This past Saturday, June 17, 2017, Helix Water District joined with community volunteers in the first ever Clean El Cajon Day at Wells Park. Under the “Helix Helps” program, over 20 Helix employees, families and friends volunteered their Saturday morning to support one of the many communities that the district serves.
The clean-up was held in the well-shaded, 18 acre park that is surrounded by homes and businesses and is heavily used year round. The City partnered with Waste Management, which provided the necessary materials needed for the cleanup as well as free tee shirts for community members in attendance.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to the cities in which we both live and work,” said Carlos Lugo, General Manager of Helix Water District. Through Helix Helps and events like these, Helix employees volunteer to help the communities they serve to continue to be beautiful places to live.
