Capitol Tech Solutions’ Staff Rid Local Waterways Of Refuse
The Sacramento-based Digital Transformation firm’s commitment to community drives company-wide support of local nonprofits, like the American River Parkway Foundation
Staff from Capitol Tech Solutions cleaned up about 100 pounds of trash as part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to the American River Parkway Foundation.
The volunteer event held on March 18, 2021, saw a turnout of leadership and employees from the digital transformation agency who worked together as they descended upon the Sacramento and American riverbanks to clean up refuse.
The American River Parkway is a 4,800-acre, 23-mile waterway in the heart of Sacramento.
American River Parkway Foundation Executive Director Dianna Poggetto told CTS that volunteers are essential to the conservation of the American River Parkway and ensuring it’s kept free of litter.
“Every year, the American River Parkway Foundation works with thousands of volunteers to clear trash and debris, maintain hiking and equestrian trails, remove invasive plants, repair infrastructure, and more,” Poggetto said. “Collaboration with groups like Capitol Tech Solutions helps boost those efforts.”
CTS Director of People Justino Santana, who organized the gathering, previously served as the community engagement manager for the American River Parkway Foundation.
“I trained for my half-marathons and marathon on the trails of the American River Parkway, so it holds a special significance to me, personally. I believe we need to do our part to preserve its natural beauty for everyone to enjoy. I was pleased with the turnout of our employees.”
Heather LaVergne, a CTS account manager, said she volunteered because keeping local waterways and parks clean for wildlife and visitors is important to her.
“It was a great opportunity to do something positive for our community with my team,” LaVergne said.
Alongside LaVergne, CEO Bobby Reed braved steep drop-offs from the park to riverbanks below in their search for trash. He said he envisions using kayaks to access secluded beaches where garbage accumulates just out of reach of even the most daring of volunteers.
“Community is a core value of Capitol Tech Solutions,” Reed said. “We believe in giving back to the Greater Sacramento Area through trash clean-ups and the sponsorship of local nonprofits.”
The Sacramento-based digital agency selects a different local nonprofit to support each month and offers an employee donation matching program. In addition to the American River Parkway Foundation, CTS supports the Breathe California Sacramento Region, Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps., Sacramento Rotary Club, and Friends of Sacramento Arts.
