Operation Courage is Beautiful has been chosen to receive a $5000 ‘Drive for Charity’ Community Hero Grant from the South Bay Expressway (Toll Road 125) of Chula Vista, California! A friend of OCIB founder Cindy Chan, Genevieve DePerio Fong, nominated OCIB when she heard about the South Bay Expressway grant program. Last week, Genevieve contacted Cindy to let her know that OCIB won a grant! OCIB, the Send ME Foundation, Friends of Chula Vista Parks and Recreation and Project Hand were chosen after a review of over 237 nominations. A grant presentation for all awardees will be held this Friday at 12:30pm in Otay Mesa at the South Bay Expressway Customer Service Center.
This Friday, November 19, Drive for Charity is also donating $1 from every trip on the toll road to local charities, including Homefront San Diego.
