List of supplies that we will need: Glue, Scizzors, paper magazines, books, brushes, markers.Located at Big Sunday office 6111 Melrose Ave, LA CA 90038

Beautify Compton with the Compton Initiative

The primary activity of the Compton Initiative is the quarterly workday, when they match large numbers of volunteers with 20-25 prepared work sites. Each event includes painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, schools, churches and public spaces. With each beautification event, grateful residents marvel as their homes go from dull to vibrant in just a few hours, and astonished students return to freshly painted schools and a new sense of pride. The Compton Initiative is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 with a 40-year commitment to restore the City of Compton by painting homes, schools and churches on quarterly workdays in partnership with individual volunteers and other organizations. They offer community organizations, service groups and non-profits an opportunity to make a sustainable impact in Compton by instilling a sense of care and pride within each neighborhood.
