In an effort to support workforce development initiatives that help close the equity gap for African Americans, the California American Water Northern Division donated $10,000 to the Greater Sacramento Urban League, as part of the American Water Charitable Foundation’s larger give to National Urban League and its Affiliate Movement.
The American Water Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of American Water, the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company.
“Our organization has been dedicated to empowering communities and changing lives in the Sacramento region since 1968,” said Dwayne Crenshaw, President and CEO of the Greater Sacramento Urban League. “Our efforts have helped tens of thousands of Sacramentans gain meaningful employment, access educational opportunities, and strengthen their financial well-being. The generous funding from the American Water Charitable Foundation will help bolster our existing workforce development programs and further our mission to build communities where all families and individuals can live well, be well, and thrive.”
