Members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) District 35 Algoma University Support Staff, rolled up their sleeves to be good neighbours and participate in the clean- up of their neighbourhood during the 5th Annual 20-Minute Makeover.

“This is a great opportunity for our membership to be good neighbours by actively participating in cleaning up of our neighbourhood around the Algoma U campus and the City of Sault Ste. Marie,” said OSSTF District 35 President, Margaret Neveau. “We take great pride in our work, our campus, our beautiful city, and respect the sacred land in which our campus is situated.”

The 20-Minute Makeover is a provincial initiative upheld by cities across Ontario. Coinciding with Earth Day or taking place afterward, the 20-Minute Makeover strives to promote city pride, beautification, and a clean, sustainable environment.

Citizens who participate are encouraged to clean up their homes or businesses for at least 20 minutes by picking up litter and/or removing graffiti tags.

Over 40 members of the OSSTF District 35 Algoma U Support Staff participated in the event, including Karl Dean, Field Secretary from the Provincial OSSTF Office. 

Dr. Craig Chamberlin, Algoma University President and Vice Chancellor of Algoma U joined OSSTF District 35 Algoma U Support Staff members to participate in the clean-up.

Members helped clean up Hugill St., Mark St., John Rowswell Hub Trail, and the wooded area around campus, and a nearby park.
