Friends and neighbors:
For nearly 30 years, community support has been essential to the work of Friends the Fountain and Walk, the all-volunteer neighborhood nonprofit that teams with the City of Berkeley to care for the Fountain at The Circle, Fountain Walk and the surrounding historic area. That support shows up in a variety of ways, from generous donations from many to the friendly waves our volunteers get from motorists passing through The Circle.
We’d like to invite you to become one of those volunteers and join our group of neighbors who turn out once a month to do a bit of gardening and cleanup around The Circle and along the Walk. Usually held on the first Saturday of each month, it’s a friendly and fulfilling couple of hours spent weeding, raking, sweeping, etc. to keep this landmark area sparkling. No special skills are required. Tools, gloves and safety vests are provided; you just supply the elbow grease.
Individuals are welcome; so are groups that would like to do a little community service. All ages (teens and up) and abilities can join. And it’s easy to get involved: You can sign up through the “Volunteer” tab on our website, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or just show up at The Circle on the first Saturday of the month and our volunteer coordinators will put you to work.
Hope to see you around the fountain soon!
