Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and our North County Food Bank chapter comprise the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. The San Diego Food Bank depends on volunteers to help sort through produce and help put together food donation bags. This visit, we bagged apples for the weekly donation bags.
The firm and friends of the firm joined Surfrider Foundation to help keep our beautiful city clean. Our team filled several bags of trash scattered throughout Ocean Beach and logged our findings. Cigarette butts are the number one most littered item in San Diego. Our team found over 50 cigarette butts alone.
The firm spent Saturday morning volunteering at the 30th Annual Aids Walk Run on September 28, 2019. We cheered on the participants and provided water. Over 18,000 San Diegans are living with HIV/AIDS and the funds raised help support 14 local HIV service organizations in our community.
Our firm was one of the 2019 Walk Like MADD event sponsors. The event aims to raise awareness and funds to eliminate drugged and drunk driving. This is a nationwide event occurring in 90 cities. Some of the firm participated in the walk while others remained at the booth passing out snacks and beverages to the participants.
We are excited to announce our Summer 2019 Scholarship recipient, Francisco De Jesus. It is evident from his essay that Francisco cares deeply about the importance of higher education, and we have no doubt that he will be very successful at whatever he sets out to do. Congratulations, Francisco.
