In this economy, it couldn’t have come at a better time - a welcome donation from County and court employees to 80 charities in San Diego County.
San Diego County Employees’ Charitable Organization, also known as CECO, awarded more than $217,000 in grant awards to local charities ranging from the Palomar Family YMCA to Rebuilding Together San Diego. Checks were distributed during an annual awards breakfast in National City. County Supervisor Greg Cox gave the keynote speech.
All the money was donated by County and San Diego Superior Court employees and retirees. The grant awards will ultimately benefit 89 programs representing 80 local non-profit organizations. An additional $50,000 will go into a fund to help County employees and retirees in crisis.
CECO was established in 1956 and over the years has donated millions of dollars to the local community.
