HUGE WEEKEND OF SANDY RELIEF!
Project 11561 and many sponsors help put together an awesome cleanup effort in the spirit of Earth Day this weekend April 19th – 21st. Asking anyone and everyone to help give a hand, get out and cleanup our town which we all love so much. There will be five stations located around town where people can come to pick up trash bags and plastic gloves, go out and clean up, and then drop garbage back off. The stations are Clark Street Park, Pacific Park, Kennedy Plaza, Sherman Brown Park, and Georgia Park.
As a part of the cleanup we will have trash scavenger hunts for children to complete. Trash Hunt lists will be available before Saturday on the Project 111561 Facebook Page:
The Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut is currently running a rubber duck donation campaign. They are asking for rubber ducks that they can give out to the students in an effort to put a smile on the faces of these children who have been through so much. Any child who comes back to one of the stations with a completed scavenger hunt will receive a LB surfer duck that they can sign and that will then be sent to Newtown. Parents of these kids and others who bring back bags of garbage will receive a coupon for three free raffle tickets at the Swingbellys “Pay It Forward” Event that will be held later that day.
Earth Day: Cleanup the Canals in Long Beach
Central LI Surfrider has organized a cleanup of the water in the canals for Saturday April 20th as well. Volunteers should meet at the Heron St. Canal at 9 a.m. Volunteers can help clean up from land or bring wetsuits/kayaks/surfboards/ and help from the water. Great job Marvin, Larry, and Kelly putting this together.
SKUDIN SURF WILL BE PROVIDING EXTRA WETSUITS AND SURFBOARDS FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GET IN THE WATER AND GIVE A HAND!
LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS AWESOME WEEKEND THAT SO MANY IN OUR COMMUNITY CAME TOGETHER TO HELP BRING LONG BEACH BACK BETTER THAN EVER!
