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.

Inspiring a Community of Givers on behalf of 43 Napa County nonprofits

“Thanks are the highest form of thought,

and gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” 

- Gilbert Chesterton 


We hardly know what to say. CanDo’s volunteer Give!Guide team members join with this year’s local nonprofits and all those we serve. We are so grateful for your continued and growing generosity. 

May this be a year of kindness and courage, well-being and peace, and may our actions, large and small, continue to benefit others. The total is likely to grow a bit as checks postmarked by December 31 come in.

A Day of Action and Compassion

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.
