The Lowertown Clean Up Crew is made up of Lowertown business, resident, and other community member volunteers who strive to keep the Lowertown neighborhood of St. Paul a beautiful urban destination.  Crew volunteers meet monthly to pick up trash in Mears Park and around the Lowertown neighborhood. 

Rachel, a Clean Up Crew volunteer, states "I love living in Lowertown. I also love Mears Park, but I hate the litter.  That's why I joined the Clean Up Crew. I'm a resident - it's my responsibility to keep it clean."

SPIRE Business Development Director Rachael Reiling coordinates the Clean Up Crew. “After our St. Paul branch moved to Cray Plaza, we discovered how passionate and proud businesses and residents are of the Lowertown neighborhood,” reflects Rachael, “We asked how we can help contribute and the Clean Up Crew began. It’s been an excellent way for SPIRE to give back to the community and for the other businesses and residents to connect.”

After each Clean Up Crew event, participants are encouraged to stop by Lowertown's Black Dog Cafe for refreshments and conversation.
