Leadership Sacramento’s Class of 2020 selected SRCC as our partner organization for our Class Project

LS2020 is moving forward with three projects for SRCC:

  1. A much needed beautification project of SRCC’s campus to make this site more welcoming to Corps members and potential members.  This part of the project will have a strong emphasis on providing educational opportunities for Corps members regarding landscape design (including demolition, gardening, and irrigation systems).

  2. Vegetable garden design, installation, and cultivation for Corps members, which will enhance food literacy efforts and also help provide members with fresh produce.

  3. Unrestricted funding to support the impact of COVID-19 on SRCC operations. SRCC like many local nonprofits, has been hard hit by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and we hope to assist them in offsetting a major loss in funding from other sources. 

SRCC helps build a stronger and healthier region by helping young adults from high risk environments discover opportunities and unlock their potential. Our class believes that SRCC’s mission is more important now than ever before.  Please consider making a donation online. 

Project Status

LS20 began work on the project once SRCC was selected as the awardee in April. Initial work includes coordinating with Cunningham Engineering through an In-Kind donation to develop low water use landscaping plans. Onsite work started in early August with removing the existing landscaping and prepping the land for the new landscaping. By the end of August, we hope to have the dirt work and irrigation completed and ready for planting in September.
