Beverly Kingsley Manor Neighbors Cleaned Up!

Residents of the Beverly Kingsley Manor Neighborhood organized a street cleanup on Monday, celebrating MLK’s birthday with a community day of service to the neighborhood. As we reported last week, the cleanup with listed on the Presidential Inauguration Committee website,  which drew some additional volunteers from around the city.

Tom Ensminger, one of the organizers for the cleanup, told the Buzz that about 35 plus people checked in to help. In addition, the registration on the Presidential Inauguration Committee website helped attract more volunteers from outside the neighborhood.

“We estimated about half of the people who checked in were local to neighborhood and the other 50% traveled from North Hollywood, Santa Monica, Mid City and farther to join us.  Wow!” said Ensminger.

In addition, Ensminger said the organizers got several email reports about people outside the neighborhood participating in their own way.

“So we all would say it was a big success,” said Ensminger.

Organizers told us the volunteers covered about 15 of the neighborhood’s 21 blocks. As a follow up, they have set up an email list to keep residents informed about events and how to use the City’s 311 app. They plan to set a date for another cleanup later this spring, when they are planning to coordinate with LA Sanitation for more equipment and resources. Even though they felt like newbie organizers, they said, they were delighted to get questions from other neighborhoods on how to organize their own cleanups.

Thanks to the organizers for sharing from photos of the event.
