Help build a stronger Walnut Creek on Saturday, October 6, when Community Service Day returns for the second year in a row.
With more than 50 projects to choose from, there is something for every age, ability and interest. People can register as individuals, or sign up as a family or group.
Community Service Day starts off at 7:30 a.m. at the Heather Farm Community Center with registration and a free pancake breakfast, courtesy of the Walnut Creek Lions clubs. The Lions will also be collecting old eyeglasses, which they will refurbish and give to the needy around the world.
Not an early riser? Volunteers can go directly to their project's site at 8:45 a.m., or choose from one of several projects offering afternoon shifts
Pre-registration is encouraged (it's very helpful for project leaders to know how many people to expect).
Every Walnut Creek public school is sponsoring at least one project, as are more than 15 community non-profits, from the Ruth Bancroft Garden to Meals on Wheels. All projects will take less than 4 hours to complete.
Projects are filling up, so don't delay in signing up. A complete list of projects along with links to the simple online registration is available at www.walnut-creek.org/service. Questions? Call the Community Service Day hotline: 925-256-3505.
