hos-pi-tal-i-ty noun

1. “The friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors or strangers.”
Did you know that Robert Livermore, the man whom Livermore was named after, was known for his hospitality to travelers passing through our region on their way to San Francisco? Being hospitable was not only neighborly; it was how people survived back in the day. Lucky for us, being kind seems to be a value that has stuck in our neck of the woods!

Since I’ve moved to Livermore, over twenty years ago, I’ve witnessed first-hand the generosity and compassion of the people who are drawn to live in this area. Time and again, no matter the cause, people show up to help one another. I’m blessed to live and work in such a truly beautiful, giving community. Convoy of Hope Tri-Valley is no exception to this precedent. That’s why today’s blog is here to say “Thank YOU” to our sponsors. Without you, it would not be possible for us to show hospitality to our Honored Guests.

Without our sponsors, we would not be able to turn this noun into action by providing food and services to an expected 5,000 to 7,000 deserving guests from all over the Tri-Valley and beyond. Thank you for helping Convoy of Hope Tri-Valley bring lasting change and opportunity to those in need of a little hospitality.

Many thanks go out to the following local sponsors:

  • Alameda County Fairgrounds
  • CCOP – Catholic Community of Pleasanton
  • City of Pleasanton
  • CPC – Community Presbyterian Church
  • Crosswinds Church
  • Danville Lions Club – Lions In Sight

How to Beat the Valentine’s Day Blues

Feeling a little lonely and blue? You’re not alone. Most of us feel this way from time-to-time. In my experience, the best way to bust through my “blahs” is to get out of myself and do something kind for someone else. It’s true! Random acts of kindness are good for the soul. Over the years, I have met all kinds of amazing people in the process of volunteering. I’m talking life-long friends! Right now, Convoy of Hope Tri-Valley is welcoming all volunteers. Hope starts here, with YOU!

We have something for everyone and want to make sure you are placed in just the right fit for your talents and time. Everyone has something special to bring to the table! We have room for everyone at this event, from greeting honored guests to handing out food and supplies to setup and cleanup!

Hope Starts Here
Community Unites to Bring Hope to Tri-Valley

HOPE STARTS HERE! Tri-Valley churches, businesses and organizations, along with Convoy of Hope, are partnering to bring hope to families in need.

On Thursday, January 25, 2018, several pastors from Tri-Valley churches met to collaborate on the upcoming Community Event in Tri-Valley. This day of hope is scheduled for May 5, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will bring much-needed services and service providers together with deserving people in the Tri-Valley community. The goal is to get people in need connected with assistance, which will last far beyond the one-day event.

Several churches and organizations in our community are partnering to organize and conduct this one day event to be held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California. It is anticipated that the event will serve thousands of people in need (Guests of Honor) from all over Tri-Valley. The meeting on January 25 was an important milestone in the collaboration between Crosswinds, RockBible, Graceway, New Life, The Catholic Community of Pleasanton (CCOP) Community Presbyterian Church of Danville (CPC), San Ramon Presbyterian Church and other local churches to create this event.

Chris Coli, senior pastor at Crosswinds announced, “The Convoy of Hope event is just the beginning of a long-lasting movement that has the power to transform people’s lives, inspire compassion and service, and bring people and organizations together like never before. We need 1,000 volunteers to join us at the Alameda County Fairgrounds as we serve our community. I hope you’ll be a part of what is sure to be a day to remember for the rest of our lives.”
