While many slept after the 4th of July fireworks, volunteers from the reintegration program cleaned up the river beaches.
On July 5, four volunteers from the Community Guard Transitional Reintegration Program (CCTRP) helped the San Diego River Park Foundation clean up the Dog Beach Estuary in Ocean Beach.
The volunteers received water, gloves, cleaning products and other basic necessities.
“If there were awards for the hardest working team, San Diego CCTRP customers would have won,” organizers said. “They were very motivated and did a great job.”
What is the foundation?
“The San Diego River Park Foundation has worked with the community to change San Diego’s relationship with its namesake waterway. We remain a local nonprofit organization,” according to their website. “We rely on donations, support from the community and public and private grants for our work creating the San Diego River Park.”
