We are a group of families with young children ranging from newborns to early school age. We meet almost every month, alternating when we can between a service-based activity and something more social.
We have gone to the zoo, played at Heritage Park splash pad, served dinner to 30 homeless guests at South Oakland Shelter, gone apple and pumpkin picking, put on a bake sale to provide Christmas gifts to families in need, and we even have a yearly dinner party for the parents.
In December, we have a Christmas party complete with crafts for the kids. We also support one another in whatever ways we can, this year mostly in the form of dinners delivered when new babies arrived! The kids in the group love to play together, and the parents love to discuss the challenges and triumphs of raising young children.
