Love Hughson was inspired by the Love Our Cities initiative a few years ago. It started small but has quickly become a large annual gathering where residents and partner agencies come together for the betterment of the community.
The purpose of the event is to encourage our residents to become involved in their community by demonstrating kindness towards others through service and fellowship projects. Through these projects, we strive to impact the lives of people in our community by uniting our efforts together to meet the needs of individuals and businesses in our community of Hughson.
The day typically begins at the Hughson Community Senior Center at 7:00am with a community breakfast sponsored by the local Knights of Columbus. All volunteers are invited to share in the meal. Following the breakfast, around 8:00am, volunteers will break-up into service project teams. Our projects have included a canned food drive benefiting the United Samaritan’s Foundation, yard clean-up projects for seniors and disabled in our community, alley and Santa Fe Railroad corridor clean-ups, trash and store front clean-ups along main street, Hughson School District beautification projects, tree planting at the Hughson Sports and Fitness Complex, and youth crafting and story-telling activities for children hosted by residents at Samaritan Village.
Love Hughson is always in need of volunteers to participate in making this day successful. All volunteers are encouraged to sign-up online at www.lovehughson.com, by clicking on the “View Projects” link. Service projects are expected to be completed by around 12:00pm. A lunch is sometimes provided as well through our generous sponsors.
Monetary donations for Love Hughson are accepted at the Hughson Family Resource Center located at 2940 Hughson Avenue, Hughson, CA 95326 (Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm).
