White Center needs Our Help!!

The White Center Community Development Association (CDA) is organizing its 21st annual Refresh/ Spring Clean. If you love White Center, then volunteer to help us clean it up. Volunteers who give three hours working to clean up White Center will get the latest version of the famous “I Love White Center” T-shirt.

Volunteers have two Saturdays to choose from; April 20 and April 27.

Saturday, April 20, 2024 (Meet at 9 am at 98th and 15th)

To honor our wonderful Cambodian/American neighbors, who will be celebrating the Cambodian New Year the next weekend (Saturday, April 27), on April 20 we will focus on covering graffiti and cleaning up the downtown area around SW 98th between 17th and 14th, where the Cambodian New Year celebration will be.

We need crews to help cover graffiti, touch up murals, paint the front of buildings, pick up trash, and clean the windows of local businesses. Our goal is to make the area beautiful again for the Cambodian New Year celebration that occurs the following weekend. We will provide paint, brushes, and equipment to sweep and clean windows.

We also need crews to go to the four “Welcome to White Center” signs that each say “Welcome” in 10 languages, to clean them up, add flowers and bark around each sign, paint the brick foundations and poles if needed, and rake the areas surrounding each sign. These signs are located at Roxbury/18th , Roxbury/10th, SW 108th/4th, and Delridge/18th. For these crews, bring brooms and gloves, we will provide flowers, bark, paint, sign cleaner, and bags for trash.

Saturday, April 27, 2024 (Meet at 9 am at the Saars Parking lot)

We will continue removing graffiti in areas around White Center and support Evergreen students to help us touch of their previous great art on the north side of Saars market and on both sides of SE 108th between 16th and 17th. We will also have crews walking throughout White Center covering graffiti and picking up trash. After our clean up effort, we can all go celebrate the Cambodian New Year!!

Sign up by email or text. Tell us your group size, and shirt sizes. We can make White Center beautiful again, if you help us.
