Meet the Clean Team: David Phillip

This April, the Initiative continues its monthly series featuring members of the Initiative’s Clean Team.  The Clean Team is made up of 6 team members and several supervisors who work for ACE, our Clean Team partner.  Most readers recognize our Clean Team from their distinctive sapphire blue SoHo Broadway t-shirts.  The goal of this series is to introduce the SoHo Broadway Community to the men who work tirelessly each day to keep the SoHo Broadway corridor looking its best.

Meet Clean Team Member David Phillip

David Phillip is the newest member of the Initiative’s Clean Team. David was born and grew up in New York City. David works in the Special Project Coordinator Clean Team role on Mondays and Tuesdays where he can be found painting over graffiti, cleaning out bus stops or maintaining the Initiative’s 30 trash receptacles, among other duties. On his other 3 work days, David can be found sweeping the sidewalk and emptying the District’s trash receptacles. David is one of the more enthusiastic members of the Clean Team and we are thrilled that David has joined the Team.

On March 25, 2016, David joined the Initiative’s Executive Director, Mark Dicus, for lunch.
