On Sept. 29 Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with United Way, renovated the grounds at the Santa Paulan Apartments. Almost 35 volunteers from United Way, Cabrillo and the Santa Paula community took part in this event.
Overall, volunteers were able to clean up around the outside of the Santa Paulan and improve the landscape by spreading mulch and planting new flowers and shrubs.
“it was nice to play in the dirt and feel like a kid again, I feel younger than I really am,” said Santa Paulan resident Maria Rodriguez.
Resident & Community Services staff, including Beth Parker, Gloria Solorzano, Diana Ortega, and Jessica Rios organized the event.
“The event was a positive experience in community engagement and community building with volunteers, staff and community members. Many said they found it rewarding,” Rios said.
