Operation Clean Slate is a nonprofit organization in Orange County, CA, dedicated to assisting youth with positive alternatives to graffiti. Working with schools and community groups, Clean Slate takes a proactive approach to reducing gangs and graffiti. Beautiful murals, both large and small, are produced by young people, creating a sense of pride in their schools, neighborhoods, and in their artistic skills.

Through their volunteer consulting with Clean Slate, longtime Earth Links supporters Julie and Ken Maloney made us aware of Clean Slate’s need for donation of a color printer to better showcase successful murals done by school children. Over the years Earth Links has found many other ways to support Clean Slate, including the donation of paintbrushes and other materials Earth Links received from donors.
