Take Pride Manitoba Project
**Please note that due to COVID-19 and the state of emergency declared in Manitoba, cleanup activities will be delayed this year.**
If your community outside Winnipeg is interested in holding community cleanups in 2020, please email Colleen Kurlowich with your information.
We will have some additional funding to help you out!
The Take Pride Manitoba Project involves taking some successful Take Pride Winnipeg! programs and expanding them outside Winnipeg, to other communities in Manitoba.
Manitoba, help us #CleanCanadaTogether! Get involved today! Details will be shared on this page as events are confirmed.
