What Does a Troop Do?

What Parish Proud Provides

Parish Proud will provide you with as many grabbers, saftey vests, and bags that you’ll need for your group. Parish Proud also provides logistical assistance to their pods, in the form of location selection, ongoing promotions and partnerships.

What You Provide

You provide the manpower. Whether you gather your organization, family, or friends, you are in charge of who is in your Team and how many times you clean an area. 

When we’re able to connect to a city or neighborhood through an individual or shared experience of its public spaces, there’s a magnetic pull. You want to stay committed. You want to invest. You want to build a future. Those are the preconditions for civic transformation.
