Vocational Visions DonationVocational-Visions-LOGO-Custom-3

Vocational Visions and the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center will each receive nearly $3,000 from the nonprofit Care For The Children, which recently painted curbs throughout Mission Viejo. Care For The Children uses volunteer donations from address painting on curbs to raise funds for its organization and other charities. The organization provides cash and clothing to other charities to benefit the less fortunate.

City Designates Charity

Donovan Saldavor

Donovan Saldivar, with Care for the Children, walks to the next curb to paint in Corona. After getting complaints about groups doing poor jobs and charging too much, the city is allowing just one group to paint curb addresses.

Corona, responding to complaints about private groups doing poor work or overcharging when painting home address numbers on curbs, has designated one organization to paint all the addresses in the city.

Care for the Children, a nonprofit organization that provides cash and clothing to other charities, sent out crews of three to five workers this week once the rain let up.

“This allows the city to know who’s doing the work out there,” Public Works Manager Dean Wetter said.
