The Nipomo Lions Club recently donated $1,000 to the Nipomo Food Basket.
Over the past several years the Lions have donated more than $16,000 and 5,000 pounds of food to the local charity, according to Lions Club member Bob McGill.
GRID Alternatives Central Coast, with the support of a grant from Wells Fargo, recently joined local veterans and community groups to install rooftop solar systems on the homes of two local veterans as part of a Veterans Day event.
GRID’s national Troops to Solar initiative provides solar industry workforce training to 1,000 U.S. military veterans and active service members.
Locally, work completed over the past year included participation and training of 41 active military and veterans.
