The Give Back Hour

Do you have an hour to give?

Give Back Hours are free, one-hour virtual volunteering sessions featuring an activity from one of PGK's vetted nonprofit partners, who join us for the session. Together, we learn more about the cause areas we care about while completing an act of service together.

More virtual service options will be coming your way this year, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter (if you haven't already) to get the latest details delivered to your inbox!

Litter Clean Up

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

5 PM PACIFIC TIME / 8 PM EASTERN

Click here to register for this free activity. 

Presented By:  Clean Planet Project

Join Project Giving Kids and the Clean Planet Project for a neighborhood litter clean-up, using the Litter CleanUp App!

Home to more than 7 billion people and about 8.7 million species, Earth is big. It’s easy for us to feel small and not know how to help, but there are lots of ways you can give back to this place we call home.

By getting outside and cleaning up in your community, you are carrying out The Clean Planet Project’s global mission of making the planet a cleaner place for all. The progress that you make on the app is also contributing directly to our overall litter count as an organization. Every piece of litter counts!

Join the Clean Planet Project and Project Giving Kids for a neighborhood litter clean-up and a recycling awareness poster-making project! During the event, you'll have an opportunity to learn more about the Clean Planet Project, Project Giving Kids, the importance of caring for our planet, and more!
