Community Service


The ASCE Orange County Branch (ASCE OC Branch) is partnering with Engineers Without Borders-USA Orange County Professionals (EWB-USA OC) for San Diego Zoo Safari Park bridge modification.  This project involves designing and installing railings on several existing bridges that are currently not in service as part the Safari Park expansion plan.  The pictures shown are conceptual drawings of the railing installation for one of the bridges, the Gorilla Bridge.  A volunteer day will be scheduled in Summer 2017 to perform work on the Safari Park bridge modification.


In addition, the ASCE OC Branch is partnering with Rebuilding Together Long Beach for National Rebuilding Month.  Rebuilding Together builds partnerships within the community to rebuild owner-occupied homes, shelters and non-profit facilities for low-income residents, particularly the elderly or those with disabilities, so they may live independently with dignity, in warmth and safety.  All services are at no cost to the recipient(s).  ASCE will be assisting home owners in Long Beach that require various repairs such as some exterior/interior painting, installation of smoke alarms, CO alarms, fire extinguishers, grab bars, etc.  Please sign up on Eventbrite.



The ASCE OC Branch is looking to partner with other local organizations such as HomeAid, Families Forward and Illumination Foundation.  These Orange County non-profit organizations all share a common mission to end homelessness.  We hope to help make a difference in our community by getting involved in these organizations.
