Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - NEWS RELEASE

San Diego, CA – Among a brightly decorated holiday tree and festive seasonal decorations in the Mayor’s Office, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and the Verizon Foundation rang in the holiday spirit of giving by presenting a $50,000 grant to Workshops for Warriors.

The relationship between Workshops for Warriors and Verizon started during a “meet and greet” for veteran service providers with Mayor Faulconer’s Office. Over the past few months, Mayor Faulconer has encouraged San Diego’s business community to help him build “One San Diego” by working with veteran and minority communities. Workshops for Warriors is a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to training, certifying and placing veterans into advanced manufacturing careers.
