Thank you to the 1,300-plus volunteers who turned out for Community Service Day 2015.
Together, we completed 49 projects, helping schools, parks, libraries, non-profits and more!
Among the 2015 Community Service Day highlights:
- 34 volunteers of all ages cleaned the equipment at the All Abilities Playground
- 175 volunteers cleaned an estimated 15,000 children's and teen book covers in our libraries
- 26 teens painted a mural for the teen area at the Ygnacio Valley Library
- Through the work of 140 volunteers at four parks (who spread wood chips on old ornamental lawns), the city will reduce water consumption by 2 million gallons per year.
- More than 6,500 pounds of food was collected for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano counties – that’s more than 5,400 meals
- Throughout the downtown, 19 volunteers cleaned and prepped the surfaces of utility boxes for artwork
These are just a few of the wonderful things our community did together! Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 8, 2016 – the next Walnut Creek Community Service Day.
