During the last two weeks of June 2018, Love North Richmond (a Love Your Block partner program jointly funded by the City of Richmond and Contra Costa County) completed 5 community beautification projects at 301 Verde Ave, 429 Verde Ave, 648-649 Giaramita St, 1835-1839 4th St, and 308 Market Ave. These projects were led by resident leaders Clarence Gilbert, Ziana James, Karen Garcia, and Driscoll Allen. Over the course of the two weeks, over 90 volunteers joined us to collect 133 bags of trash and green waste weighing almost 7,000 pounds. One new Little Free Library was also installed at the corner of Fred Jackson Way and Market Ave - swing by and grab yourself some books! Help us #LoveYourBlock and #LoveNorthRichmond by keeping it clean!
