Event Highlights: The White Pony Express COMMENT FROM THE CLUB PRESIDENT: "What an interesting performance!" - Gisela Tolentino The White Pony Express By Samuel Chen On August 10th 2019, Key Clubbers Samuel Chen and Alexis Fell helped out at the Pleasant Hill White Pony Express. There, the members worked in conjunction with volunteers from other high schoolers to help sort and organize food, weigh pallets, unload truckloads of food, and many other jobs to help the organization run smoothly. In a span of two hours, Mr. Chen and Ms. Fell were able to help unload two to three trucks worth of food that included everything from Starbucks desserts, to organic eggs, all being sorted out to be distributed to multiple shelters and organizations. The operation was mostly coordinated with the help of experienced adults who helped lead the high school volunteers. While food was what that day was focused on, it is by no means the only thing White Pony Express does. They provide food, clothing, shoes, toys and books to those in need and split those between distributors who can bring them to communities that need them. In addition to the storage space we worked in to sort out food, there are additional buildings that house tons of toys, clothes, and books when not needed. Over 70,000 people have been served either directly or indirectly through their services all across Contra Costa County, and their reach expands more each year. More than 1 in 10 people who live in our local area live below the poverty line, and they might not be able to get regular sustenance and important items like shoes, which is why groups like White Pony Express are so important. It is extremely rewarding to help out groups like this because despite the physical work and long hours, we have the satisfaction of making a direct impact on the local community through making sure organizations like Christ Community and GRIPS get the food and items they need to serve the needy in Contra Costa County. The White Pony Express featured here can be found on 2280 Vincent Rd, Pleasant Hill, CA.
