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.

Click here to see CanDo's weekly eNewsletter with community events, playful tidbits, and volunteer opportunities. It's called The CanDo Connection.

Every Saturday is a Big Give Day at the Give!Guide!

Donate through the Give!Guide on any Saturday, any amount, to any nonprofit(s) and have a chance to receive one of five incentive gifts each worth $100 or more.

 

That's five incentive prizes every Saturday! Each local nonprofit participating in CanDo's 2016 Napa Valley Give!Guide offers one of these incentives.

 

Saturday donors' names are entered into a random opportunity drawing. If you name is drawn, you'll be contacted directly by the nonprofit that offered the incentive to arrange for delivery.

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.
