2023 MLK Day of Service – Restoring Hope by Restoring Sidewalks

2023 MLK Day of Service


Restoring Hope by Restoring Sidewalks  Project



Come help restore the sidewalks in the Westside Santa Fe business district by helping with pressure washing and cleaning up the sidewalks helping to restore pride and hope to those living and shopping in Westside Long Beach.

Join us to make it a “Day On, not a Day Off,” on Monday, January 16th as part of the MLK National Day of Service in Long Beach.

The Need We Serve:

The sidewalks of Westside Long Beach are extremely dirty and do not
provide a clean environment for people on the Westside to be able to use. Helping to clean these sidewalks is helping to restore hope and dignity to those living on the Westside of Long Beach.



How to Serve:

We need some people to help with pressure washing the sidewalks, while others help remove trash and debris from the sidewalks on Santa Fe Avenue.

If you are interested in helping, sign up here:
