Walnut Creek’s Community Service Day is this Saturday, October 14th. The giving season is underway, and if you are considering donating, I ask that you please consider doing so to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. More and more people need help and there are some great sales on the items on the shopping list below. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated!
If you would like to take part, there are four options for giving:
Give a bag of food from your home: put a bag of food in clear view at the end of your driveway by 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Donate at any Walnut Creek Safeway: money and food can be donated at any location from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Call Kristin: you can call me to pick up your donation or drop it off at my house (190 Arlene Dr., Walnut Creek), as long as it’s done by 10 a.m. on Saturday.
As we move through 2020, we have come to the realization that nothing we do is the way it used to be. For me, the keyword(s) for the year are “pivot” and “flexibility.” As many of you know, for the last four years, I have done a pie party and donation drive for the Trinity Center. This year, I don’t see it occurring in our COVID environment.
So, this year, I am pivoting. I’m being flexible. This year, I’m going to host a neighborhood food drive for Walnut Creek’s annual Community Service Day! If you live in my Parkmead neighborhood, you’ll be receiving a one-page flyer this week with more information on how to participate. If you don’t live in my neighborhood, I would be happy to coordinate.
Taking part is easy. Fill up a bag with non-perishable items and either call, text, or email me to come pick up your bag on your front porch (no contact pickup). Or, you can drop it off on my front porch. To get ahold of me, visit my website here.
Another option, you can drop-off option at any one of the donation sites or on Saturday October 10th Walnut Creeks Community Service Day. I will be working at Heather Farms on the 10th helping to sort the neighborhood’s donations and will drive them all over that day. Thank you to everyone for participating!
