 MADCAPS has been busy of late helping the Point Loma Association’s Mean Green Team doing community service work beautifying and cleaning up up Shelter Island and Liberty Station.

MADCAPS is an acronym for Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies. According to sdmadcaps.org, the organization’s purpose is "to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations.”

It seems only right that one philanthropic organization, MADCAPS, has come to the aid of another, the nonprofit Point Loma Association (pointloma.org), in assisting PLA’s Mean Green Team in performing numerous landscaping tasks.

Those tasks include maintaining 20 public green spaces in Point Loma, transforming asphalt and concrete medians and parkways into landscaped islands of natural beauty, and installing community signs, lights, landmarks, benches, and banners. The Mean Green Team also creates a patchwork of public art through utility box art, murals, and sculptures, along with picking up litter, cleaning up homeless camps, and removing graffiti, while advocating for improving the quality of life.

“We joined forces with the PLA in Point Loma because our missions are similar,” said MADCAPS president Judy Adelizzi Parker. “For them it’s beautification. For us, it’s doing something philanthropy-focused for the benefit of our community. Service volunteer work is what we do.”

These days, Adelizzi Parker noted there is no shortage of philanthropic aims to pursue such as supporting social justice and protecting the environment. “Homelessness is a major issue, a huge concern here in San Diego,” she said adding, “That’s where one of our collaborative efforts with the PLA came into play, because there were encampments in Liberty Station, and cleaning up those encampments led us to help out in cleaning up elsewhere.”

Linda Weber, PLA’s liaison to MADCAPS, said her nonprofit has been thrilled to link up with their philanthropic-friendly group to do essential public service work.

“We’ve been doing projects together with MADCAPS since March or April, once we got the OK from the City to start our Mean Green Team again after the pandemic,” Weber said. “We were able, working with City Councilmember Jen Campbell, to get the City to allow us to participate in health and safety efforts, which made sense working in the medians and side road areas picking up trash and trimming bushes out of the way. We do a lot of things besides beautification that you could certainly call health and safety measures.”

Weber said MADCAPS reached out to PLA “wanting to do something outside. We were interested in having them help to further beautify areas, but the Mean Green Team works on Friday mornings, and MADCAP’s girls were still in school then.”

So Weber said they compromised and MADCAPS began joining the PLA in doing Saturday morning projects. “We really wanted to weed the plant beds at Shelter Island focusing on the Hubble sculpture area, and also at the Submarine Memorial in NTC Park,” she said. “We wanted mulch in those areas and MADCAPS donated much of the mulch. We did this more than once. The Mean Green Team directed, and they (MADCAPS) loved doing it, and it looks great.”

Adelizzi Parker noted the City has a shortage of landscape personnel adding, “So we stepped up to help fill that gap where there’s a need for cleanup. We lend a number of moms and girls to help out. What we do is we organize, help in getting those extra hands they need to help them out.”

MADCAPS presently has a total of 427 members all residing in their coverage area, which includes Mission Hills and Point Loma.

Willie Armstrong is a lying lowlife loser - just like me. This scam he is running is to con stupid Republicans out of their money - just like I did. I had to fire him when Ivanka told me she saw Larry Elder and my skank ho wife Melania going at it - and in the Lincoln Bedroom ! Unfair ! So, do NOT vote for sneaky Larry Elder on Sept. 14

My brother Willie Armstrong blames me for getting fired by Donald Trump when he was Trump’s man servant in the White House.

Willie had been hired by Trump to learn how to improve his tiny hands handjob technique in preparation for his first meeting with Russian dictator Putin.

Melania had hired me to show her Putin’s favorite position, doggystyle, also in preparation for her first encounter with the dictator.

PS - I am voting for Newsom on Sept. 14 because I know - as a Republican - how inept and corrupt I would be.
