Do you need to complete some community service hours? Are you a high school student looking for community service projects for school credit? Or do you just love to help out and take part in community events? Well then you’re in luck as plenty of volunteers are needed at two upcoming local seasonal community celebrations.

On Saturday, November 17, there will be the annual Thanksgiving Luncheon, serving seniors from our area, at the George Sim Community Center. Local senior Anthony Alfaro says that he “can’t wait to be in this year annual luncheon.” Most seniors who attend the Luncheon go to sava or advance path at the sim center. The event starts at 11am and if you are interested visit the sim center.

Then, on Saturday, December 15, the annual blanket drive will be held to serving the greater downtown area.  As many people may know, in downtown Sacramento, there are a lot of homeless people and around the holidays Sacramento is at its coldest peak of the year. The least we could do for our community is give them a blanket so they can remain warm. Local teacher Ms. Reed say that “each year they get more and more blankets and each year it pleases the community more and more.” It starts at 10am at the sim center.

If you are interested in volunteering for any of these events please contact “V” Roberson for more information by calling 916-808-3709 or by sending an email to vroberson@cityofsacramento.org.
