Come join us and clean up the community!  The River Life Foundation will be hosting a clean up from 9AM to 12PM, the first weekend of August.  Those wishing to help can meet at the Redwood Village Shopping Center, near the parking lot between the Shell Station and McDonalds.

Please bring sturdy shoes, protective clothing (including gloves and long sleeves if you're susceptible to poison oak), and a positive attitude!  We will supply the tools you need to get the job done.

Thank you for your support!  Together we can make a difference!

Questions?  Please call Sean at 707-362-9384.

River Life recently had the pleasure of helping Steven get back to his friends and family in West Virginia.  When Steven gets back, he has a potential job lined up.  He just needed a little help and someone believing in him. Total cost of the ticket and travel - $375.  Total cost of someone starting over - priceless.
