About Community Day

On Saturday, June 4, 2022, Lafayette Community Foundation, in partnership with the City of Lafayette and the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, presented Lafayette Community Day, the first of its kind!

Did you know that volunteers power Lafayette? Much of what makes us “Love Lafayette” happens through countless hours of volunteerism. This first annual event was a celebration of what makes Lafayette so special!

Photos will be posted soon! If you have photos from the day, upload them here!

 

Volunteers 

VOLUNTEERS HELPED OUR COMMUNITY

There was something for everyone with projects and activities in the focus areas of human services, youth development and education, seniors, arts and culture, diversity and kindness, and town beautification. All ages were welcome to participate in the art projects. Volunteers for other work projects need to be at least 12 years of age. Individuals under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Kindness Art Projects 

Two Art Projects Celebrated Kindness and Compassion

Things were buzzing as the public was invited to craft beautiful bees and then stick them on window posters (created by Mindful Littles) around town — reminding us all to the “Bee the Change” in treating each other with kindness and compassion. This is a project of Lamorinda Arts Council and Mindful Littles.

Meanwhile, residents of all ages painted kindness messages on river rocks to be placed at the Community Center. This activity will take place from 10 am – 2 pm on the green at Plaza Park thanks to LPIE and Lafayette Senior Services Commission.

All ages are welcome to participate in the art projects as long as children are supervised by an adult.
