Annual Elmwood Community Cleanup in Honor of Jim Gifford

October 2 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

This main corridor at South Avenue receives heavy commuter traffic every day. This annual clean-up is named in honor of Jim Gifford, a kind and selfless man whose life exemplified city living from his South Avenue home and whose death through violence, eight years ago, brought many in Elmwood together at a heartbreaking moment. Jim cared deeply for his neighborhood – he walked to work, to church, to shop, to live his life – and this event aims to honor his hopes for the community around him.
