United By Blue teamed up with Riverfront North Partnership, Philadelphia Water Department, Keep Philadelphia Beautiful and The Green Program to host July's Delaware River Cleanup . 116 people gathered at Frankford Boat Launch on Tuesday evening, and spread out for a mile along the waterfront. From hauling heavy tires, to sifting through bits of Styrofoam, our volunteers worked tirelessly to make our river a healthier more beautiful Delaware. In total we picked up 2920 lbs. of trash and recycling from the riverbanks in just 2 hours!
Special thanks to Little Baby's Ice Cream for serving up some sweet treats after the cleanup to all of the deserving volunteers!
