Volunteer Spotlight: Delta Sigma Pi
This month, ILACSD would like to recognize Delta Sigma Pi, a UC San Diego professional fraternity. Delta Sigma Pi rallied 50 of its service chapter members to join us and Think Blue San Diego for Storm Drain Stenciling Day in November. They joined 150 other volunteers in stenciling 87 storm drains in Mira Mesa neighborhoods and removing litter and debris. They also give back to the San Diego community by volunteering with Feeding America and the American Red Cross. We thank Delta Sigma Pi members for their service in keeping San Diego clean!
