Beautify Chula Vista, the popular neighborhood clean-up event that attracts hundreds of dedicated volunteers, is in need of sponsorship support. This year’s sixth annual event, hosted by Mayor Cheryl Cox and the Chula Vista City Council, in collaboration with I Love a Clean San Diego and Allied Waste Services, is scheduled for Saturday, October 4, 2008 from 8 a.m. to noon.
Sponsorship support of in-kind donations or monetary contributions is vital to the success of the community clean-up effort. Beautify Chula Vista is a program that highlights and promotes neighborhood revitalization. Teams of volunteers are assigned to paint out graffiti, clear brush, plant trees, stencil storm drains and pick up trash along city streets. More than 1,000 volunteers are expected to turn out for this year’s event in western Chula Vista. The kick-off location is Otay Park, 1613 Albany Avenue.
Organizers are looking for sponsors to help provide T-shirts, and breakfast and lunch for all volunteers. Names of sponsors will appear on T-shirts, a banner and in news releases to local media.
For sponsorship information, please email Jennifer Quijano in the Mayor and Council Offices at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (619) 691-5044. More information about how to volunteer will be available soon at www.beautifychulavista.org.
