In Sonoma, Marin, Solano, and Napa Counties, Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) + the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County (VCSC) operate Emergency Volunteer Centers and/or help with emergency evacuations. We work with government and nonprofit agencies to gather and assess community needs on an ongoing basis when a disaster strikes. Additionally, we help oversee and manage physical and monetary donations by distributing them to nonprofit agencies helping individuals directly affected
(read our press release to learn more).
During an emergency and once activated, CVNL + VCSC will set up Emergency Volunteer Center hubs where spontaneous volunteers will be guided by EVC members through a training process and, ultimately, to a productive support role.
