Community Service Day 2019 will be Saturday, Sept. 28. Volunteer opportunities will be posted on this page by late August. Stay tuned!
Time to submit your project!
Sponsoring a Community Service Day project is a great way to connect with volunteers while accomplishing valuable work. Many Community Service Day volunteers become long-term supporters of their project's sponsoring agency.
Projects that register by Friday, July 12 will be promoted in the September "Outlook" newsletter.
Here are some project guidelines.
- Project sponsors must be non-profits, community groups, public agencies or schools.
- Projects must be located in Pleasant Hill, and be open to all community volunteers.
- Projects start at 9 a.m. on Sept. 28; ideally, projects can be done within 3 hours, although exceptions can be made.
Feel free to call Community Relations Manager Gayle Vassar at 925-671-5229 if you have questions.
