Are you a North County resident looking to give a little back to the community? Looks like Saturday is your lucky day! North County Community Services is sponsoring the "North County Cares" event to benefit local children.
The non-profit organization has two primary goals this year. First, to rebuild and rejuvenate the playgrounds at four child development centers. Next, to plan and install vegetable gardens at the centers. The accomplishment of these goals will pay huge dividends for the kids. The playgrounds are used every day, and the gardens help teach them the importance of good nutrition.
No need to bring any tools. North County Community Services has everything taken care of. The event takes place Saturday, May 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You can volunteer either in Oceanside or Escondido.
