Orange County, CA Volunteer Opportunities

Posted on July 29, 2007. Filed under: OC Charities, Orange County things to do |

This summer our Saddleback small group decided to volunteer with Orangewood childrens home.  Orangewood had some great one time volunteer opportunities so I figured I would blog and get the word out 🙂 

ChildspreeLast week we refereed, kept score, and served food at Orange High School for a 3-3 basketball tournament.  Today we got up waaay too early (but it was worth it) for a program called “childspree”, sponsored by Orangewoods Jaycees foundation.  Basically kids in need got to go on a shopping spree at Mervyns in Foothill Ranch.  It was a really nice setup… each child got a book bag stuffed with a ton of supplies, and then they got to go into Mervyns and buy up to $100 worth of school clothes.  Each child had a volunteer personal shopper to help them find their sizes and styles.  I helped a boy named Andrew he got some really nice clothes and shoes.  They have lots of great sales right now! 

ChildspreeFoothill Ranch Dennys provided a a hash brown and egg breakfast for everyone, Starbucks donated coffee, FHR Police and Fire Dept stopped in, and there was a bounce house for the kids too. If you would like to get involved next year just get in touch with Sarah Whittenberg-Hawe @ 714-329-7521 or email mstrssyrah@aol.com .

Foothill Ranch is the “newer” area of Lake Forest, and it currently has 110 active properties ranging from 285K – 1.3M.  It’s a very clean, well planned city, and it reminds me a bit of Aliso Viejo.  We highly recommend it to first time buyers because you can get a newer property for a reasonable price.  Currently there are 20 properties below 400K available – let us know if you would like to see any of these and we would be happy to schedule an appointment.
