Boys team Charity joined a small group of volunteers from Lamorinda Village providing aid to elders whose homes were endangered by flooding due to the heavy rainfall in January. The volunteers filled, delivered, and installed over 50 sandbags. Lamorinda Village is a nonprofit whose goal is to support seniors who wish to age in place by matching them with volunteers. Boys Team Charity Orinda and Lamorinda are local chapters of a national service organization comprised of young volunteers and their parents who work together to provide aid within their communities.
The teens from BTC and their families went above and beyond to help the seniors prepare for the onslaught of rain, going to multiple locations to find bags and sand and even purchasing bags of soil to use for sandbags. Village member Angie Bailie wrote after the storms to say,?"Dave and I cannot thank Vanessa and her family enough for their help. They brought us eight very large bags of bark in an attempt to alleviate some flooding in my garage before the next big storm. Their help could not have come at a better time. The boys were polite, friendly and worked very hard to help in the entire process. We also want Lamorinda Village, BTC, anyone else who needs to know how very grateful we were to receive this help from such a lovely family doing such good to help others!"
