What the city doesn’t do, volunteers get done!
Volunteers Cleaning Communities coordinated a clean-up on June 4 in coordination with members of the Dawoodi Bohras mosque in Woodland Hills.
The group picked up trash along Platt and Valley Circle. Team members included volunteers young and old.
The Dawoodi volunteers were led by Board Director Adnan Hamid. Volunteers Cleaning Communities founder Jill Mather directed the group in their yellow vests throughout the cleanup.
With a particular focus on hard work and education, most American Dawoodi Bohras members are regularly involved in local community upliftment projects, and their children are encouraged to be active and engaged citizens. Several children were involved in the June 4 event.
Volunteers Cleaning Communities organizes cleaning events to clean local streets of litter and through the Adopt A Highway Program cleans a three and a half mile section of the 118 Freeway from the on and off ramp of Tampa to the on and off ramp of Balboa on both the north and south sides. They clean illegal dumping sites, abandoned homeless encampments, an adopted section of the LA River (between Owensmouth and Winnetka), Sepulveda Basin (Haskell Creek) and various train tracks.
