On June 14, United Way of San Joaquin held a Mini-Grant Awards Presentation at the Manteca Branch. This year, United Way distributed $10,000 to six local non-profits in the Manteca, Lathrop, Escalon, and Ripon areas.

Every year the Modesto Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Modesto Program, also known as LeMo, identifies, educates, and motivates potential community leaders. At the conclusion of their year in the LeMo program, they encourage participants to volunteer their time to identify and complete a service project that will have a positive impact in the Community.

The LeMo Class of 2017, made up of 24 community leaders from various industries, chose to raise awareness of the arts in the community while revitalizing Downtown Modesto. Their project entailed beautifying two Downtown Modesto intersections just in front of the Gallo Center for the Arts.
