Volunteer or Donate 

In lieu of handing out food, clothing or other items, please consider volunteering your time or making a donation to community organizations in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County that work to end homelessness. While reaching out directly to those in need may feel compassionate there are often unintended consequences associated with such actions. For example, if surplus items are not needed at the time, they often end up as debris in our parks, creeks and underpasses. Check with the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County for volunteer opportunities, or connect with homeless service providers to see how you can help.
