After a week of submissions, 2,300 votes were cast and fans choose South Bay Clean Creek Coalition (SBCCC) to receive the funding as well as assistance with a local beautification project. On May 11, volunteers from Citrix and the Sharks spent the day cleaning a section of the Guadalupe River with SBCCC to make the area a safer place for community members and the unique wildlife that inhabit the waterway. 

On April 3, volunteers from team partner Poly and the Sharks Foundation collected over 81 lbs. of trash and 6 lbs. of recycling at Seabright Beach in Santa Cruz. Additionally, the two organizations provided a $5,000 donation to project partner Save Our Shores. Funding will further its K-12 Student Education Program through fieldtrips and marine based classroom curriculum. This was Poly and the Foundation's third annual Santa Cruz county beach clean-up.
