The Custody-to-Community Transition Reentry Program (CCTRP) in San Diego saw eight participants volunteer to help clean trash and debris from the local river.
The August 27 event, “Clean & Green,” is hosted by the San Diego River Park Foundation. Reentry clients helped other community volunteers clean the San Diego River Basin.
It is estimated 200,000 pounds of trash is collected from the river each years. The CCTRP clients learned ways to help keep the community and environment clean and free of debris, all while residing at the facility.
For some clients, this is their second time volunteering with the “Clean & Green” team. After volunteering a third time, they will receive t-shirts to wear at future volunteer events.
