I Love A Clean San Diego volunteers,
Thank you all so much for volunteering your time with us at past events! Our 34th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day is on Saturday, September 15th from 9am-12pm! At last year’s event, more than 6,700 volunteers removed over 128,000 pounds of litter and debris from 104 sites throughout the county! This incredible impact was made possible by volunteers like you at the Packing Party last August, who assembled the supplies for each of those 104 sites in five days.
In preparation for this year’s cleanup, we are looking for volunteers for our Packing Party to assist in assembling boxes of supplies to make this Coastal Cleanup Day an even bigger success. Tasks include counting and bundling supplies, packing boxes with specific quantities of items, double checking the packed boxes to ensure all of the supplies are there, and helping bring the packed boxes back to our office in the building. Some heavy lifting may be needed, but is not required. Volunteers will sit, stand, bend, and walk. Volunteers aged 14 and up are preferred, as attention to detail and counting are a crucial part of this weeklong assembly.
Volunteers will report to our office in Liberty Station to help out on the dates and times below:
*Please note that it is possible we will assemble all of the supplies before Friday’s shift, and may have a different task for you in place of the regularly scheduled program.
Whether you sign up for a full day or just a few hours, we would love your help! We will offer service forms for those in need, and this opportunity is available for court-ordered hours. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping, please sign up by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling me at (619) 704-2774 with the date(s) and time(s) you would like to volunteer.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
