The Big Payback
Wednesday, May 3rd
Greenways for Nashville is participating in The Big Pay Back on Wednesday, May 3rd. The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day that celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits. This year, we are partnering with Nashville B-Cycle to offer 20% off memberships to those that donate to GfN on May 3rd.
Kicking off at midnight on Wednesday, May 3, the 24-hour online giving day helps raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to pressing needs in our community. Gifts made to participating organizations during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses throughout the day.
Spring Clean for Earth Day
Saturday, April 22nd
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than helping spruce up Nashville neighborhoods and greenways? Join us on April 22, for Nashville’s Citywide Spring Clean event! Volunteers are needed to clean waterways and collect litter across the city.
The Mayor’s Citywide Spring Clean is an annual partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement, Metro Public Works Beautification Division, Comcast, Hands On Nashville, Cumberland River Compact and the YMCA of Middle Tennessee where teams work together and pick up litter in neighborhoods, roadways and streams. Last year, the efforts of this partnership resulted in 94 clean-ups and over 80,000 pounds of litter and illegal dumping picked up from Nashville’s streets, alleys and streams.
