LBS Financial Credit Union's 80th Anniversary Celebration Concludes With Largest Coastal Cleanup

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - September 21, 2015) - LBS Financial's 80th anniversary celebration featuring its Summer Series of Kindness has come to a close, capped off by the largest coastal cleanup on the West Coast.

LBS Financial has been serving the Greater Long Beach community for 80 years, and to celebrate this huge milestone, has been giving back all summer long with sponsorships, donations, and volunteer events.

The grand finale to the Summer Series of kindness took place this past Saturday, Sept. 19th on Ocean and Junipero, where LBS Financial joined forces with The Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup to clean up Long Beach's coastline -- in a big way.

The Ocean Conservancy is an international Non-Governmental Organization geared toward protecting the world's waterways through engagement and advocacy.

"LBS Financial is excited to join the Ocean Conservancy's worldwide movement and help improve Long Beach's beautiful coast," said LBS Financial President Jeffrey Napper. "This is an opportunity for us to give back to our Members and work with them to protect our waters and environment. If we all do our part, Long Beach's oceans can be more pristine and vital than ever before."

According to the Ocean Conservancy, more than 560,000 volunteers in 91 countries around the world engaged in the International Coastal Cleanup last year. These volunteers removed over 16 million pounds of trash at beaches and inland waterways.

Last year's International Coastal Cleanup yielded thousands of scavenged items from California's beaches alone. A total of 67,441 people from across the state picked up 1.2 million pounds of polluting items, across 1,836.1 miles of coastline.
