Googlers are encouraged to do community service and there are have been a couple of opportunities since we’ve been here. We missed the first one — a beach cleanup day — because it was the weekend we traveled to SoCal. But we were around on September 20th for a cleanup of the San Francisquito Creek. We started in East Palo Alto with a bevy of other volunteers, many of whom were high school students doing their community service.
Altogether, the group cleaned up a lot of trash; this is just a fraction of it. I was shocked at the stuff that lined the creek bed.
It was a lot of walking for the boys, but a good experience for sure. And there were donuts, their favorite part.
