Hi my name is Jill Mather, president and organizer for Volunteers Cleaning Communities.
We are a community-based organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, cleaner, environmental friendly, litter-free place.
With the help of amazing community volunteers, we organize cleaning events to clean our local streets of litter and through the Adopt A Highway Program we clean a 3 1/2 mile section of the 118 Freeway from the on and off ramp of Tampa to the on and off ramp of Balboa both the north and south sides.
We have adopted the LA River between Owensmouth and Winnetka that we clean as well.
We clean abandoned homeless sites and work with active encampments to reduce their trash and make them cleaner for the community.
We have a program called Adopt1Street where individuals can adopt a block and keep it clean - then we notify the city of how many community members are assisting in the beautification of their community.
