This year’s edition of Love Oakdale, a community service work day, is on the schedule for Saturday, April 6.
Volunteers are being sought for a number of projects, with City Leader Gina McCarty urging all who are interested to get involved with the effort.
“We are doing a push for volunteers,” McCarty said. “We have lots of projects. You can go to loveoakdale.com to see our list.”
Some of the projects include Sierra View Elementary and Magnolia Elementary school work, work at the Kerr Park playground, Oakdale Airport bark placement, clean up at the Mike Grohl Community Garden, general clean up at the Oakdale Citizens Cemetery, assistance at the Oakdale Museum and History Center and more.
The website provides guidelines regarding the type of work, ages needed and how many openings are available for the different efforts.
Love Oakdale will begin with an 8 a.m. rally on April 6 at the Oakdale Community Park, 400 S. Yosemite; volunteers will mobilize from there to the individual work sites. Most projects are scheduled for completion by noon.
Also, volunteers are asked to bring a can of soup with them to the rally, for a collection of canned soups to distribute to local senior citizens. For each can of soup donated, volunteers will receive a ticket for a prize drawing.
