SecureView joined the City of Phoenix to support a community revitalization event in the local Homedale neighborhood last week. On Saturday, March 29th over 150 volunteers came together to give the area a spring cleaning in conjunction with the citywide Cesar Chavez Day of Service. SecureView supported the revitalization efforts by donating and installing window and door systems for a vacant home in the heart of the service area.
“First and foremost we would like to especially thank the City of Phoenix and the volunteers who donated their time to make this day possible,” said Robert Klein, SecureView Chairman and Co-Founder. “Efforts such as this are in complete alignment with SecureView’s goal of fighting community blight. Seeing both the relief and gratitude expressed by the people of Homedale makes our mission worth pursuing.”
To show special gratitude to the participants, SecureView provided volunteer lunches, t-shirts and refreshments throughout the day.
"This clean-up event coincided with the National proclamation of Cesar Chavez Day, which made it even more special to witness hundreds of volunteers making a difference in our community," said Councilman Michael Nowakowski. "This also marked the city's first use of a new product designed to fight blight. It's clear to see this product will change the way vacant homes are secured."
Among the organizations represented by volunteers were, Arizonian State University Upward Bound, Sun Devils in Disguise, Wells Fargo, Metro Tech, La Campesina, Vista Corps and the City of Phoenix. Participants spent the day trimming grass, removing trash and tending to neighborhood homes.
