"A global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment" SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF WATSONVILLE extends a special "THANK YOU" TO OUR GREAT "Denim and Diamond" Donors There are a number of ways to support the proj- ect that include adopt- ing a whole family, pur- chasing individual items, volunteering in the Adopt a Family warehouse to wrap and sort gifts, or donating funds to sup- port the project. Volunteers will be at the Adopt a Family Phone Line ready to take your call until December 6th. Adopt or learn more about the project by call- ing the Adopt a Family Hotline at 831-457- 9834. "Additionally, this year we are still looking for an empty building space that is 4000 square ft. or larger to host our warehouse for collecting, sorting and distributing donations. Every year we have been fortunate to have a space donated and we are confident that a local business owner or realty company will step up once again to provide the needed space during our open hours from Dec. 10th through the 20th," states Thurston. Aside from the Adopt a Family Project there are many deserving projects and programs in Santa Cruz County in need of volunteers or financial support this holiday sea- son. "For those who want to give a meaning- ful donation, I recom- mend you hop over to www.santacruzgives.org where you're guaranteed to find a cause you care about. Santa Cruz Gives spearheaded by Santa Cruz Good Times, is your one stop shop for holi- day donations with over 30 nonprofits to choose from. You can give to one or give to many- all with one transaction," states Thurston. "One of my other fa- vorite projects is serving as a Holiday Helper with the Family Service Agency program- I You Venture," continues Thurston. Through this project individuals can become a holiday helper by giv- ing to the often forgot- ten care facility residents in the community. Many residents don't have fam- ily or friends visit them during the holidays, so they look forward to the gifts and cards provided by the Holiday Helpers. Wrapped gifts of such items as socks, blankets, scarves, calendars etc. can be dropped off at Family Service Agency of the Central Coast (104 Walnut Ave, #208 Santa Cruz, CA) from 9am to 12pm until December 6th. "The Run For Pie 5K fundraiser for 2nd Har- vest Food Bank is a great way to kick off the long Thanksgiving weekend. If you're not a runner, they are in need of volunteers to help set up the course, oversee aid stations and run the kid's Tur- key Chase at Skypark in Scott's Valley on Thanks- giving morning," states Thurston. Details are available the Volunteer Center website / holiday guide and can additionally be found at h t t p s : / / w w w. f l e e t - f e e t . c o m / s / a p t o s / community/8th-annual- run-for-pie-2019 Interested volunteers can email christine. mmtc@gmail.com or call (831) 818-3225. "The Homeless Garden Project Store in down- town Santa Cruz is al- ways a great option to buy your holiday gifts, but you are also invited to support this volunteer- run shop" states Thur- ston. The store is open from November 12th through December 6th," states Thurston. Information about all of these opportunities and more can be found in the Holiday Volunteer Guide on the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County website at www. scvolunteercenter.org. "There is something for everyone, no matter how much time or money you have to give. If you're struggling to find just the right fit for giving back, reach out to us at 831- 427-5070 or email con- nect@scvolunteercenter. org and we will help you find the perfect match for your needs and inter- ests," states Thurston. continued from C 1 To get your message out to the readers of the Santa Cruz Sentinel this upcoming holiday season, no matter what kind of business you are a part of, contact Steve Bennett at 831-429-2416 or sbennett@santacruzsentinel.com.
