What an epic Day of Service!
This past Saturday, over 200 volunteers did some serious work at 10 local East Bay sites, donating a total of 680 hours! All while rocking our new Day of Service temporary tattoos! Enjoy more photos when you click a smiling face above. :)

As our volunteer Ken Balderrama from Reunion Oakland Church put it,  "It seemed as if the three hours had passed by in mere moments, but much was accomplished.  What a great opportunity for people to get out of the pews and into the community and serve others."
