October 12 - Gina Greblo and Jill Mather @ Hillel at UCLA
Jill Mather: Jill Mather is a dedicated community leader on a mission to transform the mindset of littering in America, starting with the San Fernando Valley. As the founder of the 501c3 organization Volunteers Cleaning Communities, she has established a range of impactful programs such as "Adopt 1 Street," "Litter Scavenger Hunt Program," "Environmental Awareness Day," and "Earth Day Event" to engage community members in environmental stewardship. Jill is also a passionate advocate for positive change in her Chatsworth, California, hometown. She serves in various leadership roles, including President of Diamondhead HOA, Secretary of Chatsworth Neighborhood Council, and active membership in several chambers and community organizations.

Gina Greblo: Gina Greblo, a proud Los Angeles native, possesses a love for the city's natural beauty and a strong commitment to its preservation. Six months ago, she took a stand against the litter plaguing LA streets, starting with a single recycled grocery bag and quickly upgrading to a farmer's market rolling cart, clearing numerous bags of debris. Gina's concern for the environment grew as she documented her cleanup efforts on Nextdoor, transforming her personal mission into a citywide movement. Through her dedicated leadership, she's inspired individuals from girl scouts to retirees to join her in monthly cleanups, fostering a powerful force for change. Beyond litter removal, Gina has fostered genuine community bonds among business owners and cleanup volunteers who say they come for the cleanups but they return for the sense of community she nurtures. Gina isn't just a guardian of Los Angeles' natural beauty; she's a catalyst for the vibrant communities that make the city truly special.
