Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, located in Palo Alto California has an ongoing need for volunteers over the age of 18 willing to make a 2 hour weekly commitment to make friendly visits. These visits may include just a friendly chat or help with sorting and organizing client papers, reading mail, organize materials and running errands if possible. There are clients of Vista Center located from South San Francisco to Gilroy.
If you have the transportation, time and interest please go the organization's website at www.vistacenter.org where you will see a button on the home page directing you to an application. Once you submit your application you will be interviewed at our Palo Alto office and then asked to do a fingerprint scan at the organization's expense. After that we will do our best to match you with one of our clients who have requested a volunteer.
Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering.
