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 personnal 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 abilites.

 
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.

Hearty congratulations to this year’s nonprofit participants! 

CanDo’s 2018 Napa Valley Give!Guide 

These terrific Napa County organizations include 13 that did not

appear in the 2017 edition. Of these, ​​marked with an asterisk,

eight are participating in the Guide for the very first time.  

Some participants are household names; others may be brand

new to you. All work diligently to make life even better for 

those of us fortunate enough to live in the Napa Valley. 

All are worthy of your support.


 

November 1 – December 31, 2018


You make a choice. You make a difference. We make it easy.

CanDo's Napa Food Project

 

How is it that there are people in the Napa Valley

who don't have enough to eat? 

   Take a look at this 3 minute video to learn more.


There are two ways to be involved:

1.  Neighborhood Coordinator -  Organize a small group of neighbors to be Food Donors. Each donor gets a reusable Napa Food Project (NFP) bag to store food in. Every two months you pick up their full bag, leave them an empty one, and bring all the bags you collect to a drop-off point where CanDo volunteers receive it. You also send out a two reminders to your Donors during the two months so they don't forget the pickup date. That's all there is to it.

2.  Food Donor - Neighbors give a bag of food every two months. It's incredibly easy, because we supply the bag...and we pick up the food! This provides food pantries with a steady, year-round supply of food and provides donors with the ongoing satisfaction of making a real difference. People also get to know their neighbors, which builds a powerful sense of community. So everyone wins. 

 

Sign up for either at NapaFoodProject.org



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