I started cleaning up around the Target on San Fernando Mission and Balboa. Count so far is two bags. This morning I also branched out to the liquor store across the street. We have some homeless there so it tends to get messy not to mention it’s a high traffic area.
Hope you have a great time and safe travels. Don’t worry about things here we’ll keep the momentum alive.
Thank you. Just came back from filling up 3 bags from the bridge at the 118. Wow, so much trash down there. Probably be another 10 to 15 more filled bags. Crazy.
I haven’t been able to join the clean ups since the day I helped at the LA River several weeks ago. I really do enjoy reading your updates and I’m always disappointed when I’m not able to participate, but at the same time, I’m encouraged by your determination to go out on your “non-event“ days and just pick up trash on your walks.
So, because of that, I have been inspired and motivated to pick up trash in my neighborhood while walking my Goldendoodle, Mabel. Today, I invited my best friend Crystal and her Goldendoodle, Moose, (sibling to Mabel) to join me in picking up trash on Devonshire from Wilber to Tampa and we filled 4 kitchen size trash bags. On my walk back home I pickup up another bag full on the backside of Nobel Middle school, as well as part of Wilbur. It was very satisfying and I felt such a relief to finally see my streets litter-free!!
I know that I have the choice to make a difference in my immediate community, any time and any day. So, I’ve made it my personal goal and purpose to continue doing that with different friends on different days. Thanks for your weekly/daily determination and inspiration that is contagious! I do hope to join you again soon!!
Blessings, Mary Girgis
Diana and I finished Balboa from Citronia to Plummer this morning. We filled just over 2 bags. Also cleaned the drain halfway between the 2 streets.
"There is so much illegal dumping on Gault Street but today I was there when the LA conservation corps stopped to pick up the six chairs I reported earlier in the week.
They allowed me to add the black cabinet that was disassembled and they took one of my trash bags that was crawling with ants.
After they left I found some more illegal dumping behind a large bush and put it out in the street and created a service request.
I cleaned up the rest of the street and I hung the VCC sign on the school fence. It looks so small. I might move it down a little bit but it’s there now."
