More than 350 local residents spent Saturday offering a helping hand.
The event, held in Pleasanton, was a statewide annual day of service called "Mormon Helping Hands."
Hundreds of members from six Dublin and Pleasanton congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, including individuals and families, volunteered Saturday morning to work on projects in Pleasanton.
Projects included painting, weeding, spreading bark and general maintenance at parks, school sites and City of Pleasanton buildings.
The group spread 250 yards of bark in Val Vista Park, weeded areas at Pleasanton Middle School and painted trim at Alviso Adobe, among other projects.
More than 40,000 volunteers in all parts of the state, from San Diego to Eureka, participated in the event.
