Community comes together for Van Nuys cleanup

As part of my ongoing effort to take care of the Valley, my staff rolled up their sleeves and helped pick up litter in Van Nuys, on Hartland Street, Vesper Avenue and Hart Street, and along part of Van Nuys Boulevard.


We couldn’t have done it without the hard work of volunteers from Van Nuys High School’s JROTC Cadets and Associated Student Body, CHAMPS Charter High School students, Capt. Lillian Carranza of the LAPD Van Nuys Division, members of the LAPD Van Nuys Division Community Police Advisory Board, students from Birmingham Community Charter High School, and so many other neighbors and friends.


Thanks also to Starbucks and Jack in the Box for keeping the team fed and fueled. Together, we're working toward a cleaner Valley, street by street, block by block.
