Call for Volunteers!
Graffiti “Brush Off” & Litter Clean Up

DENVER ­— Pick-up a paint brush and give graffiti the “brush off” along stretches of Federal Boulevard! Denver Public Works is looking for more volunteers for the Annual Graffiti “Brush Off” and Litter Clean Up on Saturday, July 23.

Each year, Denver Public Works Graffiti Abatement crews respond to thousands of incidents around the city. Graffiti vandalism sends a negative message about a community. That’s why each summer, Denver Public Works counts on volunteers to team up for a few hours to join forces to help tackle graffiti, remove litter, and keep Denver beautiful!

Supplies, thank you gifts and lunch will be provided. Those who are interested in taking part in this event can register to volunteer online or visit denvergov.org/graffiti for more information.

Denver Public Works also encourages residents to report graffiti vandalism in Denver by calling 311 and on Pocketgov, the City’s mobile web application. After creating a simple user profile, residents can take a picture of the graffiti with their phone, tag the location, and send the report.
