Commemorative Brick Campaign
Your brick makes our parks tick! All proceeds from the Commemorative Brick Campaign go directly into funding ongoing maintenance and upgrades of our local parks. You will take pride in seeing your personalized brick in place in the park, as well as improved landscaping, replacement of play equipment, and added amenities that were the direct result of your donation.
Community Clean Up
Avalon's natural beauty is unparalleled. In partnership with the Avalon Rotary Club, the department sponsors a monthly community clean up day to help keep our town clean. Meet at Avalon Kid's Park at 9 a.m. Please bring your own gloves. The City will provide trash bags and some tools.
2023 Scheduled Clean Up Days Coming Soon!
Contact the Community Services Department for more information.
Meals on Wheels
Thanks in large part to a dedicated volunteer base, and the support of our local restaurants, the Community Services Department oversees daily delivery of meals to a treasured part of community. Contact the Community Services Department to determine the eligibility standards for this program, or to sign up to be a volunteer.
