An effort of churches, the city of Lynwood and the Lynwood School District to beautify the city will launch on September 22.
Called the Lynwood Commitment, volunteers from across the city will work to beautify Lindbergh Elementary and the surrounding neighborhood as well as clean-up some parks and help senior citizens beautify their homes.
“This is a start to what we believe will become a tradition that reflects the great community support and love of our city,” said Lynwood Mayor José Luis Solache.
There will be an art contest at Lindbergh that will results in students from Lynwood Unified working and developing a mural at the school.
“Lindbergh deserves the attention and I’m pleased we singled out for this first effort,” said Lynwood School Board Member Gary Hardie. “I’m looking forward to getting my hands dirty and doing some work to make my city more beautiful.”
For Pastor Rudy Rubio of the Reformed Church of L.A., the event will be a catalyst for what all the organizers believe will be an ongoing effort to improve the city.
“We see a day where the Lynwood Commitment will involve thousands of people who rightfully take pride in our city,” said Pastor Rudy who reminded that many of the faith organizations in Lynwood are participating in the Lynwood Commitment.
The city will provide a dumpster so that people can drop off their large bulk items.
“We are so pleased to launch this community effort,” said Mayor Solache. “I hope to see many of my friends on the 22nd ready to go to work.”
