Employees in the City of Chino have launched a grass-roots movement, “Chino Cares” aimed at reaching every area of the city’s diverse community to bring people in a nation that is sorely divided over a variety of differences.
The goal of the initiative is to unify members of the community under the sentiment “We Care,” that is common across the city.
The initiative was launched by a team of more than 35 city employees at the September 4th meeting of the Chino City Council. During the session, several members of the community signed a pledge and, in the process, demonstrated their commitment to the effort.
Each movement participant, including employees, residents, businesses and/or organizations, is asked to pledge to five basic principles. The principles include individuals being informed, prepared, connected, committed and supportive in order to help make Chino a more resilient community after any kind of disaster or critical incident the City may face.
In addition to making our community more resilient, Chino Cares will also allow city employees opportunities to personally connect with members of the community through special events and projects, in other words, the employees will bring City Hall into the community.
“It’s all in the name-Chino Cares!” said Mayor Eunice M. Ulloa. “People in Chino care about what happens here, and they are enthusiastically willing to give of their time, skills and energy to invest in Chino. This is the key to maintaining strong and healthy neighborhoods.” She added, “I commend our staff for kicking off this movement and challenge our residents and businesses to take the pledge today!”
