The San Francisco Department of Public Works is asking neighborhood residents to "Love Our City!" with its annual day of beautification on Saturday, Jan 28.

There will be 8 to 12 worksites across District 11 where volunteers will garden, add mulch, pick up litter or remove graffiti depending on the desires of community groups.

Volunteers can register between 8:30 and 9 a.m. at Balboa High School. Afterward, volunteers and DPW employees will go to their assigned work sites. After three hours, everyone will return to Balboa High School.

Organizers advise volunteers to dress in layers, wear closed toe shoes and sunscreen and bring a reusable water bottle.

The San Francisco Department of Public Works, the Office of District 11 Supervisor Ahsha Safai, the San Francisco Unified School District and the Merced Extension Triangle Neighborhood Association.
