Mayor Mensinger And Church Leaders Will Again Help Local Residents Spruce Up Their Homes


On April 30, please join Costa Mesa Mayor Stephen Mensinger along with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Christ Lutheran and Palm Harvest Churches for the second annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors event to assist homes throughout the Costa Mesa community in need of some TLC.

“I’m looking forward to joining my fellow Costa Mesans as we help out our neighbors in times of need,” Mayor Mensinger said. “It’s always impressive how many volunteers answer the call when we ask for help. And this year is no different.”

Once again, no City funds will be used, just good old fashioned community elbow grease and donations.

Last year, Neighbors Helping Neighbors successfully cleaned up two homes, much to the appreciation of the owners. This year, church organizers have identified a number of properties in the community that are in need of assistance and have begun the prep work for painting.

Funds and additional volunteers are still in need for the prepping, painting and clean-up and materials to ensure success.

Those interested in donating and keeping COSTA MESA COOL can email or call or 714-754-5156 to sign up.

Donors so far for this year’s event include:

  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
  • Christ Lutheran Church
  • Palm Harvest Church
  • Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer
  • Council Member Gary Monahan
  • Preface Group
  • Estancia Sports Boosters
  • Skosh M0nahan’s
  • The Harbor Center
  • Vista Paint
  • CR&R
  • Larry’s Building Supply
