Description

Join SCA and MUFG Union Bank on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH to restore the Oakland City Stables!

Since the establishment of Global Volunteer Month in 2013, MUFG employees all over the world have been working together on initiatives to host local contribution activities. SCA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor by facilitating opportunities for MUFG employees, family, and friends to engage in team-based service projects in 8 different cities. The projects will focus on some of the most urgent conservation needs in underserved urban communities.

The Oakland City Stables, managed by Diamond Equine Services, offers 7.2 acres of public green space in the Oakland Hills. The Stables provide a range of programming including community outreach programs and youth mentoring for inner city Oakland youth. The site also encompasses other historic and cultural resources including a community garden and historic hacienda estate buildings dating from the early 1900s (1906-1916). Many of the site's historic barns and outbuildings had been closed for decades. MUFG Union Bank employees will join SCA volunteers to restore these spaces for community recreation use.

WHEN: Saturday, November 18th, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Registration & breakfast beginning at 9:00 am, kickoff at 9:30. Work will conclude at 12:00 with lunch to follow.

WHERE: Oakland City Stables, 13560 Skyline Blvd, Oakland, CA 94619 *Please drive carefully as youth programs will be in progress.*

WHAT: Volunteers will help to preserve historic barns and outbuildings of the Oakland City Stables as well as landscape maintenance of the surrounding land.

BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants such as jeans & closed-toe shoes including boots or hard sole shoes. Please remember to layer up as it tends to be chilly in the morning and warm up throughout the day.

PROVIDED: SCA will provide breakfast and lunch along with work gloves, safety gear, and all project materials. Reusable water bottles will be provided along with water stations.

QUESTIONS: Contact Ally Ratliff, SCA Advancement Coordinator, at aratliff@thesca.org or 814-619-6972.
