My Favorite Neighborhoods

Walnut Creek is comprised of over 50 small and large neighborhoods, some dating back to the 1940s. The unique neighborhoods range from quaint and eclectic with tree-lined streets to neighborhoods tucked up next to Walnut Creek's Open Spaces sharing streets and sidewalks with wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife.
Walnut Creek has a fabulous condo and townhome market, many with easy access to the downtown and major transit centers. Rossmoor, a gated community, for adults over 55, is a great example of new builds combining luxury custom homes and condos within the same neighborhood.

"Just imagine what you can accomplish when enthusiastic volunteers come together to help your organization. People will be ready, excited, and energized to roll up their sleeves and help the community."

I'm a proud sponsor of a neighborhood food drive benefitting the Food Bank of Contra Costa/Solano. And my little neighborhood collected more food than any other local drive! (It might have been the adorable faces of my crew!)

When a little bird told us that Monument Crisis Center was OUT of pasta, we knew we had to help. We put together a "pasta drive" on social media to garner enough donations to equal "a pound of pasta" per a "pound of Doug." Our expectations were far exceeded when donations provided enough cash for 388 pounds of pasta for the holidays. See it unfold ...

And for all of the hard work exhibited by the Monument Crisis Center crew, a #FreeLunch seemed like an appropriate gesture of thanks!
