Hillcrest Volunteers Participate in Interfaith Mother’s Day Project

On Sunday, May 7th, several Hillcrest youth and adults joined with volunteers from Beth Chaim Congregation in Danville, the Pleasanton Islamic Center, and First Christian Church of Concord to fill hygiene bags for women and their families who are struggling during this difficult time. The hygiene bags will be distributed at the Monument Crisis Center throughout the week.

Cheryl DeSimone with the Monument Crisis Center’s Faith Community told the group of volunteers, “The necessities we take for granted, such as a toothbrush for each member of the family, are often luxuries that many families can’t afford. These gift bags will be greatly appreciated by all recipients. “

Many thanks to all who volunteered for this worthwhile project!
