Bernalillo County – Youth groups, school clubs and teams are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $500 as part of Bernalillo County’s annual South Valley Clean Up Day.
The grants will be awarded to nonprofit youth groups that help remove litter during the county’s annual South Valley event on April 14.
“This is a great chance for young people to get involved in keeping Bernalillo County beautiful, and to earn money for their hard work,” Bernalillo County Commission Chair Art De La Cruz says. “Our South Valley Clean Up Day is a great opportunity for South Valley youth to actively participate in community service, learn about civic responsibility and value the importance of keeping our neighborhoods clean and safe.”
Supplies such as trash bags and T-shirts will be provided by the county.
The grants are part of the New Mexico Clean and Beautiful program, of the New Mexico Tourism Department.
