WHAT IS LOVE STANISLAUS COUNTY?
Love Stanislaus County is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2014. Love Stanislaus County oversees city-wide volunteer days (Love Modesto, Love Waterford, Love Oakdale, etc.) in Stanislaus County with the goal of bringing communities together through volunteering. In addition to our city-wide volunteer days, Love Stanislaus County has four programs.
Our Kids Program focuses on helping foster youth and foster youth families with securing household items needed (beds, couches, lamps, etc). Additionally, the Kids Program creates comfort kits. A comfort kit is a backpack with a blanket, hyenine products and a stuffed animal. Comfort kits are given to foster youth who are moved or removed from their home.
Our Neighbors Program focuses on bringing communities together. This work includes helping volunteers connect to volunteer opportunities, hosting or co-hosting events and activities in neighborhoods that bring people together and connects them to resources.
Our Schools Program focuses on creating villages to help schools. A village is when the program connects local businesses and churches to a school that is located in the same neighborhood as the church or business to help where help is needed. Examples of village activities include backpack drives; student activates and special events. Additionally, the Schools Program works to connect schools to volunteer opportunities for their staff and students.
Our Seniors Program focuses on assisting older adults and persons with disabilities in our community by connecting them with resources and volunteers who are willing to help. The Seniors Program receives referrals from Stanislaus County Adult Protective Agency (APS) and In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) for seniors who may need items fixed in their home or perhaps furniture or other household items.
