs, welcome and inspire more children who need our guidance each day, allow all kids to dream big and give them the opportunities to achieve them, and allow us to plan more effectively for more than a single year. As Coach Reeve stated regarding leading a team, "As you go, we go", and we are so impressed with the examples you set as community leaders!


Find the Love!  –  James R

Find the Love!

Ever wondered what it would be like to win a brand new car? Becky from Byron did just that! Hundreds and hundreds of entries and phone calls...and on Saturday, it came down to 25 people holding 25 Golden Tickets, ready to drive away with a two year lease of a brand-new Subaru Outback. What a fun day…everyone (and I mean everyone) piled into the new location, and we ate, we listened to a great band, and then, at noon...one by one, each contestant tried their luck…and with only ten people to go, Becky was speechless! Truly. The crowd went wild with cheers and screams and hollers! It was awesome. Thanks for partnering with Y-105FM on this fun giveaway to promote the opening of your brand-new beautiful dealership.


Day of Fun Planned for YOU!  –  Terry L

Day of Fun Planned for YOU!

They gathered their girlfriends and came for a day of shopping, entertainment and FUN! The Rochester Women's Fall Expo, back for its 20th year, was another success. This free expo attracted thousands of people. It featured more than 100 vendors sharing a wide range of products and services. Women learned about local businesses and met New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking. They loved the addition of the Clements Subaru Stage - with fashion shows, a how-to make-up session and live music. Townsquare Media of Rochester was proud to have partnered with Clements Subaru, an amazing organization, in saluting the entire community at the Women's Fall Expo. We certainly shared the love all around.


27th Annual Fall Auction Breaks Record!  –  Jenna M

27th Annual Fall Auction Breaks Record!

Thank you Clements Subaru for your Gold Paw sponsorship and for coming to our Fall Auction. You are definitely dog tested and dog approved. Our cats are pretty happy with you too. The auction featured more than 300 silent items and 30 live items, helping Paws and Claws Humane Society raise a record $41,000 for the animals in our care! Our Fall Auction is known for its wonderful themed baskets that offer something for everyone. This auction did not disappoint. We thank Clements Subaru for your sponsorship.

Invading High School Football Games  –  Caren B

Invading High School Football Games

At Townsquare Media, we believe that the backbone of America lies within its communities. We're proud to serve local high schools right in Rochester's backyard, and bring some cheer to pump up football season in Minnesota. We're also proud to establish community loyalty and presence within our area, which in turns grows our brand. Clements Subaru is all about spreading the love!

Together, with these values in common, Townsquare Media and Clements Subaru chose to share the love with local high schools during football season. Making them the stars at Football Fridays for seven weeks! Thanks for your partnership.


Muddy Warriors!  –  Cory P

Muddy Warriors!

Find your inner warrior! That's the theme of Muddy Warrior Run, the Ultimate 5K Obstacle Mud Run in Rochester. It was successful, because it's a wonderful community get-together that promotes physical activity and fun. Getting everyone together to laugh and have a good time and doing so with the purpose of helping others has always been our goal. We donated some of the proceeds to Disabled American Veterans of Minnesota. The DAV's mission is to build better lives for Minnesota veterans and their families. We're proud to help such a great organization. Was it easy? Nope. Worth it? Absolutely. We're grateful to all the military service members who volunteered, and give thanks to Clements Subaru for being our corporate sponsor. Let’s do it again next year.


Dogs get their Day in Downtown!  –  Jenna B

Dogs get their Day in Downtown!

First, thank you for your continued support of Dogs Downtown. Without you, this event would not be possible. I am excited to share that we had an estimated 9,000 in attendance at Dogs Downtown 2016! As you may recall, last year our attendance was 3,300. We are absolutely thrilled with not only the turnout, but the positive responses we have been receiving. This event was FREE and open to all of our favorite four-legged friends and their humans! Everyone enjoyed the activities, performances, games and give a ways. Congratulations on a successful event. We value our partnership with Clements Subaru and hope to have the opportunity to work with you again next year.


Fun for Everyone!  –  Brent A

Fun for Everyone!

Thanks so much for your sponsorship of this year's ROCHESTERFEST GRAND PARADE! The parade is one of the most popular summer traditions in the Med City. We had great weather, thousands of great spectators who had loads of fun. The generous support of great sponsors like CLEMENTS SUBARU make it possible for Rochesterfest to exist and for this annual "Celebration of a City" to continue to connect people through a variety of wholesome, entertaining community events. This year, with more than 60 different events over the nine-day celebration, it was "Fun for Everyone!" My sincerest thanks.


