Buying a home in South Berkeley: Neighborhood News

San Pablo Neighborhood Council Holiday Party

If you are thinking about buying a home in South Berkeley you might want to know that The San Pablo Neighborhood Council is ready to party. They are inviting the neighborhood to join them for their Holiday Party on Thursday, December 17, 2009 at 6:30pm to 8:30pm. There will be music and fun, bring your favorite holiday dish or a snack to share. The Art Room at San Pablo Park is the place.

If you are buying a house in South Berekely or for that matter in any neighborhood a good practice is to meet the people that live in the area, talk to them, ask them why they live there and what they like and don't like about the neighborhood. Find out about crime, friendliness etc. Talking to nighbors is, in my opinion, the best way to learn about a neighborhood.

The Berkeley Police Department and Berkeley Boosters Association/P.A.L. is hosting a holiday turkey basket distribution to selected needy families. Volunteers will meet on Wednesday, December 23, 2009 at 6:30 a.m., in front of the Police Department to help assemble 250 food baskets. The gift of giving starts with you!

For more information, contact Jen Louis via Email or phone at 981-5990 X4212.

The Berkeley Fire and Police Departments along with the United States Marines Toys for Tots Foundation, needs your help in providing donations for the Toys for Tots Program. Collection barrels have been placed in all fire stations and each station will collect toys until December 25, 2009. New and unwrapped toys collected before December 19 will be used for the Toys for Tots program. Toys collected from December 19 to December 25 will be distributed to homeless shelters assisting families.

Toys will be distributed on Saturday, December 19 at the Public Safety Building by the Berkeley Police Department to families that have pre-registered through the Toys for Tots program. Registration ends December 16, 2009.

For other information and toy barrel pick up, please contact Firefighter Tony Hall via Email or Lieutenant John Tarascio, via Email or at 510-981-5520.
