Chevron Partners With Xenophon For Corporate Caring Week

Perhaps the best thing that has happened to non-profits in the East Bay is Corporate Caring Week.  Sponsored by the Volunteer Center of the East Bay, in partner with Chevron, this event provides over 2,400 volunteers and over 700 volunteer hours to over 100 east bay non-profits.  Xenophon is fortunate to be one of those non-profits.  Thanks to a wonderful partnership with Chevron, we have a group come out each September to help us with needed projects.  Their visit was very timely this year, as they arrived on September 22nd, just 4 days before our big horse show.  A dedicated team of 14 volunteers installed a new feature on the sensory trail, painted our entire office building, touched up paint on the tack shed, stained the deck, weeded the planter beds, and most importantly, replaced all the wood on the lower mounting ramp, which had begun to rot.  They worked tirelessly, getting all these projects done in under 4 hours, proving yet again that many hands make short work.  A huge thank you goes to out to the Chevron volunteers who came to work.
