Volunteers show ‘Love’ for Costa Mesa through community service projects

Hundreds of volunteers fanned out across Costa Mesa on Saturday during an inaugural event meant to facilitate a sense of community and service citywide.

Participants in "Love Costa Mesa" — part of the wider "Love Our Cities" campaign — came together to assemble nutrition bags for Orange Coast College students, do campus beautification work at various local schools, help re-establish a dirt trail connecting Estancia High School with others in Fairview Park and write thank-you notes to City Hall employees, among other projects.


The event also featured a kick-off rally and celebratory lunch at Newport Mesa Church.

Trellis, a group of area churches focused on collaborative solutions to pressing local issues, organized the event. Officials hope it will become an annual happening.
