Whole Foods Market- Bolsa Chica State Beach Clean Up (Kids' Day of Service)
Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project in cooperation with the Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation at Bolsa Chica State Beach!
We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help keep our local beach and oceanfront clean, healthy, and ready for the whole community to enjoy. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 2 and up!
Below, please find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on the day of the project. It's our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for customers, team members, and kids to partner together in service to our community. The best part is being all together!
Also, we'll have a magical build-your-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups, plus all the fixings. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! Please join us for a fun-filled day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together!
Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!

VOLUNTEER JOB DESCRIPTION:
(Ages 2 - 65+)
Beach cleanups are a fun and easy way to volunteer your time by helping to keep our beaches and ocean clean! We provide the bags, hand sanitizer and a gorgeous view, you simply help by picking up trash that doesn't belong on our beach.
SUPPLIES TO BRING IF YOU HAVE THEM:
* Extra work gloves
* Extra buckets
WHAT TO WEAR:
* Old t-shirt
* Layers if it's a cloudy day
SNACKS & HYDRATION:
* Please bring reusable water bottles and water
* Please bring snacks if needed
* We ask that each volunteer bring a signed copy for themselves, and any children, to our project so that we can all stay safe. That form will be available on-site and can also be emailed to you at your request.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking at Bolsa Chica State Beach is free from 8am-10am. Enter between Warner/Seapoint on PCH and turn right once in the park. Look for Tower 21 on the left hand side.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please email Todd.May@wholefoods.com
Can I update my registration information?
Absolutely! Just log back into your registration and make any changes needed.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You can if you like, but we'll also have a check in sheet printed so you can save a tree and not bring your printed ticket if you prefer!
Please Note: PLASTIC BAGS – GLOVES HAVE BEEN PHASED OUT AT SURFRIDER FOUNDATION BEACH CLEANUPS. In an effort to send less trash to the landfill we are asking that beach cleanup volunteers bring their own reusable bucket, reusable bag or a bag(s) from home that you would throw out anyway. Also, please bring work or garden gloves to use rather then then latex/disposable ones if possible. Thanks!
