Danville residents looking for a way to give back to their community have a wonderful opportunity to volunteer as the Town of Danville gears up for the 14th Annual Lend-A-Hand Day, April 28, 2018.

Lend-A-Hand Day provides assistance to Danville senior homeowners with basic yardwork and clean up needs. The Town of Danville, along with an estimated 120 volunteers from the community, join forces to go to a number of residences to perform the needed work. Volunteers begin with a brief orientation at the Danville Community Center, before heading out to their assigned tasks.  Work generally runs from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Volunteers with garden tools like shovels, rakes, and weed whackers are especially needed. Volunteers, 16 years and older, are encouraged to register here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LendaHand2018.

If Lend-A-Hand Day isn’t workable, other volunteer opportunities are available, including: Eggstravaganza, May the Fourth Be with You, the Danville Senior Center, Craft Prep, Kid’s Night Out, and shifts are available at the Art Gallery and the Visitor Center at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley. Volunteering is great for your health, keeps your mind and body active, and allows you to give back to our community.  Check out www.danville.ca.gov/volunteer for more information.

For more information, or if you have a group that would like to volunteer, contact Volunteer Program Specialist Julie Mason at (925)314-3478 or jmason@danville.ca.gov.


  1. I, for one, am overwhelmed by the support expressed here in the last 4 days for our needy seniors. I applaud the new administration for taking the lead in this effort toward a kindler, gentler ‘Merica.
