We are so blessed with so much living in the San Ramon Valley. Another great resource for volunteer opportunities is: CPC Goodwoorks.org. Community Presbyterian Church is based in Danville and has many mission partners that could use your time and talents in a variety of ways. CPC just hosted a summer food drive in which their goal was to collect 6000 food bags for the less fortunate in Richmond. Where your heart is, your treasure will follow.
