Thank you to ALL our great volunteers who came out bright and early in the morning and stayed through the heat!
More than 60 volunteers checked in at the Laurel Canyon/Webb traffic median cleanup and tree care today.
In addition to our favorite basketball team, the Wildcats, Councilman Tony Cardenas, State Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, People-in-Progress, the Sun Valley Area Neighborhood Council, TreePeople, and Vulcan sent their teams to boost Sun Valley’s pride.
A big thank you to the TreePeople team – Marcos, Pam, Michelle, Julie, Oscar – for showing us how to care for our trees and worked alongside our neighbors. More importantly, Marcos explained how the trees benefited from each step of the “tree pampering” process.
Crown Disposal got there before all of us and delivered the 20 yard roll-off container. Sue and Danny of SV Graffiti Busters were not that much behind Crown when they brought tools that we needed. Sun Valley Equipment let us use the wheel barrels again.
Vulcan’s team – Jose, Art, George – provided water for the critical final step of tree care. We were so glad to see your sweeper out there!
For all the donuts, snacks, fruit, water, Subway sandwiches, we thank Ken & Virginia Beck, Councilman Cardenas, Donut Den, and Waste Management!

With over 80 volunteers along with a number of corporate and community sponsorships the July 24th SVB cleanup on Webb was a huge success! Thank you SVANC for your support, and thank you to everyone person who came from Assemblyman Fuentes’ staff and Councilman Cardenas’ staff. SVB also wants to thank the Sun Valley High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team and LAPD for all their help. And we filled up the 40-yard container that Jerry Prieto from Crown personally delivered, again! Thank you Jerry & Crown crew.
