The Republic Services Charitable Foundation is pleased to present Urban Corps of San Diego a 2023 National Neighborhood Promise® grant. The $250,000 grant will support extensive trail restoration, waste removal and sustainability education for the Otay Valley Regional Park. This Fall, Republic Services volunteers from San Diego and Chula Vista will participate in a day of volunteerism to help revitalize the trails within the parks.
“Urban Corps is excited to receive this grant and looks forward to working with Republic Services, the local municipalities and the community. Urban Corps offers a unique program where our Corpsmembers earn their high school diploma while they receive paid jobs training. This project will give our Corpsmembers valuable training and a sense of pride helping to keep the park and the surrounding areas safe and clean.”
