Napa Valley CanDo brings together people from all over the Napa Valley who want to help our communities thrive through volunteerism and community action.  

Choices We Make

Napa Valley CanDo seeks to inspire and facilitate action by alerting interested Valley residents about opportunities for service. If you participate as a volunteer in an activity that you learned about through Napa Valley CanDo, whether initiated by CanDo or another organization, please take personal responsibility for your involvement. Use common sense. Only you can determine whether the activity is a good fit, that is to say compatible with your interests and abilities.

 
Napa Valley CanDo
A vibrant grassroots community service organization!
 
 
Napa Valley CanDo brings together people from all over the Napa Valley who want to help our communities thrive through volunteerism and community action. We're strong, creative, and growing quickly! We have no dues and no required service hours. We don't even meet on a regular basis as a whole.
 
What do we do? We feature "done-in-a-day" and family-friendly volunteer opportunities. Some of these come at the request of local nonprofits seeking volunteers. Others are based on CanDo's own projects which grow out of the interests of our members as we identify unmet community needs. We also spotlight exciting community events.

Alphabet Soup:  the new language of sexual and gender identity 

 

Tuesday, June 6

7:00 - 9:00 PM

Napa County Library

 

LGBTQ Connection, PFLAG Napa, and Napa Valley CanDo celebrate Pride Month by collaborating in an exciting forum on our rapidly evolving understanding of sexual and gender identity and the language we use to describe it.

 

Says Eliseo Rivas, Program Coordinator for LGBTQ Connection, "This forum is for anyone who wants to engage the idea that there can be diverse genders and sexualitites - more than straight or gay, more than man or woman."

 

Rosemarie Vertullo, President of PFLAG Napa says, "We're proud to support this vital forum to educate the community on LGBTQ and gender identity. June is Pride Month and it is an important time for us to reflect on our acceptance of our entire community and its diversity."

 

DAY/DATE/TIME:  Tuesday, June 6, 7:00 - 9:00 PM

LOCATION:  Napa Co. Library, 580 Coombs St., Napa

YOU  WANT  TO  HELP...

WE  MAKE  IT  EASY... 

How is it that anyone in the Napa Valley
doesn't have enough to eat?

Make a powerful and positive difference. Just a couple of hours every other month. Come on...you CanDo it! 

Once you establish your "neighborhood" (and the size is up to you), you'll:

1) send a couple of email or text reminders to your donors,
2) pick-up the bright green bags of donations that they leave outside their front door, and
3) transport those donations to the Napa Food Bank.

Once you arrive, we'll unload your car for you.
Then we'll present you with new supplies, a snack, a smile, and our thanks.

Take a look at the video.
