In honor of Giving Tuesday, Westgroup Designs launched a virtual food drive running from 11/28/22-12/2/22. The goal was to raise enough money to provide 1200 meals to our food insecure neighbors in Orange County. There are approximately 18,030 people that are food insecure in Orange County. 4,420 children under 18 are food insecure in Orange County. 3,216 children receiving free/reduced school meals in Orange County.
The food drive went through Second Harvest Food Bank, a non-profit with the mission to provide dignified, equitable and consistent access to nutritious food, creating a foundation for community health. By the end of the week-long fundraiser, WD had achieved 193% of our goal and secured 2,320 meals for the community. We thank our employees and community for helping us surpass our ambitious goal.
Westgroup Designs is delighted to announce that our most recent new building for Coastline College, the 55,000 square foot Student Services Center, is now open to the public! On Thursday November 10th, a monumental celebration was hosted on site for the community of Fountain Valley to experience this grand facility which is the new home for the College’s collaborative administration departments, counseling and community conference centers and a new, innovative “one-stop shop” student services experience! Check out this article from the LA Times on the opening.
