NAPA VALLEY CanDo
What They Do:
Create this Give!Guide to raise funds and awareness for local nonprofits. Ease the path from intent to action to promote volunteerism. Fight hunger by growing organic produce for the Food Bank. Orchestrate the Napa Food Project to collect non-perishable food donations year-round. Clean Napa waterways. Offer non-partisan public forums. Led successful efforts to limit single-use plastic bags county-wide.
CanDo has no membership requirements, no dues, and no mandatory service hours. We meet together only as needed. Instead, a weekly email, “The CanDo Connection,” highlights done-in-a-day volunteer projects and community events and helps keep members in touch.
Projects are selected based on members’ creative energies and interests. When a potential project arises, CanDo members always begin by educating themselves and researching efforts that may already be in place. We have no desire to duplicate others’ activities. But when we tackle an unmet community need, we move forward with purpose. For instance, CanDo’s newest endeavor, the Napa Food Project, has delivered more than 60,000 pounds of non-perishable food to the Food Bank since June 2016.
Mechanics Bank, a supporter of CanDo in many ways and a “Give!Guide Guardian,” will match the first $500 dollars in donations through the Guide.
