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.

CanDo SPIRIT AWARD
Nominations Accepted Through June 30

The CanDo Spirit Award, part of Napa Valley CanDo's Napa Valley Give!Guide campaign, celebrates exceptional work performed by one young, full-time employee working in the Napa County nonprofit sector. Applications for the 2017 CanDo Spirit Award will be accepted through June 30. 

Since its inception in 2013, the CanDo Spirit Award has been generously sponsored by the Napa Valley Vintners. The winner receives a plaque and a check for $1000.00. They will be honored at the Give!Guide's Kick-off Celebration this November. The event is free and open to the public.

Every nonprofit agency in Napa County, whether they are involved in the Give!Guide or not, is eligible to nominate one outstanding employee. Nominees must be age 30 or younger as of November 1, 2017. Full-time is defined as working at least 25 hours per week for one year.

The on-line application has two parts:  one to be completed by the nominating nonprofit employer and one for the nominee. Details and the two-part Spirit Award application may be found on the Napa Valley Give!Guide website.

 

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.
