ABOUT: The CVCOC has chosen to focus on a specific cause for the year. In alignment with Impact2030, a private sector led initiative in collaboration with the United Nations, the CVCOC has chosen to address one of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – SDG 2 – No Hunger.
WHY: CVCOC is committed to addressing the most urgent needs in Orange County through an annual corporate combined volunteer project. Food insecurity is a pressing need in Orange County but is also an issue that can be addressed via volunteerism. Proper nutrition is the cornerstone of education, healthcare and workforce stability. Regardless of a company’s giving goals, SDG2 likely aligns with those priorities.
