The Department of Public Works (DPW) is inviting San Francisco residents to come out and celebrate Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rabbit by volunteering to clean and green San Francisco through its premier city volunteer program, the Community Clean Team program.
Volunteers are needed to help beautify and cleanup neighborhoods throughout Chinatown, North Beach, the Presidio, Cow Hollow, the Marina and other locations. They will be engaging in fun activities that include mural painting, gardening, tree planting, graffiti removal, and more in order to help beautify the City’s busy streets and vibrant neighborhoods during Chinese New Year activities. A celebratory lunch will be available for volunteers after the work, as well as a performance by Chinese Lion Dancers, fireworks, and children’s activities.
DPW is putting out a call for volunteers to meet at the North Ping Yuen Housing Development (838 Pacific Avenue at Stockton) Saturday, February 12, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Mayor Ed Lee, the creator of Community Clean Team, is expected to speak along with other partners, agencies and members of the community.
DPW’s Clean Team partners in the Districts Two and Three events include Mayor Ed Lee, President of the Board, David Chiu, Supervisor Mark Farrell, the Hilton, Emerald Fund, Walgreens, Luxor Cabs, Recology, Clean City Coalition, San Francisco Housing Authority, Chinatown Community Development Center, GotGraffiti?, Mission Neighborhood Centers, Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Chinatown CDC, SF Environment, San Francisco Parks Trust, SF Unified School District, Recreation and Parks Department, Pre-Trial Diversion Project, La Tierra, and Middle Polk Neighborhood Association.
