If you’re going to choose 901, don’t pick and choose 901. Yes, I love the Grizzlies. I’ve spent a little time at the establishments on Madison Ave. I’m also a part of the loyalty program at Yolo, although I’m not sure I should admit that. These are all vital parts of “the 901.”However, 901 is an area code. It is the area code for Beale Street, Harbor Town, and Sun Studios. It’s also the area code for the hundreds of tires that are dumped into the Wolf River off North McLean, the abandoned houses in South Memphis, and the amazing amount of litter present at major intersections through the city.
Yes, Memphis has its issues. To Clean Memphis, these represent an opportunity. We’re a small non-profit that regularly holds volunteer events all over the city aimed at making it a cleaner, greener place to call home, and we need you. Join us in the historic Soulsville neighborhood to clean an abandoned property. Come help us clean the litter in McKellar Lake. Drag a few tires out of Nonconnah Creek some Saturday with us. You’ll see a different side of the city we all love. You’ll be actively involved in helping Memphis put it’s best face forward.
Choose 901. Choose to make 901 a cleaner place. You’ll be amazed how much you can accomplish in 2 hours on a Saturday morning. Plus, a Saturday afternoon Wiseacre tastes much better after volunteering with Clean Memphis. It’s Science. If you come volunteer with us you can even call yourself an “environmentalist.” That opens several new doors for your love life, trust me.
