STAY CONNECTED

Take the way you stay connected to the next level with the following tools: 

Donate Supplies for Seniors and Homeless

VESTIA is a non-profit organization that works directly with the Contra Costa County’s Employment & Human Services Department (EHSD) to provide supplemental support to individuals and families receiving benefits. Hygiene kits (travel-sized “convenience kits”), socks, and snack kits are some of the most requested items by homeless and senior clients who have trouble accessing supplies. Items can be ordered online and ship directly to VESTIA’s office. For VESTIA’s office address or to donate directly to VESTIA, visit www.vestiainc.org.  

Donate/Deliver Meals 

Vulnerable seniors are at the greatest risk amid COVID-19. Let’s help keep them safe and cared for. Contact your local Meals on Wheels organization, visit www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org

Donate Blood 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, there is an ongoing critical need for donated blood. Healthy, eligible donors are urged to come out and donate to ensure there’s lifesaving blood available for those who need it the most.
