The Unforgettables Foundation Helps Families Remember
The Unforgettables Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded by Tim Evans, with the help of Inland Empire educators, medical professionals, social workers, and morticians. It is committed to helping parents and communities endure the terrible and unfortunate death of a child. The Unforgettables Foundation mission is to assist low-income families provide a dignified, appropriate burial for their children who have passed away. They seek to empower communities to memorialize those children and encourage communities to recognize the financial burden that often surfaces with the death of a child.

This organization perfectly combines professionalism with compassion in dealing with this very sensitive and very tragic set of circumstances.

Cucamonga Valley Water District Staff Members Educate Consumers On Water Supply and Conservation
The Cucamonga Valley, like most of western San Bernardino County, is rapidly urbanizing. With urbanization comes an increased demand on local resources, including our water supply. This demand has prompted the Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) to educate consumers about the value of water, where their water supply comes from, and how every day we can each do our part to be good stewards of our natural resources. Without an educated and engaged customer base, water conservation and an appreciation for natural resources would not be possible. Part of this customer education includes a student learning component, which occurs at CVWD's Environmental Learning Center. Every year, thousands of students learn about our local water supply, water pollution, and other envffironmental issues in an interactive, hands-on learning environment. School classes grades 1-6 are invited to visit the Learning Center during the school year.
