Tri-Valley is committed to providing programming to our children that aligns with the National Program Thrusts. Our goal is to provide programming that affords our children the opportunity to participate in activities that promote leadership development, financial literacy, STE[A}M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math), and cultural awareness. In addition to performing community service through partnerships with local and national philanthropic organizations.
Tri-Valley mothers began a quest to implement a reading corner for the children of the San Leandro Boys and Girls Club – Jefferson Elementary after-school program. As our mission is
“To seek for all children the same advantages which we desire for our own.”
Tri-Valley mothers collected and purchased more than 500 books to build a robust library for children of all ages. In addition, mothers purchased furniture, book shelves and other supplies to ensure that the space was open, bright and inviting as well as conducive to learning. This space includes a Reading Tree that serves as the focal point of the Reading Corner. As the children read books throughout the year, they will pin leaves to the tree and our hope is to have a tree full of leaves by the end of the school year.
March of Dimes
Every year, Tri-Valley loans its support to March of Dimes. Tri-Valley mothers & daughters served as volunteers as well as a team of walkers at the annual March of Dimes Walk held in Pleasanton, CA. Team Tri-Valley raised donations online as well as donated monies on site. In November, mothers and the children will wear purple at all November activities to raise further awareness of March of Dime's mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Save the Bay
Tri-Valley Jack and Jill partnered with Save The Bay for an important community service event - restoration the wetland habitat of the MLK Shoreline. Mothers and children of all ages participated in this service project. The Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Regional Shoreline, is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District, is located in the Oakland Estuary at the southern end of San Leandro Bay. The Shoreline includes the mouths of five major creek systems and protects some of the last remaining wetland habitat in the East Bay. In addition, this 50-acre marsh provides habitat to a host of species, including the burrowing owl and the endangered California clapper rail
