Youth FundraisingCity Trash & Recycling

Looking Good Santa Barbara’s Youth Fundraising Program gives local kids the opportunity to participate in a neighborhood clean-up and earn funds toward their program at the same time.  Participating groups are provided with clean-up equipment and assigned to a neighborhood for three hours to clean up litter and remove graffiti. Events are normally held on Saturdays from 9am-12pm.
A payment of $20 per participant will be donated to the organization, from a minimum of ten participants to a maximum of 20 (earning potential is $200-$400).  Larger groups will still receive equipment and supplies, but no additional funds.  Supervision of students is the responsibility of each group.
All groups must provide the following:

  1. Certificate of Insurance & Endorsement additionally insuring the City of Santa Barbara for one million dollars in general liability.  This document is due one week before the event.
  2. A Hold Harmless Form must be signed and provided for every person participating in the event (including adult supervisors).  These forms are due on the day of the event. 
  3. A Letter of Understanding signed by an official of your organization agreeing to the terms of the program.  This document is due 1 week before the event.

To schedule a clean-up date, call LGSB at 564-5669 or e-mail Lorraine Cruz-Carpenter at
