RESOURCE & MONETARY DONATION OPPORTUNITIES
YOLO COUNTY FOOD BANK
For nearly 50 years, Yolo Food Bank has elevated the common good for the people and communities of Yolo County by fighting food insecurity. Founded as a volunteer-run backyard gleaning program, the Yolo Food Bank has grown to an organizational network of staff, volunteers and nearly 70 partner agencies. We coordinate the storage and distribution of food from a network of growers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and grocery stores, while simultaneously cultivating new sources of food. By collaborating with non-profit programs, private and public sector agencies and service organizations throughout Yolo County, we provide this food to 55,000 people in 19,000 households each month, distributing more than 4 million pounds of food annually.
We have a great opportunity to support Empower Yolo and hundreds of other non-profits in our region during the Big Day of giving on Thursday, May 7, 2020. The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online campaign to help raise unrestricted funds for non-profits in our community.
The Big Day of Giving is part of our overall plan to raise $100,000 by June 30, 2020 to support survivors and families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic as our need to provide services has greatly increased. Empower Yolo is serving survivors of abuse, families in need and the homeless at a high rate.
YIIN (the Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network) is a group of people serving and advocating for immigrants in Yolo County. We believe that by working together we can make our community a better place for all of us to live and thrive.
The new COVID-19 Relief Initiative provides resources to help the essential work of Yolo nonprofits during this unprecedented crisis. Yolo County’s nonprofits care for the most vulnerable in the community and enrich the fabric of the Yolo community through a wide range of programs that support, teach, and connect.
I-House is a social gathering space where people from all over the world come together. It is a place dedicated to embracing differences, cultivating joy, combating isolation and creating a better future grounded in cultural equity. While we cannot gather at our beloved I-House in person, our commitment to social good and community vibrancy has not wavered. We are providing virtual gathering opportunities and preparing to re-open in a responsible way when the shelter-in-place order is lifted. We miss you and we look forward to seeing you online and at I-House soon.
STEAC's purpose is to provide immediate, short-term emergency aid to families and individuals with incomes at or below the federal poverty level who live in Yolo County. Assistance includes providing help with food, rental, utility and job readiness. Since 1967, STEAC has provided a critical safety net for those whose needs cannot be met by other charitable or government agencies. For needy residents, it is often the agency of last resort for assistance.

Please Schedule Your appointment to give blood at a Vitalant location nearby. Dr. Peter Marks from the Food and Drug Administration has stated: “We need people to start turning out in force to give blood.” If you are healthy, please give blood. While agencies are advising people to avoid “gatherings” blood donation operations—at blood drives and donation centers—are not gatherings but essential health care activities. Not having enough blood to meet basic patient needs will cause another public health crisis.
Yolo Diaper Bank staff and volunteers are working remotely to meet the needs of Yolo County families. Our location in Woodland's County Fair Mall is closed, but we have access to our diaper storage. We are working closely with our partner agencies to meet their needs during this difficult time. We expect the need for diapers to increase dramatically over the coming months and are requesting financial donations to meet that need.
