Success! Our March 2021 Beach Clean & Food Drive
Updated: Mar 15, 2021
Thank you to all the volunteers who picked up more than 400 pounds of trash and donated approximately $1200 worth of food for San Diego Food Bank. Special thanks to our sponsors: The Felice Agency - Marketing Advertising Branding PR, Olive Baking Company, Belmont Park, and Residents Alan & Abby Waltz Murray, volunteer Oliver Asis Photography and our co-presenter the Mission Beach Town Council. It was wonderful to see so many high school students, Girl Scout Troops, and residents lending a hand. We appreciate all of you! And a HUGE thank you to KUSI News 10News – ABC San Diego KGTV and CBS 8 - San Diego News for running our story.
Also thanks to Janice Stevens, Jane Williams, Scott Gressard, Ray Steinberger, Andy Chotheri, Sarah Mattinson, the Mission Beach Women's Club, San Diego PD, and of course our friends at SD Parks & Rec.
Last year one resident Cathy Ives collected nearly 120,000 individual pieces of trash last year. She uses the Ocean Conservancy list to track each item. We estimate that our street stewards (there are 6 who clean up day to day) picked up more than 6 tons of trash in 2020.
Special thanks to all of our beach cleanup volunteers! (If we missed anyone [or misspelled your name] please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
