Volunteers needed to help "Clean UH Up"

SAN DIEGO -- The next "Clean UH Up" effort will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 am to noon.

The event, organized by the University Heights Community Association (UHCA), encourages residents and others who care about the neighborhood to come together and spruce up the area.

This Saturday's clean-up will focus on the Washington Street/Lincoln Avenue/Highway 163 area, which is considered by some to be the "gateway to University Heights."

UHCA's Beautification Committee regularly organizes neighborhood clean-up projects in an effort to improve the community, which is north of Hillcrest, and spans from Washington Street to Adams Avenue.

University Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego, with plans to celebrate its 125th anniversary next year.

Those interested in volunteering this Saturday should meet at 9 am on Pascoe Street at Washington, behind the Bridgeview apartment complex. Some tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own. Water, snacks, sunscreen, and raffle prizes will be provided.
