We are grateful to Las Patronas for choosing Rise Up Industries as a 2019 Spring Minor Beneficiary grant recipient. The Las Patronas grant allows Rise Up Industries to purchase a TRAK K3 EMX Knee Mill for our machine shop. This grant enables our Machine Shop to expand our training program for former gang-involved ex-offenders. Our Machine Shop job training plays an important role in helping our members compete for a well-paying job in the machining industry when they graduate from Rise Up Industries. We’re excited about the contribution our members are able to make to the San Diego community as they successfully transition away from gang activity. The generosity of Las Patronas has provided significant help for enriching our job training program.
