Parks Foundation Presents Donation to Board of Supervisors
Wednesday, August 17, 2016
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation recently presented the Board of Supervisors with a donation of $85,000 to fund existing and new San Mateo County Parks’ projects. The Foundation is solely dedicated to supporting County Parks by raising funds and providing in-kind services for improvements and programs. It routinely makes donations to the Parks Department throughout a calendar year.
This recent donation is earmarked for popular park programs, such as Bicycle Sunday, which provides bicyclists a car-free stretch of Canada Road on Sundays, and Student Conservation Association crews, which provide area youth with summer environmental work experience in parks. In addition, the Foundation’s support will help launch the new free Park Shuttle as well as trail way-finding signs in Huddart and Wunderlich parks.
