OPERATION CHOZEN! A Community Initiative- Atlanta Community Clean-Up

OPERATION CHOZEN, a Community Initiative, with the 2011 focus of cleaning up Atlanta each Saturday in the month of March. The month of March will be known and recognized as the official “OPERATION CHOZEN! A Community Initiative Month” as proclaimed by City of Atlanta’s District 2 on March 5, 2011 at the community clean-up opener.


Several area organizations and patrons like Matthew Garbett, President of Fourth Ward Neighbors and Garry Harris, Executive Director of Center of Sustainable Communities have coordinated teams of volunteers for the community cleanup to take place in the Old Fourth Ward and Washington Park.


Angel of Love Events and CHOZEN AWARDS as well as all of the volunteer team leaders, are recruiting both businesses and community members to do their part for the clean-up effort.   There are neighborhoods in the city of Atlanta and metro areas that could benefit from this initiative, in particular within the Atlanta Beltline.


“The Atlanta BeltLine is connecting 45 city neighborhoods with new trails, parks and — soon — transit options. It is creating opportunities for new jobs, affordable housing, and healthier communities,” said Executive Director Valarie Wilson.  “With the support and involvement of the communities it serves, through projects like the CHOZEN AWARDS Clean-Up Days, the Atlanta BeltLine is improving Atlantans’ quality of life.”  OPERATION CHOZEN is an effort that the general public can easily take advantage of by doing their part.  


All volunteers have the opportunity to receive reward points by signing up and adding your volunteer hours on http://www.dogoodgetrewards.com under OPERATION CHOZEN.
