Michael Cooper, owner of Stand On Your Ground, was recognized by Downtown Medford Association at its April 11th Power-Hour meeting.
Michael started Stand On Your Ground Community Cleaning in July 2022 to help pick up trash and other waste left behind by the homeless. He said he now works with 40 businesses downtown on a weekly basis. Cooper said, “I usually get two or three calls a week for new businesses.”
Cooper has been living in Medford since the late 70s.
Cooper hopes to partner with more businesses in the future and perhaps bring on new employees if it keeps growing. He said he just wants to help his community as much as possible.
