Projects Continue on Oct. 21 & 28
Thanks for Oct. 14 Work . . . Plans for Postponed Projects
Thanks to everyone for your patience, great work, and understanding this past weekend.
As you know, because of unhealthy air quality conditions, we postponed all of this past Saturday's outdoor projects as well as a few indoor projects -- an amazing feat given the short notice and number of details that had to be managed.
Nearly 30 projects are now rescheduled for the coming two weekends. The final schedule for Oct. 21 and 28 is now available. Click here to confirm your project status or sign up for a new project.
If your project was postponed or cancelled, we hope you will join us later this month. And, even if you volunteered already, you are welcome to come back and volunteer again!
Tremendous Saturday Results
Nearly 400 community volunteers supported 15 projects this past Saturday, -- with great results.
- Almost every project had more volunteers than initially requested or registered.
- Nearly 200 people from toddlers to seniors helped at our two libraries (downtown and Ygnacio Valley).
- A group of 45 volunteers crowded into the Senior Center to make seasonal "tray" favors that will accompany the meal deliveries for Meals on Wheels/Senior Outreach Services.
- At Lindsay Wildlife, a group of rugged volunteers worked their way through a major clean-out of the storage building. What did they find? How about a 10-foot tall stuffed bear.
We collected more than 8,600 pounds of food. At Heather Farm, there was a steady stream of cars, from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., dropping off food. Rossmoor Rotary collected six barrels of food at the Gateway Clubhouse. In partnership with Whole Foods, we had volunteers at our two local Whole Foods locations, passing out fliers and accepting donations as customers exited the stores. We are still awaiting the results from two local businesses.
