Six area groups committed to the Silicon Valley community were recently awarded a total of $21,000 in sponsorships by the Port of Redwood City Board of Commissioners.
They include Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation, the Redwood City Library Foundation, City Trees, Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation, Sequoia YMCA and San Mateo County Historical Association.
The second annual community sponsorship program funds local events and efforts that highlight community-forward maritime activities, focused on economic growth, environmental stewardship, youth and education, and community benefit.
“The Sponsorship Program is one way the port delivers on our commitment to serve Silicon Valley,” said Board of Port Commissioner Chair Ralph A. Garcia. “We are pleased to support important community programs, while also educating our community on the Port’s varied businesses.”
Events and programs chosen by the port program are expected to take place between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.
