Adopt A Family Database and Tech Support

The Adopt a Family program provides clothing, toys, and food to over 400 of Santa Cruz County's neediest families during the holiday season. We are looking for volunteers to help with this project.

Volunteer Duties include: Entering Family Adoption information into our databases to ensure we have all the necessary information when donors begin calling in to adopt families. This organizing is critical to ensure the project gets off to a great start with all the essential information in the correct places. After the project is launched volunteers keep track of adoptions, enter this year's donor information into our database, and indicate which families have been adopted.

Volunteer Shifts & Time Commitment: We need volunteers for 2-4 hours per week from October 27th through December 20th. We also need volunteers from January 11th - January 29th. You are not required to volunteer for the duration of the project but being able to do more than one shift is helpful. 

Volunteer Qualifications include: comfort using computers and simple database and attention to detail.

Location: Santa Cruz Volunteer Center, 1740 17th ave, Santa Cruz, Ca. 95062
This is a great opportunity to connect with your community, gain experience managing a database and support this vital work to help our community. Unfortunately, this project can not be done remotely. We complete health screening for everyone entering the building and have physically distanced work stations.
