What’s happening

Cleanup along beautiful rural Crow Canyon Road, where MA Center is located. MA Center is partnering with Alameda County for this special project. 


The day starts at 9:30 am in MA Center Parking Lot 12, next to Crow Canyon Road. A tasty vegetarian lunch will be served for volunteers. Check back for more details as the date approaches.


We are inspired by Amma's spontaneous choice to clean a street in Calcutta following one of her programs. Amma's heartfelt action led to her Amala Bharatam Campaign for public health in India, which includes volunteer cleanups of public spaces and parks. A road cleanup is a great way to honor Amma's 64th birthday here in the Bay Area!

Come ready to roll

Wear closed-toed shoes and clothes you can get dirty. If you have a sun hat, work gloves, or a bright-colored safety vest, bring them along. Equipment will be provided.
