Harrisburg, PA (November 21, 2013)—In time for the city’s holiday parade on Saturday, businesses in the Harrisburg Downtown Improvement District (HDID) will display the 2Minute Tuesday logo in their windows as new members of the 2Minute Tuesday Business Club.

Recently, HDID joined partners Community Action Commission (CAC), Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC, today’s the day Harrisburg who have been working together for over a year to promote the 2Minute Tuesday Business Club, a project of the Harrisburg Clean & Green Coalition.

“We are pleased to join CAC, the Chamber/CREDC and today’s the day Harrisburg in promoting such a unique initiative. In continuing our mission focusing on clean, safe, and beautiful, we feel this partnership in the 2Minute Tuesday Business Club fits in well with the services we provide to the downtown community,” said Todd Vander Woude, Executive Director of the HDID.

The 2Minute Tuesday Business Club asks Harrisburg businesses to sign an annual commitment to cleanup and sweep up outside of their business every Tuesday. It’s designed to highlight Harrisburg businesses and their commitment to making our city a cleaner and safer place for everyone to live, work, and play.

“Not only is the goal to keep the city clean, but by businesses stepping outside to maintain the cleanliness of their exteriors, they are more apt to build relationships with the community,” says Tara Leo Auchey, who started 2Minute Tuesday.

An idea adapted from an initiative in York, 2Minute Tuesday was started in 2011 as a call to action and campaign of civic duty and business practice. 2Minute Tuesday is an initiative encouraging City of Harrisburg residents and businesses to take two minutes every Tuesday to clean up in front of their residences and businesses, from picking up litter to pulling weeds to sweeping the sidewalk.

Last year, the 2Minute Tuesday Business Club was formed as part of the regional Harrisburg Clean & Green Coalition.
