Earth Day is Everyday. Plus, you're invited to celebrate a big Birthday!
Hey friends! We're almost through May but that doesn't mean we can't continue implementing zero waste practices.
These are not new ideas. This not a trend. Caring for our Earth is here to stay! Please keep recycling, up-cycling, sharing, reducing and reusing.
Skip the straws and say No to single-use plastics! Even the smallest effort makes a big difference. Join OKC - and together - let's make sure Earth Day really is everyday!
WEAR YOUR DANCING SHOES!
May is my birthday month! Did you know that for the last 20 years I have been raising awareness and fundraising instead of celebrating with a traditional party?
In keeping with this tradition, the OKC is hosting a huge dance party FUNdraising event for my 48th, aka: forty grEIGHT, birthday!
With the pandemic shutting down our fun the last couple of years, we are ready to get back together and celebrate in-person!
Our goal is to raise $48,000 which will allow us - in partnership with Cal Recycles who is purchasing us an electric truck and trailer - to outfit our disaster relief rig with the necessary equipment to provide disaster relief and facilitate community engagement through education at the local level. The items we need to purchase are: refrigeration, solar, generators, stove/grill, etc. As you can imagine, this is incredibly costly. But the impact, when complete, will be HUGE!
That said... join us on Saturday May 28th here at our main kitchen: 3302 Senior Center Dr. Oceanside, CA 92056
