The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Litter-free Long Beach Program is designed to expand awareness of the impacts of litter, build community pride, and develop support and participation in keeping Long Beach litter-free.
Litter-free LB began in 2005 as a multi-faceted program to get all stake-holders involved in the City’s litter issue. A General Awareness campaign was developed consisting of:
Bus Shelter Posters
No Advertising" Doorhangers
Volunteer at, or Plan a Litter Clean-Up Event
More than 147 tons of litter and debris are collected annually by volunteers. LB organizations are encouraged to post their clean-up events here and residents are encouraged to check back often to participate.
Long Beach Businesses and Organizations Can Volunteer as a Group
Group volunteering at a Long Beach clean-up event is a great activity for business owners, managers and employees to come together and foster a team spirit. Most events are early Saturday mornings.
Create your own litter clean-up event near your business. We can help.
Check out on Youtube our most recent cleanups.
For more information on additional volunteer opportunities add our sister group, LB Young Philanthropist to get connected to all the volunteer opportunities in the City of Long Beach!

Had a great time at the cleanup. We had over 5 groups come to help and contribute to the cleanup. Its a beautiful thing seeing the community work side by side making the neighborhood a cleaner and safer place to live.
