Keep It Clean: Neighborhood Cleanup and Fútbol Festival

Keep It Clean!

Neighborhood Cleanup and Fútbol Festival

“KIC” off a new era of soccer and community involvement at Marquette Park! Join your neighbors at the park and throughout the Dutchtown neighborhood for a cleanup in the morning. Then stay tuned for friendly soccer matches on the field and futsal court in the afternoon.

How You Can Help

Join us at the park at 9am to grab tools, food and drinks, and t-shirts (while supplies last). We’ll head out into the park and across the neighborhood to tackle trash, weeds, and other unsightly scenes around Marquette.

You can also help out from home—clean up your front and back yards, pick up litter in your alley, cut back weeds and bushes, or find other ways to spruce up your house and your block.

Stick around to cheer on the soccer players starting at noon. Players from Dutchtown and across the region will be showing off their skills on the main field along Louisiana and on the new futsal court at Virginia and Gasconade.

Paid Opportunities for Youth

Neighbors ages 16 to 24 can earn $10 an hour for up to eight hours by coming out and helping with the cleanup efforts. Email kicstlouis@gmail.com or call (314) 265-6186 to register. Pre-registration is required.
