Following the historic flood that hit our area last week, the Brandywine is now seeking volunteers for a campus-wide cleanup event on Saturday, September 18. Join us as we work together to clean up debris and damage along our campus, trails and the areas surrounding our historic properties.
- Gloves will be available at the check-in table, but you are encouraged to bring your own if you have them. Shovels and wheelbarrows are also needed, if you have them.
- At this time, restrooms within our buildings are not available for use. Portable toilets will be available on campus.
- Due to the nature of this cleanup, we recommend this event for adults and children ages 9 & up. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
- Volunteer check-in will be between 8–10 a.m at the Brandywine Conservancy building on Saturday, September 18. The cleanup will last until 1 p.m.
Our community’s response in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida has been tremendous and we are so thankful to have such wonderful members, donors and friends! If you are unable to join us but still want to support our efforts to clean up and repair the significant damage to our campus and buildings, you can also support our Emergency Flood Relief at www.brandywine.org/give.
