Tioga was proud to once again join Clean Memphis to give back to our community for the Martin Luther King Day of Service. Every year for MLK Day, our staff takes some time off to participate in a cleanup that Clean Memphis organizes. This year, we visited the Uptown neighborhood of Memphis to pick up litter around the Bickford Community Center and Park.
“Cleanups are very satisfying when you look back along the road and see the difference you have made,” said Tioga founder and president Maggie Strom. “In just a couple hours, the area was cleared of trash and we had dozens of filled garbage bags.”
Maggie currently serves as the president of the board of Clean Memphis, a nonprofit grassroots organization that advocates for creating a cleaner city. The organization hosts cleanups regularly around town and is always looking for volunteers to lend a hand. See their schedule and sign up today.
