Community Service Opps

Here are some opportunities from I Love a Clean San Diego:

Clean Canyons for a Clean Coast Cleanup
Saturday, November 8th from 9AM - 12noon
Meet at the Valencia Park Malcolm X Library parking lot
5148 Market Street, San Diego 92114

I Love A Clean San Diego and City of San Diego Open Space Division with support from Allied Waste Services have joined forces to tackle the litter and illegal dumping plaguing San Diego's canyons. Join in with friends, family, coworkers, or clubs and organizations to beautify this open space area and surrounding community in need of volunteers. All supplies will be provided at no charge, but remember to wear work clothes and sturdy closed toed shoes, and bring extra water. For more information, you can visit ILACSD's website or contact Natalie Roberts via email, or call (619) 291-0103 ext. 3014. We would appreciate RSVP's if you plan to volunteer, especially with a large group. Walk-on's will be accepted, but everyone must sign a waiver and anyone under 18 will need a parent/guardian signature to volunteer. Click here to print out the waiver to bring to the cleanup.

Tijuana Watershed Cleanup
Saturday, December 6th from 9 - 11AM
2200 Enright Drive at the intersection of Beyer Blvd and Enright Dr, San Ysidro 92173

I Love A Clean San Diego and City of San Diego - Think Blue with support from Allied Waste Services are emphasizing the need for more inland cleanups in an effort to protect San Diego County's watershed as a whole. Many of these areas act as a catch basin for litter from the surrounding neighborhoods and busy streets, as well as suffer from illegal dumping. Join us in cleaning up the Tijuana Watershed to prevent trash and debris from contaminating popular connecting beaches such as Imperial Beach where many South Bay residents swim, surf and play.

Volunteers should wear closed toed sturdy shoes and bring extra water. All supplies will be provided. Please check in at registration upon arrival to hand in a signed waiver or fill one out on-site. Minors under 18 will need a parent/guardian signature on their waiver. To sign up as a volunteer or find out more, contact ILACSD's Volunteer Department at 619-291-0103 or
