Santa Rosa, CA. ~ The Volun- teer Center of Sonoma County continues to serve as a crucial resource to help support the fi re victims through volunteer matching, operating 2-1-1 and fundraising to buy new laptops for students and teachers. Doz- ens of phone-bank volunteers are focused on matching com- munity needs with volunteers who want to provide their time and donated supplies – over 5,000 volun- teers have already been processed. “The level of support from those near and afar is incredible,” says Cami Kahl, Executive Director of the Vol- unteer Center. “With over 45 years of connecting volunteers within our community, we have the resources in place to lead volunteer

efforts throughout

the county during catastrophic events.”

In collaboration with the

County of Sonoma’s Emergen- cy Offi ce of Communication and 2-1-1 Sonoma, the Volun- teer Center of Sonoma County is coordinating relief efforts to insure a centralized fl ow of in- formation and effi cient support. Call 2-1-1 for non-emer- gency assistance


if you have do-

nations of supplies to

offer. 2-1-1 Sonoma is a single source donation data- base helping effectively con- nect supplies to people in need. The Volunteer Center of So- noma County has also part- nered with the Sonoma County Offi ce of Education to assist teachers and students that have lost everything as a result of the devastating North Bay fi res. While these individu-

als are working to rebuild and acquire basic personal essen- tials, they also do not have the tools required to prepare lesson plans or school assignments. Their most immediate need – laptops, tablets and Chrome- books. Here’s how you can help: 1. Go to www.volunteer- to pledge a mon- etary donation towards new laptops.

2. New laptops/tablets/ Chromebooks may be pur- chased by you and donated to the Volunteer Center of So- noma County. 3. Gently used devices may also be donated. We can ac- cept used computers if they are in good condition, less than 3 years old, and wiped clean of your personal data. The Sonoma County Offi ce of Education will be managing the distribution of this equip- ment aligned with identity and displacement verifi cation. Donations can be mailed

or delivered in person to the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County, 153 Stony Circle, Suite 100, Santa Rosa, CA 95401. Volunteer Center offi ce hours are 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. 707-573-3399
