Hands On Sacramento is seeking volunteers to staff an event later this month to connect needy residents with a wide variety of services.
The "We Connect" event is scheduled for Saturday, March 16 at Hiram Johnson High School, 6879 14th Ave. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
We Connect is a statewide campaign run by the California Endowment and designed to help families get access to programs that might help them lead better lives. Some of the services provided through the event will include tax preparation, help with health care applications, flu shots and dental screenings, and information about naturalization.
Hands On Sacramento needs volunteers for greeting, escorting, distributing food, and helping with parking. They also are looking for volunteers who are bilingual in Spanish, Hmong, Vietnamese and Chinese.
For information on how to volunteer, contact Richard Holderby at (916)447-7063, ext. 314 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
