City of Napa Employees Helping Those in Need
Employees here at the City of Napa are taking the opportunity this holiday season to help those in need. And in more than one way!
Toys for Tots
Each year, the Napa Fire Department arranges for multiple Toys for Tots collections bins at each of the fire houses, as well as various City buildings as well. How to give: https://www.toysfortots.org/
This year, our City Wellness committee also identified two additional opportunities to help those in our community that need it most.
A donation drive was arranged to collect a varity of items for foster children transitioning into independent living, including new or lightly used clothing (with an emphasis on "job interview-ready" clothing), easy to prepare food items like Top Ramen, spagetti, etc, and hygiene items like shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, razors and more. These items will be donated to VOICES - learn more about what they do and how you can help here: https://www.voicesyouthcenter.org/what-we-do
The City partnered with NEWS, a local agency who supports families fleeing from domestic violence by helping a local family with holiday gifts. Through donations collected, the family the City will be supporting will be provided with clothing, accessories, toiletries, cleaning supplies and more, along with children's clothes and toys.
