Today, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) helped spruce up a community center for families living in affordable housing in Rancho Cucamonga, enlisting employee volunteers and donating $10,000 to the non-profit organization which runs the facility. Employee volunteers painted the walls, assembled new furniture for the space and donated books and games for the children who spend time at the center. The facility, located in the Sunset Heights Apartment Homes community, holds after-school programs for at-risk youth of all ages to foster their well-being and promote self-sufficiency. It is operated by Hope through Housing Foundation, a non-profit organization which serves low-income and underserved families who live in National Community Renaissance (National CORE) properties. Photos from today’s beautification project are available here.
“SoCalGas is proud to partner with the Hope through Housing Foundation and National CORE to assist this organization and beautify a place for children to study and play after school,” said Trisha Muse, community relations director at SoCalGas. “SoCalGas is committed to supporting the communities we serve, not only by providing affordable and reliable energy, but also through our partnerships with organizations who are working to assist our friends and neighbors in the community.”
