Eileen Higgins Day of Action
Join Eileen Higgins, Miami-Dade County Commissioner for District 5, for a Beach Cleanup and Get Out The Vote challenge.
We are putting a twist on the traditional beach clean up. From 9am-11am we will be cleaning up trash in South Pointe Park and along South Beach. After we weigh all our trash, we have volunteers who will make 2 calls or knock one door for every pound of waste we collect. We want to keep District 5 beautiful and engage our fellow voters.
Meet at the edge of South Pointe Park, just before the beach. The campaign will provide gloves, shirts, garbage bags, and community service hours certificates for students who need them. See you there!
- Dress for the weather and wear closed-toed shoes as the shoreline is rocky in some areas
- Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses are recommended
- Bring water in a reusable bottle to reduce plastic waste (there are water fountains in the park for refills)
- Wear a face covering and maintain social distance from others
- Download the Clean Swell App to collect Citizen Science Data (required for community service hours)
