Bay Shore students clean graffiti near Main Street during SpruceUp 2012

About SpruceUp

SpruceUp Bay Shore is an annual community clean-up event organized by the non-profit Bay Shore Beautification Society.  By bringing volunteers, service groups, businesses and local government together, SpruceUp seeks not only to improve the quality of life in the Bay Shore-Brightwaters community, but also to provide ample opportunity for people to get involved in service projects.

Each year, Beautification will plan pre-selected volunteer projects, such as the Train Station and Main Street cleanups.  In addition, we encourage groups of friends and neighbors to create their own projects where they see a need.  For example, a neighborhood litter patrol, or an area garden installation.  We’re also thrilled to have our local business owners join in the spirit of SpruceUp by completing a project that enhances the appearance of their business or property.  Every project counts and makes a difference, no matter how big or small!

In the first two events, SpruceUps 2012 and 2013, residents, neighbors, church groups, businesses, landscapers, service organizations and students showed up in full force–over 500 volunteers between the two events–to weed, clip, trim, sweep, paint, clean, plant, dig and clean!  So far, over 45  major community service projects were completed by these incredible volunteers at these two events.
