‘Green Your Holidays with Guidance Green’ is Back!

For the third consecutive year, our environmental committee, Guidance Green, is inviting So Cal neighbors to green their holidays by joining us in donating gently-used items to charities. In doing so, we will bring some holiday cheer to people in need while helping to keep these still useful items form ending up prematurely at the local landfill.

Gently-used clothing, accessories and shoes, as well as brand new toys, will be donated to the Venice Homeless Shelter. This year, we are also collecting new and gently-used jackets, coats, warm socks, hats, scarves, gloves and warm pajamas for children 0 to 10 years old to donate to the Kozy Klothes for Kids organization.

Items can be dropped off at Guidance’s headquarters – 4134 Del Rey Avenue in Marina del Rey, CA. We will be accepting donations until Friday, December 10, allowing us to deliver these to both charities in time for the holidays.

Guidance Green helps restore beauty to a local beach

Guidance Green Beach CleanupThe Guidance Green team strikes again! For the fourth consecutive year, the Guidance Green team helped to clean up the beaches in Southern California. For a second time, we returned to Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey on Sunday, November 14th.

Here are some of our stats from our cleanup:

  • We collected over 10 pounds of trash

  • The most common piece of trash was bottle tops

  • We even found a golf ball!

After our busy morning we relaxed and enjoyed the California sun while enjoying BBQ hot dogs.

Check out pictures of our beach cleanup on our Facebook page.

We’ll keep you posted on our next beach cleanup. We hope to see you there!
