Community Service Day is held every year on the fourth Saturday in September in Pleasant Hill. Project and Volunteer registration for the event usually begins in June each year.
Launched in 2005 by Mayor Michael Harris and the Civic Action Commission, CSD is a day where members of the community of all ages come together to volunteer their time for a variety of worthy causes and projects.
Over the past thirteen years, more than 40,000 volunteer hours have been logged to improve the Pleasant Hill community. Together we have:
Cleaned up neighborhoods, schools, parks, and creeks
Planted scores of beautiful trees
Landscaped parks and organic gardens
Repaired over 1,000 bicycles for donation to children
Donated blood to save dozens of lives
Collected over 19 tons of food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano
