Normal Heights is an awesome old neighborhood in San Diego. Presently it is starved in certain pockets, particularly south of Adams Avenue, which is lined with trendy cafes and shops. Riptide Students are going to join hundreds of other students in San Diego to a day helping many underprivileged youth and learn how to live out faith in action. This 24-Hour Big Day of Serving will include the following projects:
- Cleanup and Landscaping at Ward Park and at the Adams Rec Center
- Trash and Graffiti Removal in the surrounding neighborhoods
- Restoration of the canyon in the area to include pulling exotic plants and/or planting native plants.
We will begin the weekend with some team building and spending the night at a church in the area. Then we will wake up early the next morning and serve like crazy! After serving and working all day, we will celebrate by hosting a neighborhood after party that will be held at Ward Canyon Neighborhood Park. Sign-ups begin this Sunday! To reserve your middle schooler’s spot you can bring $45 (which covers: project supplies, dinner, breakfast, lunch, t-shirt, and lodging) to any Riptide service beginning September 18th and fill out our online medical release form here.
