The Alpha Project
This spring, Swinerton Renewable Energy partnered with the Alpha Project, an organization dedicated to serving and empowering the homeless in San Diego. Their mission is to empower individuals and families by providing work, recovery and support services to people who are motivated to change their lives and achieve self-sufficiency.
Throughout March, the San Diego office collected new and gently used clothing to be donated to job seekers working with the Alpha Project. On April 4, 16 volunteers from Swinerton Renewable Energy, SOLV, and Swinerton San Diego volunteered their time at the Alpha Project to assist with serving dinner and clothing distribution.
Project Concern International & STEM in Your Backyard
Swinerton Renewable Energy and SOLV represented the solar industry on Sunday, April 28 at Project Concern International’s (PCI) Walk for Water and the STEM in Your Backyard fair at San Diego’s Mission Bay.
The Walk for Water raises awareness and funds for women and children living in water-scarce communities across the world. In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water, hours that could be spent at school or work. Learn more about PCI and their many missions at pciglobal.org.
STEM in Your Backyard brings meaningful STEM education to diverse communities throughout San Diego. Companies, non-profits, and other community organizations set up booths offering fun, hands-on STEM experiences to children and their families. Learn more at lovestemsd.org.
