Ever wondered how to lead a neighborhood clean up? Come hear from HandsOn expert Eve Shafi, Director of Projects and Partnerships with HandsOn Frederick County to learn how to mobilize and lead a county wide beautification day that also raises money for local nonprofits. Similar to a walk‐a‐thon, The Big Sweep participants collect donations and sponsorships for picking up trash on roads, waterways and parks throughout the County. In 2010, over 1,000 volunteers and 60 service leaders picked up over 13 tons of trash and recyclables and 344 tires and raised over $47,000 for nonprofits, school clubs, churches etc.
