Several nonprofits, including the Blind Community Center of San Diego, Elder Help of San Diego and Girl Scouts San Diego, received grants, as did the Fallbrook Senior Citizens Service Club Inc., which received $1,295 to be spent on 10 8' folding tables.
CECO has been the charitable arm of the County of San Diego since 1956 and strives to lend a hand to the community by way of grants to local nonprofit programs and assistance to employees and retirees in need.
CECO distributes 100% of the funds it raises back to the community and has given more than $7 million back to San Diego County.
