Gordon Philanthropies and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Receive National Recognition Achievement Award

The National Association of Counties awards Gordon Philanthropies and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department the 2024 Achievement Award.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) recently awarded Gordon Philanthropies and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department the 2024 Achievement Award in the Criminal Justice and Public Safety category. This accolade acknowledges their collaborative efforts in establishing the Children's Library Initiative. Through this initiative, Gordon Philanthropies and LASD have installed children’s libraries in all the visitor centers inside jails across Los Angeles County.

“We thank NACo for their recognition of the work we have managed to do in collaboration with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. We are proud to be part of the many organizations committed across the nation to helping our communities thrive. This award attests to the hard work and passion our county officials and their staff invest in designing innovative and forward-thinking government program services. Our foundation equally extends our gratitude to Sheriff Robert Luna and his team for supporting us on this journey in helping us bring the love of reading into every child’s life,” shared Dan Gordon, Founder of Gordon Philanthropies. 

The NACo Achievement Award recognizes outstanding county government programs and services in 18 different categories for their contributions to the community. In partnership with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, the Children’s Library Initiative addresses the educational necessities of children with parents who are incarcerated. Gordon Philanthropies provides books tailored to every child's interests, including bilingual and diverse literature, ensuring every child’s needs are met. 

"The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is honored to receive this prestigious award in the criminal justice and public safety category from the National Association of Counties, alongside Gordon Philanthropies. This recognition underscores the importance of our collaborative efforts in the Children's Library Initiative. By installing children's libraries in all visitors' centers inside jails across Los Angeles County, we are fostering a supportive environment for families, promoting literacy, and learning for children. This initiative affirms our commitment to positively impacting our community and ensuring that even in difficult circumstances, children have access to resources that inspire and educate," shared Sheriff Robert G. Luna, Head of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. 

Due to the large number of children with at least one parent in prison, positive visitation experiences have been found to be highly beneficial for both the child and incarcerated parent. Improved emotional adjustment, better behavior in school, and other benefits are often observed when children have child-friendly visitation opportunities.

“Gordon Philanthropies commitment to giving back sets an inspiring example for us all. Their generosity delivers hope and positive change to inmates and their families. May their work inspire us to create a compassionate and equitable world,” said Senator Maria Elena Durazo.

Gordon Philanthropies and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department are honored by their recent recognition and remain committed to continue providing access to quality educational resources to all children for years to come.

SEAM Group Selected as EPC Contractor for Nuvve’s Groundbreaking Fresno Electrification Project

SEAM Group announces its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

SEAM Group, a global leader in energized asset performance, is proud to announce its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

In alignment with Fresno EOC's commitment to sustainable transportation solutions, the organization is taking a significant step to reduce Fresno's carbon footprint by transitioning its fleet to electric vehicles. This initiative will see Fresno EOC replace its fleet with 50 electric Class-A shuttles over five years. A 2.5-megawatt on-site solar generation and battery energy storage system will be installed to support the electric shuttles. SEAM Group, recognized for its proven platform that combines strategic advisory, custom training solutions, field inspection, and maintenance, will provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the project and will celebrate its groundbreaking on June 20, 2024.

SEAM Group engineers and renewable energy specialists are poised to play a critical role in the project's success. "We will leverage our expertise across the entire project lifecycle, providing comprehensive services that include strategic advisory support, design, engineering, and procurement of the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and solar battery storage systems, thorough site assessment and planning, and construction management," said Colin Duncan, SEAM Group CEO. "This comprehensive approach ensures a smooth transition for the Fresno EOC, addressing all aspects from strategic planning to the physical construction of the project."

A unique aspect of this project involves minimizing reliance on the grid during peak demand hours. SEAM Group's expertise will ensure seamless solar battery storage system integration, allowing the electric fleet to operate independently during these times.

"I applaud the Fresno EOC team for their vision of implementing on-site generation, battery storage, interconnection to the grid, and EV charging on a single site. It is encouraging to see lessons learned from years of design and installation applied to develop a first-class location," remarked Scott Moretz, SEAM Group COO.

"We are honored to serve as the EPC contractor for this significant project, partnering with Nuvve and Imperial Electric Services. Our combined expertise ensures a safe and efficient transition to an electrified fleet, empowering Fresno EOC to embrace renewable energy and reduce operational costs," said Simon Boyce, SEAM Group CRO.
