NARROWSBURG – River valley businesses, municipalities, and organizations can show their support for the 2nd Annual Upper Delaware Litter Sweep by becoming keepsake t-shirt sponsors or contributing supplies and services for the April 22-30 series of clean-ups.
As the event coordinator, the Upper Delaware Council (UDC) is offering a limited opportunity for those who donate by March 18 to have their names or logos printed on the eye-grabbing, customized shirts that Litter Sweep volunteers will receive in gratitude.
Contributions will be recognized with progressive prominence in three category levels:
LITTER ENEMIES: $100
LITTER AVENGERS: $250
LITTER SLAYERS: $500
Since last year’s supply of 250 shirts ran out thanks to the huge response for 21 organized clean-up events over a nine-day period, the UDC plans to order approximately 400 shirts neon-colored for safety in 2022 featuring artwork of a bald eagle carrying trash away in its talons that was originally designed by Dan Nelson of Happy Tattoo, Honesdale, PA.
The UDC will also publicize t-shirt sponsors’ generosity in its promotional outreach and social media postings.
That will be the case as well for any offerings of goods and services for this Earth Day inspired initiative that is wholly supported by donations.
Any funds raised beyond the cost of the t-shirts will enable the purchase of additional safety equipment and materials to facilitate the land-based clean-ups that local Litter Leaders will arrange throughout the 15 New York towns and Pennsylvania townships surrounding the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
Please contact Ashley Hall-Bagdonas by 12 p.m. on March 18 at (845) 252-3022 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a t-shirt sponsorship level.
