The Mayor’s Office would like eventually to have four such events every year. The day will likely cost $40,000, most of which is going toward free lunches for volunteers. The money is being raised mostly from corporate and union donors, Frank said. Villaraigosa will travel to all six sites, arriving about 10 a.m. at North Hollywood High School, 5231 Colfax Ave. Councilman Tom LaBonge also plans to attend the North Hollywood event. “It’s a very difficult task to maintain the school sites,” LaBonge said. “It does make an absolute difference when a campus is pristine and cared for.” Dan Laidman, (213) 978-0390 [email protected] For information on Day of Service with Our Youth, call (213) 978-0811 or see www.lacity.org/mayor/dayofservice/index.html. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

North Hollywood High School will be one of the host sites for Saturday’s Day of Service with Our Youth, a community event marking Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s 100th day in office. Volunteers will gather at six schools across the city to sweep streets, alleys and buildings, plant trees, remove graffiti and generally clean the campuses and surrounding areas. Modeled after a program that started in Villaraigosa’s former council district, the event is meant to strengthen ties between the city and local schools, said Larry Frank, deputy mayor for neighborhood and community services. “We really truly want to align whatever the city can bring to the table with our schools,” Frank said. last_img read more
