You’re the best, Best Buy! Our new Adopt-A-Beach volunteers clean up Mission Bay

Today’s blog post comes from our fantastic Community Events intern, Rebecca!


We are happy to announce that the Best Buy in Mission Valley has joined the Adopt-A-Beach program at Mission Bay South Shores! California’s Adopt-A-Beach program gives people of all ages the opportunity to learn about and actively participate in conserving coastal resources.  The Adopt-A-Beach program is I Love A Clean San Diego’s most popular volunteer program.  A statewide program funded by the California Coastal Commission, ILACSD coordinates over 10,000 volunteers annually through the Adopt-A-Beach program.

Best Buy volunteers love getting out and cleaning up Mission Bay. Says sales associate Ivan Gonzalez, “I had a great time at our first beach cleanup event. It was a great feeling helping to make San Diego a beautiful place for everyone including our marine wildlife. I can’t wait for the next event!”
