San Ramón en Acción

September 7, 2011

Volunteer opportunities abound in San Ramón, whatever your interests: education (teaching English, art or computer skills), animal rescue, library, fundraising, environment, orphanage or the Red Cross. Studies have shown that volunteering is good for your health, so pitch in and help out! To learn more, contact Paul Yeatman of the Community Action Alliance at pdyeatman @gmail.com or 8919-2710.

The alliance is more than halfway toward achieving its goal of collecting 1,000 books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and language materials to sell at its first Book Sale and Fundraiser in November. If you would like to take this great opportunity to de-clutter for a good cause, contact Louise Whittman at reesemickie@gmail.com, or bring your donations any Thursday at 10 a.m. to Gringo Central’s coffee at Café Delicias.

Upcoming Community Action Alliance events include a Sept. 23 mixer, with the purpose of networking and presenting a featured member business and updates on activities and initiatives. The alliance will also be hosting a Tai Chi Chih Workshop on Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit www.actionalliancecr.com.
