Coastal Cleanup Day Packing Party

Our 35th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day is on Saturday, September 21st from 9am-12pm! At last year’s event, 6,800 volunteers removed over 138,000 pounds of litter and debris from 106 sites throughout San Diego! This incredible impact was made possible by volunteers like you at the Packing Party last August, who assembled the supplies for each of those 106 sites in just four days.

In preparation for this year’s cleanup, we are looking for volunteers for our Packing Party to assist in assembling boxes of supplies to make this 35th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day a huge success. Volunteers will report to our office in Liberty Station at 2508 Historic Decatur Road, Suite 150, San Diego, CA 92106.

Tasks include counting and bundling supplies, packing boxes with specific quantities of items, double checking the packed boxes to ensure all of the supplies are there, and helping bring the packed boxes back to our office in the building. Some heavy lifting may be needed, but is not required. Volunteers will sit, stand, bend, and walk. Volunteers aged 14 and up are preferred, as attention to detail and counting are a crucial part of this assembly.

Whether you sign up for a full day or just a few hours, we would love your help! We will offer service forms for those in need, and this opportunity is available for court-ordered hours. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping, please sign up by emailing Carly Keen with the date(s) and time(s) you would like to volunteer at or (619) 704-2774.
