We couldn't do it without the Gasser Foundation.
Thank you so much for your support in 2014.
  Welcome to 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 generated out of the creative interests of our members. We also spotlight exciting community events.

CanDo's  

Very First Dine and Donate

Il_Posto_crest

Il Posto Trattoria - Napa 

Monday, April 28  5-9PM

 

Il Posto Trattoria is a restaurant that celebrates family, friends, food and life the traditional Italian way. They're also a generous neighbor because just about every Monday, they host another nonprofit organization and their supporters for a Dine and Donate opportunity. On Monday, April 28, CanDo will be the fortunate recipient of that opportunity. 20% of your bill, including beverages or take-out, will go to Napa Valley CanDo.


We heartily invite you to enjoy a wonderful Italian meal with friends, then watch as the magic happens. Just bring this flyer when you come.

 

Click here for a sneak peak at the dinner menu. Then make reservations by calling 707.251.8600 or on-line through Open Table.


We'll see you there...with bells on.

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.
