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.

                                                                                                         Hilary, Grania, Mike Thompson

 

Congressman Mike Thompson, Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, and a representative of Senator Lois Wolk presented the honors to Grania Lindberg and Hilary Zunin who received the award on behalf of our grassroots community service group. We're proud as punch! One day, we may even have a wall on which to mount this beautiful and very classy plaque along with certificates from the U.S. Congress, State Assembly, and State Senate.

 

None of it could have happened without you, the CanDo members who understand something of the power, enrichment, and responsibility of community service.

 

In a wonderful celebration Sunday at Kennedy Park, the Democrats of Napa Valley Club and the Napa Valley Democratic Central Committee also honored the following:

 

~  Napa Emergency Women's Services (Nonprofit)
~  Napa Valley Adult Education Program (Education)
~  Parham Design (Business)

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.
