    With Amma’s San Ramon programs coming up in less than three weeks, there are plenty of ways you can serve at M.A. Center! Come and serve on a seva day , or adopt a project as your way to contribute. It’s a busy and happy time here at the Center, so come and join in the service and good spirits.
    This is also a perfect time to connect with one of the many local volunteer teams that serve at M.A. Center, San Ramon during Amma’s programs. Whatever your abilities or interests, there is a team for you. Here are just a few of the teams you can serve with during the programs:
