Sonoma Valley needs a whole new volunteer force. Now, right at the time that our Valley urgently needs an army of volunteers to help address critical needs for food and assistance, people over 60 need to avoid being close to other people.
In an unprecedented effort, Sonoma Valley’s organizations—governments, businesses, and nonprofits—can come together to recruit younger volunteers and meet our community’s needs.
Led by the Sonoma Ecology Center and Sustainable Sonoma, in partnership with the City of Sonoma and the Sonoma Valley Food Security Task Force, Sonoma Valley Volunteers was launched to help match community organizations with volunteers to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Sonoma Valley Volunteers will be regularly updated with new volunteer opportunities.
“When we work together, we accomplish far more. Sonoma Valley organizations have experience in serving our community during disasters. While the length of this pandemic is unknown, the commitment to our community is certain. Together, we can flatten the curve, inspire a new generation of volunteers, and ensure that the needs of our non-profits are taken care of”.
— Logan Harvey, Mayor of the City of Sonoma
