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.
We educate communities about the impact of trash on our environment through experiential education (such as cleanups and hands-on activities).
We, Trash Free Earth, are a group of passionate and dedicated volunteers that host educational cleanups to remove trash from public places, including parks, streets, and trails. We are currently focused on two main projects: Elysian Park and Skid Row. We host monthly cleanups at these two locations. Once a month we partner up with other organizations and host trail cleanups together. We also attend and participate in environmental educational events, as well as visit schools to educate students about waste management.
Volunteers will do their community service work in public locations such as parks and trails.
