Old Town San Diego Holds Successful Clean Up Event

| April 3, 2023 | 0 Comments

On Saturday, March 25, the Old Town San Diego Chamber of Commerce and CalTrans, with the support of the Mormon Battalion Historic Site, organized the Old Town San Diego Clean Up event. Volunteers from across the city gathered to clean up and beautify public spaces, with tasks ranging from collecting litter to trimming tree branches and pulling weeds.

Over 60 volunteers turned out on the bright Saturday morning. Together, they collected over 180 bags of trash. “It is remarkable to see how much litter we were able to collect,” said Patricia Fillet, Old Town resident and volunteer. “It’s amazing what is possible when so many people come together.”

Among the volunteers was a large contingent from the Church of Latter Day Saints. “It was wonderful to be here amongst the good people of Old Town,” said Elder Mueller. “Our elders and sisters love the gift of service.”

The energy and enthusiasm of the volunteers were contagious, and soon passersby were stopping to offer their help and support. Together, the community members worked to beautify the area and make it a more enjoyable place for everyone to visit. By the end of the day, the participants felt a sense of pride and satisfaction in their work. They had made a significant difference in the appearance of the area, and they had done it together.

The organizers would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the volunteers who came out to support the Old Town San Diego Clean Up event. It was inspiring to see so many people give their time and effort to help make the community a better place. Your dedication and hard work have made a real difference in the appearance of the area, and we are grateful for your support.

“CalTrans is proud to partner with so many wonderful volunteers,” said Diana Espina, CalTrans Facilities and Motorpool Manager. “Supporting and strengthening our communities is what it is all about.”

60 plus volunteers were on site this past March to remove debris, trash, dead plants, weeds and other unwanted items from Old Town San Diego.
