Coastal Cleanup Day 2018

Coastal Cleanup Day 2018 was a huge success! Below are some photos and words from our Christian Action Ministry’s John Readyhoff:

Dear Neighborhood Church Congregation, Christian Action Ministry, Co-Captains and Coastal Clean up volunteers…

Hi All, 

Wow what a great day today at Rat Beach! !This Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday 15th September went way beyond expectations--it was quite simply a mind-blowing success!

First of all I thank you Neighborhood Church CAM Team for making it a success and the support from Heal the Bay Co-Captains and the City of Palos Verdes Estates.  None of it would have been possible without you. 

We had an incredible turn out and lots of trash was collected. Over 500 people took part in the Beach Cleanup, including 300 from the Buddhist Monastery in Hacienda Heights and 50 Girl Scouts! Together, we collected more than 120 pounds of all sorts of trash that doesn’t belong in our oceans and waterways, including a car tire.

Thank you to everyone who came out and showed just how much they care for their creeks and their beaches and their favorite parks.

About Coastal Cleanup Day: Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual Los Angeles County event sponsored by the Heal the Bay Foundation. Together, volunteers across LA County come together to clean up our beaches and remove trash and debris from our sands and shores. For several years, the Neighborhood Church Christian Action Ministry has co-sponsored the Malaga Cove/RAT Beach Cleanup, providing volunteers and administrative support to help facilitate the event.
