The Associated Student Government (ASG) plans to lead a team of students and community members to Logan Heights for the second annual Big Clean-up on Nov. 20.

“The idea is to give back,” said ASG President Beto Vasquez. He described the event as “something from the community, for the community.”

The Big Clean-up started last year in Logan Heights, when volunteers from all over San Diego collected over 16 tons of trash from the community.

“The event was a big success,” said Patrick Namwembe, ASG governmental affairs officer.

This year, a 12-city-block area has been targeted for cleaning. Organizers have asked businesses to donate food, gloves, trash bags, and dumpsters.

All City College students are invited to join the big clean up efforts. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students can earn a certificate for volunteer hours and even earn extra credit from some classes.
