Hemacinto & Temecula Valley – Receive Community Improvement Funds

Each member of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors has a discretionary Community Improvement Designation budget, and the Nov. 5 board of supervisors’ meeting included the allocation of CID funds to several local agencies.

The grants included $9,000 for Friends of the Valley-Wide Foundation, $5,000 to Safe Family Justice Centers, $5,000 for The Salvation Army in Hemet, $3,000 to Assistance League of Hemacinto, $3,000 for Assistance League of Temecula Valley, $3,000 to the Hemet/San Jacinto Chamber of Commerce, $2,500 for All From the Heart, $2,500 to the Temecula Valley Symphony, $2,000 for the American Association of University Women’s Temecula Valley chapter, $2,000 to the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce and $1,000 apiece to Community Outreach Ministry, Rose Again Foundation, the San Jacinto/Hemet Valley chapter of Soroptomist International, Temecula Sunrise Rotary Foundation, and Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce. A 5-0 board of supervisors vote approved the grants.

Community Improvement Designation grants can be allocated to nonprofit organizations, public agencies, county departments or other organizations with programs which serve the social needs of the county’s population. The recommendations must be ratified by a majority board of supervisors’ vote. Supervisor Chuck Washington recommended the funding from his District 3 CID budget.

Assistance League of Hemacinto and Assistance League of Temecula Valley will use the grant to support “Operation School Bell®,” which provides clothing to elementary school age children in the Hemet, San Jacinto and mountain communities for Assistance League of Hemacinto and in Temecula, Murrieta and unincorporated southwest Riverside County for Assistance League of Temecula Valley.
