Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Shoreline Cleanup
1/14/2017 5:00:00 PM UTC - 1/14/2017 8:00:00 PM UTC
Main St. near Navy Way, Alameda, CA 94501, California, 94501

Saturday, January 14, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, Alameda Point Partners will be jointly hosting a shoreline cleanup with the City of Alameda Public Works Department’s Clean Water Program. The event will focus on removing litter from the shore and parking lot along the estuary, west of the Main Street Dog Park.  Local Bay Area advocacy group, San Francisco Baykeeper, will also be on-site to educate the public about the importance of keeping our water free from plastic litter and debris.

If you would like to participate in the Shoreline Cleanup event, please pre-register at https://alamedacleanup2017.eventbrite.com. Volunteers are asked to wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring their own reusable bucket or bag and work gloves. Large groups are encouraged; please reach out to Rachel Campos de Ivanov (contact information below) for details. Attendees under the age of 18 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. 


This is the second year Alameda Point Partners has collaborated with the City of Alameda for this clean water focused community activity. Last year’s event attracted more than 175 attendees who collected over a half ton of trash. With miles of shoreline, Alameda has a special opportunity to help keep our waterways clean, protecting fish, wildlife, and aquatic habitats. Participating in the community cleanup is a great way to help prevent bay and ocean pollution, meet your neighbors, and show community support. Service credit is available upon request.


The City of Alameda Public Works Department’s Clean Water Program fosters an appreciation of the local environment, inspiring people to do their part to prevent storm water runoff and litter pollution during everyday activities.

2nd Annual Veterans Job & Resource Fair
In honor of Veterans Day 2017, the USS Hornet Museum is hosting a 2nd Annual Job & Resource Fair for veterans, military families and active military soon to be transitioning to civilian jobs. This event is an opportunity to meet face-to-face with top Bay Area companies from a cross-section of industries ready to hire. Even if you are not familiar with a company or hiring agency, still visit their booth as they may have the right job waiting for you at their corporate office despite being, for example, a retail company. Visit our website before the big day to see which employers are participating. Bring copies of your resume, pens and confirmation of your registration. Come ready to be interviewed. Registering is important for faster on-boarding and to give us an accurate head count for refreshments and supplies. Your registration provides an opportunity to tour the ship in between seeing recruiters, as well as admission on Saturday, November 11th for Veterans Day. Due to security reasons, please do not bring large bags or backpacks if at all possible with you. Please share this opportunity with other veterans and military spouses you know looking for work. Thank you. FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? I.D. required to match name on registration. Bring your military card or form DD214 (if you still have it), just in case an employer or service provider asks. You may register at the door but we strongly encourage advance registration so we know you are attending. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Free parking lot in front of the ship, including many handicap stalls. There will be a free shuttle from the College of Alameda to the ship. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Outreach@uss-hornet.org. For more information about the museum, visit www.uss-hornet.org. Dress code? If at all possible, dress professionally as if going on an interview. If planning to explore other parts of the ship beyond the Hangar Deck, we discourage wearing open toe shoes for your safety as reaching those decks or levels will require using a ladder. Is there a free shuttle? Yes! Michael's Transportation (one of the employers participating) will run a free shuttle on a continuous loop between the Admin Building of the College of Alameda to the Hornet and back again. This location is near the corner of Webster Street and Atlantic Avenue, a major stop for buses in Alameda.
