Volunteers and donations of school supplies are needed for the Aug. 29 running of “Walk to Nature” event in Richmond, a free event promoting physical activity among local families as well as a stronger connection to the outdoors.
About ‘Walk to Nature’:
At 9:30 a.m. Aug. 29, several hundred community members are expected to gather at the Richmond Greenway at 6th and Ohio streets and then set off on a 2.2-mile journey to Keller Beach at Miller Knox Regional Shoreline in Point Richmond, according to a report from the nonprofit For Richmond.
At Keller Beach, participants will be rewarded with a free taco lunch, exciting games and activities and swimming in the Bay, the nonprofit said. Free T-shirts, water bottles and back-to-school giveaways will also be part of the day’s fun. Those unable to complete the walk can meet up at Keller Beach.
Buses will return participants to the starting point at 6th and Ohio at 2 p.m., and the event ends at 3 p.m.
The event is hosted by Youth Enrichment Strategies (YES).
Volunteers and Donations:
Volunteering and the donations of school supplies are highly encouraged. For those who want to volunteer, you must RSVP here to attend a mandatory orientation, which will take place Thursday from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Volunteers can also contact and RSVP to Nancy Barba@email@example.com.
Also, to donate to the back to school giveaway, there are two bins: One at the Richmond Police Department at 1701 Regatta Blvd, Richmond and another on the third floor of City Hall in the City Manager’s office, 450 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 300. School supplies can also be donated at the YES office at 3029 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond.