"Pop Up Play" Welcomed by Community  –  Karen C

The first "Pop Up Play" for the Museum was welcomed by the community. All guests were able to play, socialize and innovate with us at Forager. Adults and children alike were able to experience the Power of Play. The generosity of our corporate community is vital to the success of these kinds of events. On behalf of Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester and the Event and Sponsorship Committee, thank you for Clements sponsorship of the 2016 JUMBOJenga at the Platinum level. We hope that you will continue to enjoy playful learning by utilizing the JUMBOJenga set with your staff!


Successful Football Season for Med-City Freeze  –  Storm S

Successful Football Season for Med-City Freeze

It was a dream of ours to bring amateur football back to the city of Rochester and surrounding communities, and to create a safe, fun and exciting environment fans could be proud of. The community showed major support to Med-City Freeze, and at the top of the list was Clements Subaru. You supported us. You believed that we could start a new team from the ground up. The Freeze went 7-2. We outscored foes 254-95 during the regular season. Thank you for being present at the games - helping to make Mother's Day extra fun with giveaways, throwing out footballs during halftime, etc. We showed our appreciation by helping out at non-profit events, picking up litter, and we plan to do more. It was a tremendously exciting first year! We are grateful. Med-City Freeze is a full contact 9-man semipro football team based out of Rochester, MN - a member of the Southern Plains Football League.


We 'Dig" our new Subaru Dealership!  –  Rita D

We 'Dig

Look at our faces. We're excited. We're proud. We're building a new eco-friendly state of the art sales and service facility! This was our groundbreaking ceremony complete with gold shovels and hard hats. It was a beautiful June day. Customers, Chamber Ambassadors, VIPs and media were on hand to celebrate with us. Our $8-million dealership is being built on a five-acre parcel of land. With construction underway, it should open in December. We'll add 20 new positions, generating more than one million dollars in new payroll. Clements Managing Partner John Wade said, "As one of the fastest growing car brands in the USA and Southern Minnesota, Subaru is experiencing its 53rd consecutive month of growth. This expansion is what we need to keep up with the service and sales demands of our customers."


2016 Stellar Care Award  –  Rita D

2016 Stellar Care Award

The wall in our service drive boldly says, "Providing you a truly exceptional experience." That’s our goal. Not only in our service department but in all areas of Clements Subaru. We earned the coveted Subaru Stellar Care Award for 2016 and we are so proud! It's not easy to achieve. Only an elite group of Subaru retailers achieve this recognition each year. To earn it our dealership must achieve and maintain Stellar Care performance standards and objectives. The list is long and the expectations are high. We must pass continual review by our customers and meet annual objectives established by Subaru of America, Inc. in many areas. What does this mean to you? The best dealership experience possible, one that we hope will have you coming back for many years ahead. Thank you for being our customer.

Annual Spring Fest by Friends of Oxbow  –  Peggy M

Annual Spring Fest by Friends of Oxbow

Thank you for once again being a sponsor for our annual Spring Fest at Oxbow Park - and also for the basket for the silent auction. We had a great day and raised a record amount for Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo. All money will be used for a future expansion and renovation of the Nature Center - long overdue. Oxbow Park was founded in 1969 and is one of Olmsted County's premier parks. There's no admission charge for the park or zoo and more than 70,000 people visit annually. Again, thank you for your generosity. It is greatly appreciated.


Furry-Friendly Pet Walk Supports Paws & Claws!  –  Jenna M

Furry-Friendly Pet Walk Supports Paws & Claws!

Thanks so much for your support. The 22nd annual Pet Walk raised a little over $20,000 this year. The Pet Walk was packed with fun activities for pets and their humans including free food and beverages, doggy bandannas, temporary tattoos, and of course, a wonderful walk in the sun. All proceeds benefited Paws and Claws Humane Society - committed to partnering with the community to shelter, protect and seek adoptive homes for abandoned or lost companion animals. Local pet-friendly businesses, like Clements Subaru, added to the event. Your guys were so much fun and I hope we can continue with this tradition in years to come. Thanks again! We couldn't do it without support from sponsors like Clements Subaru!

Help Protect the Monarch Butterflies

Thank you to everyone who visited Clements Subaru during the month of April. We handed out 200 milkweed seed packages so customers could pledge to help the monarch butterflies thrive and become a butterfly hero. Did you know that one out of three bites on our dinner plates is made possible by pollinators? We must protect the monarch butterfly! All of us at Clements Subaru are proud to have a National Wildlife Federation's Certified Wildlife Habitat. Stop by and check out our commitment to the environment. #SubaruLovestheEarth


Perfect Day for a Plunge  –  Kevin T

Perfect Day for a Plunge

Despite single digit temperatures, the Rochester Polar Plunge saw 935 people jump into the icy water and raise more than $245,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota. The Polar Plunge is part of Minnesota law enforcement's yearround Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraising schedule to benefit Special Olympics. All proceeds go to Special Olympics Minnesota and are dispersed throughout the state. Among first-time plungers were football players Marcus Sherels of the Minnesota Vikings and Tim Nela of the Rochester Freeze/Clements Subaru. The pair jumped in with members of the Rochester Flyers, a local Specials Olympics team that serves more than 250 athletes. The athletes that got to plunge and meet you at the Polar Plunge were very excited and still are. Thank you.

