Hats off to all of the Caring Hands volunteers who do so much for our community. The company opened stores March 16 in Concord, at Clayton and Ygnacio Valley roads, and March 23 in Walnut Creek, at Ygnacio Valley Road and San Carlos Drive. And while that is appreciated by shoppers, there is more to the story. “Fresh & Easy donates $1,000 to a local charity at every grand opening,” said Jillian Cardwell, public relations. The recipient of the $1,000 contribution in Concord was Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa.

On Wednesday, September 15, Jessie left the shop after borrowing $2 to get something to eat at Dairy Queen. Jessie told his dad he’d be back the next day for his paycheck. He didn’t show. On Friday, Jimmy’s brother came into the shop to say they’d found a boy dead over at Jack’s house in Scott Depot. It looked like an overdose. Jimmy couldn’t imagine what that had to do with him until he registered the look on his brother’s face. “Jimmy,” his brother said, “they think it’s Jessie.”.
