City of Walnut Creek Community Service Day, Saturday October 12, 2019
In conjunction with the City of Walnut Creek Annual Community Service Day, this is a day to help contribute to the overall beautification of the Walnut Acres Elementary campus. Projects vary each year based on need but generally include litter pick-up, gardening, painting and playground clean-up. Come with all ages and an openness to tackle a project big or small to make our school even more beautiful! Sign up is through the City of Walnut Creek as will be shared once it is available.

Toy and Clothing Drive, December 2019 
Every holiday season Walnut Acres reaches out to the larger community with our Annual Toy and Clothing Drive benefiting Shore Acres Elementary School. We accept donations of gently used toys and clothing, then volunteers (adults and kids!) spend a weekend sorting the donations before delivering the 10+ carloads to Shore Acres Elementary.   

Food Drive benefiting MDUSD HOPE Pantry, March 2020
In the spring Walnut Acres collects nonperishable Open and Eat food items for the MDUSD HOPE Food Pantry.  MDUSD Homeless Outreach Program for Education (HOPE) is a district-wide program serving legally homeless children and their families. HOPE offers assistance with transportation to/from school, meals, and assistance to obtain health care and needed services. The Food Pantry provides food to many families in need within our school district.

Darcie Jones Book Drive, May 2020
This community service drive was named after Darcie Jones, a Walnut Acres parent who started a book drive in the Spring of 1994 to benefit the summer reading program at Meadow Homes Elementary School in Concord. After she died of cancer on December 31, 1996, the PFC renamed the book drive “The Darcie Jones Book Drive” and planted a tree outside the 3rd grade wing in honor of all that she had contributed to Walnut Acres Elementary School. 

Open House Festival Bake Sale benefiting MDUSD HOPE: May 2020
Bake Sale will be held at the Open House Festival  with all proceeds benefiting the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD)  Homeless Outreach Program for Education (HOPE). HOPE is a district-wide program serving legally homeless children and their families. HOPE offers assistance with transportation to/from school, meals, and assistance obtaining health care and other services. Bakers, we need your help supplying delicious goodies! Non-bakers, we need your help selling! Watch for the Konstella announcement to sign up to bring baked goods or work a shift at the Bake Sale.
