Old Oakland Neighbors  wants to strengthen our neighborhood identity, clean up our streets and do our part to divert litter from clogging our storm drains and polluting the bay.  How? We want to cover our ugly trash can enclosures with beautiful mosaics featuring local birds and plants.  But we can’t do it alone.

With your help we can transform Old Oakland’s ugly trash cans into neighborhood treasures.  When more people notice our beautiful new trash cans, more people will use them.

We have received some generous grant funding and we have some dedicated volunteers to get us started, but we need support from people like you to scale our efforts.  We have completed 19 Old Oakland mosaic cans so far, and have recently expanded our scope  to include Lafayette Square Park. We hope to cover all the cans in the neighborhood, but we will only be able to proceed as funds are raised. 

Help beautify Old Oakland by making a tax-deductible donation today. Any amount you can donate will make a big difference.  So pledge your support today!
