Boeing's Global Month of Service 

Last month, some very hard-working volunteers from The Boeing Company partnered with our staff and Corpsmembers at our Compton Creek Natural Park site and the neighboring Washington Elementary to help with a variety of projects.

Boeing volunteers helped to trim eight trees and learned about proper tree care from our Community Development Director and Certified Arborist Larry Smith. They also cleared 12,500 square feet of weeds, assisted with much-needed painting projects at the school, planted two trees, and painted a 30' x 25' mural of the United States. Wow!

Many heartfelt thanks to our friends at Boeing for selecting the LA Conservation Corps to be part of their Global Month of Service.

 E-Waste Collection Day with Senator Holly Mitchell  
        
 
 
Earlier this month, Senator Holly Mitchell visited with Corpsmembers at our E-Waste Collection Day, which was held at the Crenshaw Christian Center in South Los Angeles.

We thank Senator Mitchell for spending part of her day with us, for taking the time to get to know our Corpsmembers, and for sharing her background, her plans for the community, and how she achieved her successes.

Chef Roy Choi Supporting Our Youth

Recently, Roy Choi -- celebrity chef behind a host of popular LA dining sensations such as the Kogi food trucks and Pot at the Line Hotel -- tapped the LA Conservation Corps to conduct clean-ups in Watts around the future home of his newest venture called LocoL.

Chef Roy is steadfast in his mission to work with people who are doing good in the community, and as such, he felt strongly about working with us. We thank him for his support, and for tweeting about us to his followers! Woohoo!
