Glass Street Cleanup

Project Close

What happens when a community comes together around place? Pride, ownership and a sense of hope.

Organized in conjunction with Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise’s NeighborGood Week, the Glass Street Cleanup actively engaged residents in the process of image-making for their neighborhood. The idea was simple: set a date, rally some people, pick up trash. But for Glass Street, the result was profound: neighbors worked together, took ownership and cultivated pride in place—demonstrating a community-wide commitment to making the area safer, cleaner and more inviting. By helping individuals invest time, creativity and knowledge into their home, the cleanup unlocked and tapped a new sense of love and hope for Glass Street.

Outcome:
Engaged 15+ volunteers for the clean up.
