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.
We are so excited to partner with the Seven Hills School and its students, and we’re looking forward to the activities the advisors and teachers have planned for the year. The students will be involved with our drives, as well as with the actual delivery of the goods, doing hands-on projects to see what difference they have made in the community. Pledge to Humanity is proud to partner with a school that focuses not only on academics, but with teaching kids to be compassionate people and global citizens.

We had an incredible time serving and preparing food at the Monument Crisis Center’s “Senior Moments” bi-monthly lunch!
Monument Crisis Center
Thank you so much to the amazing students and parents who helped serve dinner to seniors at the Monument Crisis Center. The seniors had a great time laughing and dancing with the students!
2014-2015 School Year
The Seven Hills School recently helped gather and donate thousands of dollars of houseware goods to the Oakland IRC to help refugees get settled in to their new homes. Thank you to all who donated and helped organize the houseware drive! We look forward to working with the IRC in the future.
Monument Crisis Center Visit
Last week, students from Allison Wash and Debby DeMaria’s classes at The Seven Hills School visited the Monument Crisis Center to help out and learn about ways to serve their community. Monument Crisis Center is a community based non-profit family resource center for Central and East Contra Costa County. Located in Concord, the Center offers nutritious food, quality resources and referrals to low-income individuals and families in order to help them become stable and secure in our community. We are proud that the Seven Hills Students are taking an interest in their community serving with such compassion!
It was a powerful morning for the Seven Hills volunteers from the McBride and Shargel advisories. The students who volunteered at the Special Olympics at Mauzy School came away more thoughtful about the fortunate lives they have and more aware of how important it is to help those living difficult lives. After some trepidation, they saw that they really could make a difference by helping at the Special Olympics. They cheered, encouraged, and helped the Mauzy students through their sports events.
Students from Mr. Davis’ and Mr. Sandberg’s Advisories visited the Sunrise Senior Center in Walnut Creek. The students played dominoes, read out loud, chatted with seniors, and listened to their stories. Some of the girls participated in a sing-a-long activity. Our favorite moment was afterwards, when one student said that the activity exceeded her expectations and she can’t wait to go back! We are so proud of the students and their kind hearts.
Students from Mrs. McBride’s eighth grade class also helped serve hundreds of meals to the needy on the streets of San Francisco. Thank you to these amazing students!
In February, Mr. Jason Davis’s eighth grade class from The Seven Hills School rode the BART down to Glide Memorial. They helped serve hundreds of meals to the needy on the streets of San Francisco. The students had such great attitudes and showed amazing compassion! They are real troopers. Thanks, Seven Hills students, for all your hard work!
The Van Wert/Davidson students delivered items from the Jean Drive. The Seven Hills School donated dozens and dozens of new and gently used jeans to Vestia, Inc. We are so proud of them!
Seven Hills made 500 sandwiches for a local shelter this month. The E.B. & Roquet advisories did another amazing job organizing the project, putting together the event, and driving the sandwiches to the shelter. Thanks to all the amazing volunteers at Seven Hills!
The Henderson & Mendez Advisories also collected Halloween candy for the foster kids at Foster a Dream. They collected several large boxes and bags of candy for the kids in their community!
Ms. Mari Weiss’ Advisory did their very first drive this year, collecting Halloween costumes for foster kids at Foster a Dream, in Martinez, CA. We are so proud of the work they have done and look forward to more projects this year!
