PickITup Chinatown

Sunday, March 12 2017

OCA-East Bay will be continuing with our FIFTH Pickitup Chinatown on Sunday, March 12th, 2017 11am-2pm.

Each time, on the second Sunday of each month, we've been able to mobilize 40-50 volunteers and take several pounds of waste out of our sidewalks, streets and parks. The goal of this effort is to promote civic participation through feeling ownership of the neighborhood and hope to cultivate new leaders and advocates.

Meetup spot is in front of T4, 1068 Webster. If you're under 18 you will need to bring a parent-signed consent form. We will be able to sign off on volunteer hours.

Shoutout to the organizations that have been participating in PickITup Chinatown:
- Alameda High School LEOS
- Asian Americans for Community Outreach
- Asian Youth Services Committee
- Berkeley City College Lions Club
- BuildOn at Oakland High School
- Chinese Community United Methodist Church
As well as the individual supporters who saw our social media postings and wanted to help.

Special shotuout to the Moon Family (Michael, May and Gavin) who have taken time to coordinate this effort for several months, along with the sponsors:
- City Councilmember Abel Guillen
