Keeping Winnipeg's Exchange District Clean!
Sustainable Youth Canada Winnipeg was pleased to host it's first event of 2018, a Garbage Cleanup on January 20th through the historic exchange district of the city.
Dedicated members of SYC arrived to brace Winnipeg's frigid winter to show that a positive change can be made anytime of year.
Huge thank you to The Winnipeg Free Press Café for generously hosting us and thus playing a crucial role in making this event a success! Executives at SYC Winnipeg hope that all participants had a fantastic time at the event, and look forward to welcoming back participants to our next upcoming event!
