Making St. Louis a cleaner, greener, better place to live!

Dedicated to cleaning, greening St. Louis since 1982

From graffiti removal to Blitz to the daffodils that sprout their blooms all around town, Brightside St. Louis is the city’s oldest and most comprehensive not-for-profit cleaning and greening group. Learn more about what we’re doing to grow an even more beautiful St. Louis!

Brightside is funded through donations from individuals, companies and foundations and by a grant from HUD and the St. Louis Community Development Administration.

#GivingTuesday is November 30th

#GivingTuesday is November 30th

In just one week, the world comes together for #GivingTuesday on November 30th, 2021.

To celebrate this global day of giving every act of generosity counts.  Giving together makes it count even more!

Please support Brightside’s clean-up and beautification programs this #GivingTuesday.  Donate your money or time or both:

  • A $100 donation to Brightside provides supplies for a volunteer workday. (Brightside volunteers invested over 15,000 hours to improve St. Louis in 2021.)
  • Pick up litter!  Spend 20 minutes picking up litter on your block or around your workplace.  (A little bit of your time can help keep our communities clean.)
  • Help a neighbor properly dispose of trash or recyclables.  (Call 314-772-4646 to learn more about bulk pick-up and our recycling database.)
  • Snap an #UnSelfie of any giving activity you do this #GivingTuesday to encourage others to join this global movement.

Every dollar donated to Brightside on #GivingTuesday 2021 will be matched!
