Thank you to everyone who made the Community Service Day Citywide Food Drive a resounding success. Together, we collected nearly 11,500 pounds of food and close to $9,000 dollars - combined, that will provide 27,816 meals.
Launched in 2005 by Mayor Michael Harris and coordinated by the Civic Action Commission, CSD is a day where members of the community of all ages come together to volunteer their time for a variety of worthy causes and projects.
Over the past 16 years, more than 43,000 volunteer hours have been logged to improve the Pleasant Hill community. Together we have:
Cleaned up neighborhoods, schools, parks, and creeks
Planted scores of beautiful trees
Landscaped parks and organic gardens
Repaired over 1,000 bicycles for donation to children
Donated blood to save dozens of lives
Collected over 26 tons of food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano
