Ceres will continue to run our after-school youth development program at this site, training youth to prepare nutritious meals that we deliver to our neighbors facing a health challenge like cancer. At the Dream Center, we also have a catering service and a garden. We welcome youth and adult volunteers, and hope you'll join us at an upcoming monthly volunteer orientation (The next one will be March 21 https://connect.ceresproject.org/events/).
We're truly grateful to the members of Redwood Riders motorcycle club, who stopped by this week to make a donation (their 4th in as many years). Thank you for your generosity to Ceres, our clients and youth program participants!!
