"Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go..."
Members of our Rotary Club painted the interior of the counseling rooms at SAVE headquarters between Monday, Sept 11 and Thursday, Sept 14.    The interior rooms of the counseling center at SAVE were originally painted in egg-yolk yellow and needed a fresh coat of paint.  So we volunteered to pitch in and do the painting project. 
Using 21 gallons of beige paint and sage paint donated by Kelly Moore through efforts of Lexi Padilla and the Girls Scouts from troop #30797, the Rotarians provided 160 hours of volunteer time to paint the inside of the 2500 sq. foot counseling center.  
SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments) is a non-profit organization addressing the needs of domestic violence victims in Alameda County.   SAVE headquarters are located at 1900 Mowry Ave, Fremont.   SAVE has dozens of shelters, emergency call centers, and counseling centers for women and children throughout Alameda County.
Lexi Padilla is a member of Girl Scout troop #30797.  Lexi is working on her ‘gold’ service star.
