Community cleanup in Gilroy

Empowering veterans and communities: A day of service with CHEER and VFW

Posted by Graniterock on Mar 26, 2024

Coastal Habitat Education and Environmental Reclamation (CHEER) organization joined forces with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for a noble cause – a trash clean-up along Uvas Creek in Gilroy.

The Graniterock team was proud to be a part of this initiative, lending a helping hand to the hardworking volunteers. Not only did we assist with the clean-up efforts, but we also provided snacks and beverages to keep everyone energized throughout the day.

This volunteer event held special significance as it aligned with VFW's mission to empower veterans to continue serving their local communities long after their military service has ended. By partnering with organizations like CHEER, VFW aims to harness the skills and dedication of veterans to make a positive impact on the environment and society as a whole.

Together, we made a difference along the banks of Uvas Creek.

It's moments like these that remind us of the power of collaboration and the importance of giving back to the places we call home.

As we reflect on the success of this day of service, let's carry forward the spirit of camaraderie and service, knowing that together, we can continue to make a lasting and positive impact on our communities and the world around us.
