?The Milpitas Cares network of caring individuals,? says Cheryl Jordan, superintendent of Milpitas Unified School District, ?who come together to volunteer their Saturday time for our students and staff are true leaders in our community. They are integral to our mission in building a ?Culture of WE? for the sake of our children?and for that we are grateful!?
Over the past five years, Milpitas Cares has completed hundreds of service projects at virtually every school, park, recreation area, and with every community service group in Milpitas. They have also held various collections for those in need in the community and across the globe, providing coats, sweaters, blankets, and more.
Milpitas Cares has grown substantially, with 541 volunteers stepping forward in last year?s event. A dozen Milpitas area churches back up the program by organizing logistics and providing resources. Milpitas schools, the City, and community service groups provide many of the projects undertaken by Milpitas Cares volunteers.
This year there 18 events at various sites. Make sure you go to www.MilpitasCares.org and click on the Ways to Care page, which will list all the project sites available with dates and times.
At www.MilpitasCares.org visitors to the site can view a large collection of videos and photos including a recap of last year?s Milpitas Cares on the home page.
