If you're unable to volunteer, a food drive is also being held as part of the event.  Donations may be dropped off at the Teen Center at Pleasant Hill Park, or a Pleasant Hill Police officer will be at Grocery Outlet holding a 'Stuff the Cruiser' event.  

Additionally, the city is partnering with Contra Costa Health Services to hold a COVID-19 mobile vaccine clinic at Pleasant Hill Park. Come, drop off your food donation, and get your vaccination at the same time!
