The Corporate Challenge is a free program that encourages Santa Clara County companies to get involved with their local communities by adopting and cleaning a stretch of creek in Santa Clara County through the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Adopt-A-Creek program.
Companies are responsible for holding a minimum of two creek cleanups a year in which their employees participate on a volunteer basis.
To join the program, a company simply:
- chooses a section of creek to help clean
- signs up for the program with the water district
- specifies the days it will perform its cleanup
- organizes a volunteer party of employees and their friends to participate in the cleanup
The water district provides gloves and trash bags to perform the cleanup and will also pick up all collected trash and debris.
Businesses participate to demonstrate their commitment to the community and to help build relationships among employees outside of the office.
