Thank You to 120+ Volunteers for a Successful Make A Difference Day!


The City of Daly City extends its sincere thanks to all 120+ volunteers that came out on Saturday, October 27, to “make a difference” in their communities. Volunteers engaged in cleanups in six different locations, planted over 30 native trees and shrubs at the site of a new mini park in the Bayshore neighborhood, collected e-waste (and prevented it from reaching the landfill) from 200+ residents and held special hours at Pat’s Closet to provide free home goods and clothing for residents in need! The Daly City Host Lions Club also volunteered to provide a lunch at City Hall for everyone that spent the morning improving Daly City. This was the 20th consecutive year that the City has participated in Make A Difference Day and it was certainly one to remember.

Check out the Make A Difference Day photo album here.

You'll see volunteers in action at cleanups in Southern Hills, Crocker, Village in the Park, around the Franciscan, Westlake Park and Top of the Hill! You’ll also see over 50 people working to transform a piece land that was previously covered in invasive weeds into a fledgling native forest.

The City wants to keep these important partnerships with community members going strong! We will be planting hundreds of additional native plants in coming months and would love to have more people involved. The City is also happy to support any cleanup groups that want to pursue ongoing opportunities to help keep their neighborhoods clean. We’ll provide all the supplies you need.
