SLO Downtown Association holds community clean-up

The San Luis Obispo Downtown Association is organizing its second Downtown Proud event, where residents can participate in a community clean-up day on Saturday.

The volunteer event starts in Mission Plaza at 8 a.m. and will continue until 11 a.m. in preparation for anticipated storms this winter, according to a news release.

The downtown association is seeing volunteers, who will be broken into teams and assigned a section of downtown San Luis Obispo with a “to-do” list and supplies to complete the job.

Downtown business owners are also encouraged to participate by sweeping and cleaning the area in front of their businesses on or before Saturday and showing support by using the hashtags #DowntownProud and #DowntownSLO.
