Volunteers will be working with staff at Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (aka B.O.S.S.) to help build shelves, maintain the garden, organize resources, and help prepare the property for a major infrastructure project. B.O.S.S. provides comprehensive services that help homeless families and individuals move from homelessness to homes with improved skills and knowledge of resources so they can stay healthy and housed.

Volunteers will be working alongside longtime community partner Claremont Middle School in North Oakland to help the PTA and staff there on grounds improvements, helping classroom teachers, as well as general maintenance. Project Peace's volunteers have made a significant impact to the campus at Claremont over the years and our ability to serve there greatly bolsters the work of both staff and the PTA. Please, bring cleaning rags, brooms, and gardening tools if you are able. View Map

A Day of Peace is a coordinated effort by Project Peace East Bay to bring together local faith-based groups, non-profit organizations, and East Bay social service providers in order to promote the common good of our East Bay communities through quarterly volunteer service opportunities. Project Peace's hope is that through these partnerships our local East Bay communities will become more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. A Day of Peace is an opportunity for people from very different backgrounds to come together simply to love and serve our shared community. Whether you are a friend, neighbor, colleague, someone who cares very deeply about the agency that is being served, or someone who just wants to make new friends, the Day of Peace is a great place for you to get connected into working towards more sustainable communities.
