Moraga Community Service Day scheduled for Oct. 1-2

The town of Moraga has a rich history of community service, residents rolling up their sleeves to help people in need and to make Moraga and its extended community a better place. Of these ideals was born the Moraga Community Service Day project, with the singular goal of bringing the townsfolk together to assist those in need, and help beautify our schools and town. This is your opportunity to help Moraga; to care, give and connect.
This project is sponsored and led by several Moraga Community groups, including Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, Garden Club, Moraga Chamber of Commerce, Moraga School District, Campolindo High School, and Saint Mary's College.
This weekend event encourages all Moraga families to sign up and volunteer 1-3 hours on Saturday or Sunday and truly help people in need as well as the community of Moraga. Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek have held similar events with great success for their communities.
A few key projects include: donating food for homeless, low-income families, isolated seniors and foster children; painting planting pots with messages of kindness and personal expression of caring delivered and donated to various local seniors organizations; helping the Moraga School District with beautification at multiple campuses through gardening and cleaning; planting new shade trees in the front and side of the Commons Park Bandshell for greater sun safety and enjoyment; participating in sustainable gardening projects at Campolindo High School and Saint Mary's College; donating blood to help those needing blood infusions to save lives; helping local seniors with projects, errands and socialization; and fire abatement and trail clearing locally to safeguard our local residents.
These selected projects and more represent a great opportunity for Moraga residents and families to show their caring by volunteering time, resources, and working with fellow civic minded residents to enhance our great inclusive community.
