The 6th Annual Give Back Day is Thursday, May 16, 2019!
THURSDAY… the Klamath Falls City Schools, Blue Zones Project of Klamath Falls, and JustServe.org are hosting the sixth annual Give Back Day. It is also a way to kick off the first Third Thursday Event of the season by spring cleaning Klamath Falls!
The Klamath Falls City Schools started to Give Back Day in 2014 as a way to show the community how much students care. In total, students and staff have contributed 18,000 hours of community service, and 15,000 students have learned the value of giving back to their community. Klamath Falls County Schools gave back to the community earlier in the fall.
Students from across the City Schools will show their love for their community through service projects such as window washing along Main Street and Klamath Avenue, bike path mile markers cleanup, staining downtown benches, planting flowers downtown, landscaping at Kiger Stadium, at local churches and at the Cerulean Hotel, cleaning up Veterans Park, Moore Park Marina, Lake Ewauna Nature Trail, Link River Trail, Moore Park and local public areas.
Blue Zones is organizing four additional projects where community members can give back:
Klamath Trails Alliance: Rebuilding Klamath Ridgeview Trail
Mills Neighborhood Association: “Pick a Corner, Plant a Flower” along East Main Street
Ella Redkey Pool
Steen Sports Park: Fit Trail Maintenance

Blue Zones Project – Klamath Falls is excited to work with the Klamath Falls City School District and JustServe.org for Give Back Day 2019!
