Vote for our cleanup!

cleanup volunteerCitizens Energy Group, our longtime partner, has entered a video competition that could benefit the Friends — with your help! Our Annual White River Cleanup is the subject of the video and the competition is the Super Service Challenge, a nationwide challenge that encourages companies to donate their time, share stories of service, and win funding for nonprofits in their communities. Your vote can qualify the Friends to win money, from $500 to $1,000 in donations!

We urge you to watch the video and cast your vote on behalf of the Friends now! It takes only a couple of minutes of your time to invest in the banks of White River.

For nearly thirty years, Citizens Energy Group has partnered with us for the Annual White River Spring Clean-up, with their employees and families encompassing the majority of the volunteers in attendance. This past spring, volunteers were asked “Why do you serve?”. Their responses have been compiled into a video that has been entered into the Super Service Challenge, a nationwide movement to transform business through service. The more votes a video gets, the more opportunities for the organization to win money, from $500 to $1,000 in donations! Friends of the White River has the opportunity to be randomly selected to win.

That is where you all come in. You can view all the Citizens Energy Group videos and vote for the White River Clean-up. The more votes a video gets, the more opportunities we have to win! Prize money will help sustain and improve access points along the river, go towards educational programming and events for all ages, and towards improving our app, the White River Guide.

We are extremely grateful to Citizens Energy Group and the dedication they have had to helping Friends of the White River in our conservation efforts. We hope you will join all of us on our next river clean-up event in the spring of 2016, or become a member of Friends of the White River. Thanks!
