For their initial project, our new Young Professionals (YP) group organized club volunteers to participate in Sharefest’s 16th Annual Workday, a community-building service day to beautify and provide tangible needs at schools, churches and non-profit organizations throughout the South Bay and L.A. Harbor area.
On Sat., April 28th, 12 of our members volunteered their time to support a waterfront beautification effort for San Pedro’s AltaSea, a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating collaboration in oceanic and aquaculture sciences, as well as incubating new ocean-related education programs to inspire the next generation for a more sustainable ocean. Our club members worked beside other local volunteers to help build and paint picnic tables, flower planters, and park benches that will provide school groups with a place to sit and enjoy the wharf while learning about AltaSea’s mission. In addition, our club donated $1000 to Sharefest to help cover project expenses.
