This year, VCREA was invited to participate in the annual Thousand Oaks Arbor Earth Day celebration at the Thousand Oaks Community Center. VCREA's participation was threefold, including an engaging and interactive booth, a static EV display, and a kid-friendly EV painting station. The booth was fully stocked with comprehensive EV information and brochures and featured virtual EV ride and drives on iPads. An alluring prize wheel aimed at attracting kids and their increased engagement. More than 100 individuals enthusiastically participated in our booth's EV-related game, while several more stopped by to have their EV-related queries answered. Some of the most common questions that arose were related to rebates and vehicle range.
In partnership with Mixteco Indigena Community Organizing Project (MICOP), VCREA organized a unique and memorable EV painting experience for the public. Kids and adults alike got a chance to express their artistic creativity by painting one Chevy Bolt and one PHEV Chrysler Pacifica with washable paints.
VCREA's participation in this event was made possible by the support and assistance of County of Ventura staff, as well as several dedicated high school volunteers who provided their help with set-up, supervising the painting activity, and clean-up. We are also grateful to the City of Thousand Oaks for hosting this exceptional community event.
