Employees celebrate Earth Month through service

Submitted by sempra_ian on

Hundreds of employees across the Sempra family of companies recently embraced their role as Environmental Champions to volunteer for Mother Earth in a series of sustainability-centered events.

Whether cleaning up beaches and parks, restoring wetlands, harvesting plant crops or removing invasive plant species so that native plant species can survive — our employees take pride in helping to shape a better quality of life through service to our communities.

Our Earth Month events in California and Texas showcase environmental initiatives in partnership with nonprofit organizations:

  • In Harris County, Texas, Sempra Infrastructure Volunteer Champions kicked off Earth Month with a Family Service Day in partnership with Memorial Park Conservancy. The volunteer team tackled service projects around the park, learned about Houston’s unique ecosystem and got a hands-on conservation experience in Memorial Park.

  • In San Diego County, volunteers will plant trees to celebrate Arbor Day with Tree San Diego, clean up beaches with I Love a Clean San Diego and restore and preserve the Tecolote Canyon Nature Park.

  • In Los Angeles County and Orange County, volunteers from SoCalGas will provide Compost Hub support alongside GrowGood benefitting the Salvation Army Bell Shelter. In partnership with California State Parks Foundation, volunteers will plant native milkweed and other pollinator supporter plants. With Ventura Lands Trust and Friends of Ballona Wetlands, volunteers will remove invasive plants and non-native weeds.

Giving with Sempra Foundation

Sempra Foundation has long supported the community involvement of employees across the Sempra family of companies, and offers employees a special opportunity for employees to multiply their impact by providing a match to employee charitable donations and volunteer time. This year, Sempra Foundation offered a special Double Match Day opportunity during Earth Month to help employees have an even greater positive impact with environmental charities and other eligible organizations.
