Walnut Creek's Community Service Day Recap

Oct 31, 2016 11:51AM, Published by Jennifer Neys, Categories: Community



On Saturday, October 8, approximately 1,200 volunteers working on 51 different projects participated in Community Service Day. Cindy Silva, founder and co-chair of Community Service Day in Walnut Creek, provides some of the highlights: 

·  45 volunteers deep-cleaned the equipment at the All Abilities Playground at Heather Farm Park and the playground equipment at two other parks

· 75 volunteers at three parks spread 380 cubic yards of mulch on old ornamental lawns. This work will help continue to reduce the city's water consumption.

· 17 volunteers assembled two “play structures” at the Dog Park at Heather Farm Park for our four-legged friends.

·  47 volunteers cleaned and painted 370 parking meters in our downtown.

·  Two dozen volunteers worked overtime to finish their landscaping beautification project at the Ygnacio Valley Library.

·  Nearly 300 volunteers spruced up 10 public school campuses

·  We collected around 4,500 pounds of food for the needy, equating nearly 3,700 meals!
