The City of Santa Rosa has launched a new website to make it easier

for you to get involved in your city: srcity.org/volunteersantarosa

The website organizes existing volunteer opportunities throughout City

departments and offers a process for:

• Finding a volunteer position

• Locating an event where you and your family can volunteer together for the day

• Proposing a project, something that you see needs to be done around Santa Rosa

• Becoming a partner with the City to make something happen

• Donating to the funding of an important service that city offers.

“As the Santa Rosa City Council we are delighted to introduce you to our newly organized city volunteer and

partnership program. Sonoma County has a rich history of volunteering and the City is proud to be a part of

that tradition. While we have been engaging volunteers in a variety of programs for many years, VOLUNTEER

SANTA ROSA creates a portal to welcome and aid you in getting involved with your community in a way that

is meaningful and appropriate for you.

In these difficult financial times, VOLUNTEER SANTA ROSA is a way to leverage your tax dollar and join

together in partnership in addressing the needs of our community. We invite your participation. Together we can

make our community the place we all want it to be”.

~ Santa Rosa City Council

Your Community needs you!

The website also links to other volunteer opportunities found through the

Volunteer Center, the County’s Volunteer Program, and California Volunteers.

Working in partnership with the Volunteer Center,

VOLUNTEER SANTA ROSA is an important new resource for getting

involved in your community.

Questions? Email us at volunteersantarosa@srcity.org.
