Volunteers from the World Mission Society Church of God in Hollywood held a community cleanup and beautification event on Jan. 23 in the Melrose Hill neighborhoods.
Prior to the event, volunteers gathered at the Lemon Grove Recreation Center and received a certificate of recognition from the office of Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District. The cleanup occurred along streets between Santa Monica Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, and Oxford and Normandie avenues. Volunteers concentrated on areas around the Hollywood (101) Freeway where large amounts of trash had accumulated and filled a 900-cubic-foot dumpster provided by L.A. Sanitation.
The goal of the cleanup was to share community cohesiveness in the midst of the latest wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The volunteers hoped to inspire others to take pride in their neighborhoods and continue working to beautify the city.
The World Mission Society Church of God is located at 1528 N. Vermont Ave. For information, visit lawmscog.com.