Pet Adoption Fun!  –  Tanya J

Pet Adoption Fun!

Paws and Claws Humane Society has a tremendous impact on Rochester and its surrounding communities. It's a busy place. We can provide care for 125 lost or abandoned companion animals on a daily basis. That means we average about 100 pet adoptions a month! It was fun to partner with Clements Subaru. October was Subaru Loves Pets month and Clements Subaru provided us with bright orange Subaru Loves Pets drawstring bags filled with goodies. People LOVED them! Thank you so much!


Football Friday Tailgate Party!  –  Scotty M

Football Friday Tailgate Party!

Nothing brings a community together like their unwavering love for high school football, and the 2015 season promised to be a banner year for all four Rochester teams Mayo, Lourdes, Century and John Marshall High School. We teamed up with Clements Subaru for the first ever Football Fridays. It was a huge success! Each week 106.9 KROC was live at one of the games for a tailgate party. Fans turned out to show their school spirit and for fun, music and prizes. Minnesota Vikings and JM alum Marcus Sherels was even on hand signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Clements Subaru was great to work with. We wouldnt have been able to showcase our local schools without their support. Hopefully this will become an annual partnership with Clements.


RCTC celebrates its 100th anniversary!  –  Greg S

RCTC celebrates its 100th anniversary!

When Rochester Community and Technical College asked KSMQ Public Television to produce a documentary celebrating their Centennial Anniversary and History we accepted! To help with costs of production we looked for sponsors. Clements Subaru jumped at the opportunity to help make the story about an important part of their community possible. Clements Subaru also supports quality and excellence in their community by sponsoring local public television programs on a regular basis.


Helping Meals on Wheels  –  Brenda W

Helping Meals on Wheels

Partnering with Clements Subaru in June to Stuff the Subaru was a great experience. Not only did we gather needed items for Meals on Wheels survival kits, Clements loaned us a vehicle for the Rochesterfest Parade! Family Service Rochester looks forward to our continued work together. Earlier this year our Meals on Wheels program received a grant of $1,750. It was made possible by the Subaru Share the Love event, through which Subaru donated $250 for every new vehicle used or leased to a participating charity of the owners choice. Thank you Clements Subaru!

Rochester Tailgate Party supports at-risk youth

Bolder Options is celebrating 21 years of changing the lives of youth in Minnesota. This year's Rochester Tailgate Party was a huge success. Without donations like yours, we could not continue our mission of "teaching youth to succeed in ALL of life's races." Thank you for supporting the youth of Bolder Options.


Willow Creek Lifelong Learners  –  Josie W

Willow Creek Lifelong Learners

Clements Subaru adopted my EL classroom. I cannot express enough how grateful I am on behalf of my students.

We will work everyday to become future members of society who seek to be lifelong learners. Thank you.


Doggone Good Day!  –  Jenna B

Doggone Good Day!

The Rochester Downtown Alliance (RDA) partnered with Clements Subaru on its first ever Dogs Downtown. Our vision was to create a place for pet owners and dog lovers alike to gather and enjoy family fun activities at Peace Plaza in the heart of the city. The day was a hit! Through our Eco-Counter we estimated 3,300+ people attended Dogs Downtown. That was just people and not our 4-legged friends. Activities ranged from training demonstrations, dog pampering, guest speakers and giveaways of doggy treats. It highlighted the great pet resources offered in Rochester, MN. We enjoyed the partnership and support of Clements Subaru. We heard lots of wonderful feedback and we appreciated their energy with this inaugural event.


Clements Subaru sponsors Grand Parade!  –  Carole B

Clements Subaru sponsors Grand Parade!

Rochesterfest has been the citywide celebration in Rochester for 30 plus years. This nine-day celebration has something for everyone - with the Grand Parade being the highlight.

LITTER Bit Better  –  Mike K

LITTER Bit Better

One week every April, thousands of volunteers work together across Rochester to scour ditches, parks, waterways and boulevards to pick up tons of trash! Service groups, businesses, scout troops, schools, faith groups, and neighborhoods pitch in to make A Litter Bit Better! an annual event in the City of Rochester. This year Clements Subaru joined in and picked up litter along the West Side of the Zumbro River from 16th Street SW to 12th Street SW. Thank you all again for all of your time and hard work! More than 3,800 pounds of recycling and 27,000 pounds of trash were collected by volunteers during this year's event. That's a combined total of over 15.44 tons! Your efforts, combined with those of over 3,000 participants, resulted in yet another successful year of A Litter Bit Better!
