UHCA Board Member MaryBeth Chruden, along with the help of some Birney Elementary School students and the hard work of UHCA’s stellar Beautification Committee, presented the team’s proposal for a grant at Voice of San Diego’s annual Politifest. The judges were overwhelmed by the creativity of all of the projects presented, bending the rules and providing funding for all final proposals. The UHCA proposal for vertical succulent gardens at local bus stops was awarded second place, receiving funding of $1500 from San Diego Gas & Electric. Congratulations to all who worked on the grant proposal!
