Chamber in Action Pop-up Cleaning Crew on Washington Boulevard this weekend
By Staff Writer
Volunteers are needed for pop-up cleaning crew in Venice this weekend.
This event is a part of the Chamber in Action Committee’s (CIA) Pop-Up Cleaning Crew initiative in which the committee and volunteers visit different areas around Venice to pick up trash and help take care of the community.
This weekend’s event will take place on Saturday, February 20 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Washington Boulevard between Abbot Kinney and Lincoln. T-shirts will be given to volunteers who have attended two or more clean ups and free coffee will be available for all after the cleanup.
According to the Chamber, there is limited space due to safety protocols.
To sign up – email Brennan Lindner, CIA Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lindner, a Venice resident since 2007, was driven to start the pop up crews after noticing an accumulation of trash around Venice in recent months. Finding this unacceptable, and with a little more time on his hands since his company Generic Events had to pivot to the virtual world, he decided it was time to take charge rather than wait for the City to do something. “It’s a great way for stakeholders to be active in their community and make a direct impact where you can immediately see results,” said Lindner.
