Tampa Bohras Help Clean City for Stanley Cup Celebrations

Volunteers from the Dawoodi Bohra community of Tampa partnered with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and Friends of the River Walk to help clean up parts of the downtown area of the city in preparation for the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team’s Stanley Cup celebrations.

Cleanliness is a key part of the Dawoodi Bohra faith.  The clean-up drive of the city’s River Walk is an annual event that the local Bohras undertake with Keep Tampa Beautiful, part of the Keep America Beautiful networks that strives to inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment, and Friends of the River Walk, a nonprofit organization working in partnership with the City of Tampa to develop, activate and promote Tampa’s downtown waterfront. 

The event is just one of several trash clearings that the Tampa Bohras’ undertake as part of their commitment to Project Rise, a global Dawoodi Bohra initiative to support vulnerable people and conserve, enhance and clear up the natural environment, while raising awareness of the need for sustainable development.
