Pleasant Hill Community Service Day

Aug 27, 2016 05:17PM ● Published by Becky Coburn

Pleasant Hill’s Community Service Day, launched in 2005 by former Mayor Michael Harris and the Pleasant Hill Civic Action Commission, is a day where members of the community of all ages come together to volunteer their time for a variety of worthy causes and projects.

Last year more than 1,000 volunteers worked on dozens of projects throughout the city. Over the past eleven years, we as a community have donated over 40,000 volunteer hours to improve the place we call home. Together we have:

·      Cleaned up neighborhoods, schools, parks, creeks and churches

·      Planted scores of beautiful trees

·      Repaired over 1,000 bicycles for donation to children

·      Donated blood to save dozens of lives

·      Collected over 10 tons of food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano

·      Helped children and seniors in need

The 12th annual Community Service Day will be held on Saturday, September 24, and begins at Pleasant Hill Park, with registration and breakfast from 7:30am to 9am. There will be over 20 projects at school sites, parks, Ellinwood Creek, and others to choose from. All volunteers receive a free pancake breakfast (served by the Lions Club), and the first 600 to register at the park receive a free event T-Shirt, plus snacks and drinks to take to the project sites.
