We care deeply about our community especially as we are all feeling the impact of COVID-19 in our community. We have launched LoveOurNeighbors.org, with the support of our county and city leaders, as the platform to help those in need during this crisis. Together we can support our community, especially those most vulnerable such as the elderly and ill.
Please share LoveOurNeighbors.org on your social media channels. Help us get the word out letting everyone in our community know how to "Get Help" and how to "Give Help" during the weeks to come!
We will get through this together!
**APRIL 18, 2020 Love Hughson Cancelled**
(Posted March 12, 2020)
After consulting with the City of Hughson, event coordinators have made the decision to cancel Love Hughson previously scheduled for April 18, 2020 due to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The health and safety of our volunteers, residents and partners is a priority. This decision was made following the Stanislaus County Public Health Department announcement of the first two confirmed cases in Stanislaus County (earlier this week) and the California Department of Public Health advising that “large gatherings that include 250 people or more should be postponed or canceled.” Thank you for your support and we look forward to continuing this wonderful community service program next year.
The purpose of the event is to encourage residents to become involved in their community by demonstrating kindness to others through service and fellowship projects. Love Hughson projects impact the lives of people in our community by uniting efforts together to meet local needs.
What to Expect at Love Hughson:
The day typically begins at the Hughson Community Senior Center (2307 4th Street) at 7:00am with a community breakfast . All volunteers are invited to share in the meal. Following the breakfast, around 8:00am, volunteers will gather outside of the Community Senior Center for a group photo before they break-up into service project teams.
Project team leaders will be wearing yellow Love Hughson T-Shirts. Projects vary and can include a canned food drive, yard clean-up projects for seniors and the disabled, alley clean-ups, store front clean-ups, planting of flowers on hanging pots along main street, painting and beautification projects at local schools and recreation areas, and youth activities for children hosted by senior residents at Samaritan Village.
Volunteers are needed to participate in making this day successful. All volunteers are encouraged to sign-up and will receive an event white Love Hughson T-Shirt at the event, if they don't have one already. Service projects are expected to be completed by Noon. A sponsored pizza luncheon is usually provided at the conclusion of the day at the Community Senior Center and all participants are invited to attend.
