PITCH-IN Canada Opens Registration for 53rd Annual Clean Up
Tim Hortons & PITCH-IN Canada partner to promote environmental stewardship across Canada. Residents and organizations dedicated to environmental conservation will come together across Canada to participate in the 53rd Annual PITCH-IN Week running April 19th-26th, 2020.
PITCH-IN Week began in 1967 with a handful of concerned citizens picking up harmful debris along the shore of Vancouver Island. In 2019 over 850,000 people committed to participating in their local neighborhoods from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Port Alice, British Columbia, and collectively removed over 5.65 million pounds of litter!
In their fifth year of sponsorship, Tim Horton’s has partnered with PITCH-IN to support their stance on positive contribution to environmental stewardship.
“As one of Canada’s most popular restaurant chains, we recognize we all have a responsibility to limit the environmental impact we have on our planet,” said Chris Wakefield, Regional Marketing, Tim Hortons Canada. “That’s why Tim Hortons is pleased to continue to partner with PITCH-IN Canada in this important annual initiative taking place across the country.”
PITCH-IN makes it easy to sign up and take action. On their site, participants can easily find resources for campaign support materials, frequently asked questions and links to online and mail-in registration. Once registered, PITCH-IN sends participants clear and yellow bags to aid in sorting and recycling efforts.
Registration will stay open through the month of August; however, free waste and recycling bags will be provided while supplies last. For more information, or to register, go to www.pitch-in.ca and check in with PITCH-IN on social media outlets.
