GLENDALE–The Armenian Youth Federation is getting ready for its 2nd Annual Little Armenia Cleanup–this Saturday–September 25–and with registration deadline around the corner–sign up immediately!
The cleanup–co-sponsored by Los Angeles City Councilmember Eric Garcetti’s office–will help remove litter and weed from major streets in Little Armenia. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to gather at the Rose and Alex Pilibos Armenian School–where the clean-up will begin at 8:00 AM.
According to the Los Angeles City Sanitation Department–volunteers cleaned over 23,000 pounds of litter during last year’s cleanup. This year–the AYF hopes to exceed this number with the help of more volunteers.
Those who wish to volunteer should provide their complete name–telephone number–address–and t-shirt size to the organizing committee by emailing AYF@AYFwest.org or call (818) 507-1933. Registered volunteers will be provided a t-shirt–lunch–and water throughout the day.
"We are honored to have a part of Los Angeles named after our homeland," said Vicken Sosikian–Public Affairs Director of the AYF. "Positive feedback received from Little Armenia businesses and residents after the cleanup last year–along with our efforts to expand service to our communities–have led us to make the cleanup an annual effort," explained Sosikian.
