A few words from Pledge to Humanity:
I like to think of Pledge to Humanity as a bridge between the children in our community and those in need here and all around the world.
Equally important is the gift of empowering our children to share of themselves and understand the true meaning of giving and personally making a difference in the lives of others.
Lend a Hand Day
Thank you to all the boys who volunteered to help the community of Danville by doing yard work for seniors in our community on Saturday morning. There were 154 volunteers from our community and 24 senior homes that were cleaned up by crews. We really appreciate our leader Mike for coming out and organizing the boys and providing all the tools.
The boys were amazing how they worked as a team and cleared a hillside of branches and weeds. We also met and talked to the 97 year old home owner, who shared her story. All the boys listened intently and seemed to really feel good about volunteering.

Making Chemo Care Packages for Children’s Hospital Oakland
The newly formed Seven Hills Pledge to Humanity Ambassador Group kicked off their first activity by putting together chemo care packages for Children’s Hospital Oakland. Davis Dow and Matthew Longstreet spearheaded the project and guided the 8 members in assembling sport cinch sacks full of comfort items for children undergoing chemotherapy.
Each boy personalized the bags by including a picture of themselves as well as a note that included facts about their age, school and favorite things. The boys assembled 24 packages that were delivered to the pediatric oncology department at Children’s Hospital Oakland. The administrator was incredibly touched by the boys’ efforts and said how excited the kids would be to receive them. This project provided a meaningful way for the boys to make a positive impact on the life of a child undergoing chemotherapy.
Making Care Packages for Children at Local Hospitals
Well, the children are off to a good start with the first Pledge to Humanity project on 2/7/2017. They had a quick snack before they start to ensemble their care kits and wrote a note for the children in hospital care. The parents will deliver the packages to local hospitals.
