Forum to connect volunteers with local community services

Have you or someone you know said, “I want to help out in my community but don’t know how? Starting September 9, then again on November 11, Hearing And Doing, a new speaker series for Central County, will offer participants an expert overview of some of the pressing social service and mercy needs in our community.

Each session meets at a location central to the topic, whether it’s literacy, hunger, aging, etc. A panel of service providers and volunteers will offer a wide range of experience and perspective. Agencies will be on hand to explain how you, or your family, office, church, or social club can get involved so you can make a difference.

The September 9 forum will discuss Literacy, and will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 at Cambridge Elementary, located at 1135 Lacey Lane, in Concord. Then, On November 11, a forum on Hunger needs in our community will be held at the Contra Costa and Solano Food Bank Warehouse, located at 4010 Nelson Avenue, Concord, from 6:30 to 8:30.
