The Venice Chamber of Commerce will hold its first “Chamber in Action” community event, featuring a “station beautification,” from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6 at the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Station, 12312 Culver Blvd., Del Rey.
Volunteers from the community, as well as local businesses are planning to come together for a day of community service to help give the local police station a much needed facelift. Food and beverages will be provided to volunteers.
Workers will help touch-up the local police station with shelving, lighting, fans, chairs and repairs to crumbling walls and peeling paint.
“This is one way we can give back to one another and at the same time cultivate community connections,” said Donna Lasman, executive director of the Venice Chamber of Commerce.
“Each quarter we will review project proposals and select a chamber business or organization. We then coordinate people to volunteer to help out. Our goal is to improve Venice one business or community area at a time.”
For the LAPD station beautification day, the chamber is looking for donations of: wooden benches, shelving, computers for after-school programs, paints and painting supplies.
