San Diego volunteers have been participating in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk for many years, but this year topped the rest! The team not only reached their goal to raise $50,000 for the organization, they surpassed it—making them the #2 fundraising company in San Diego and on the top 15 fundraising walker list in a ten state region. Ninety-four supporters came out in full force on September 16 in support of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

A supporter of the American Heart Association for many years, The Swinerton Foundation was able to donate $15,000 to the organization this year.

In Orange County and Los Angeles, dozens of volunteers lent a hand for Community Service Program (CSP) on September 30 to provide repairs to the Huntington Beach Youth Shelter. Volunteers arrived that day ready to get their hands dirty for a good cause—painting, fixing plumbing, organizing, cleaning, trimming trees, making repairs, and power washing for five hours. It was a day full of hard, but rewarding work, knowing that the repairs would improve the lives of children and teens in the local area.

Thank you to everyone in SoCal for donating your Saturday to such incredible causes!
