Our Annual Report is Online

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Each year Peninsula Volunteers has an independent audit performed on our accounts and business practices. We combine these results (always positive!) with our list of the fiscal year’s donors (that’s July 1 through June 30, not the calendar year), and some highlights of our goings on. These become our Annual Report to our community.

We always post these online, both the financial audits for public disclosure, and the Annual Report.

You can find them on this page: http://www.penvol.org/about/reports.cfm

We hope this gets you as excited as we are about all the great work we are able to do so cost-effectively for seniors throughout the mid-Peninsula.

And if you are so moved, you can join us as a volunteer or as a donor!

Thank you for your interest in helping seniors and for your support of Peninsula Volunteers.

Thank you.

Your Year End Giving

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

This is about you. You care about people. You know that we at Peninsula Volunteers do too!

In fact, everything we do is about caring FOR people. Folks like yourself or your parents and your neighbors.

This is the “season of giving”. You’ll see messages everywhere to give to your favorite local charities. You’ll see stories that will make you weep and tug at your heartstrings. You’ll get requests from friends and colleagues and organizations to GIVE!

We’re a bit quieter about all that at Peninsula Volunteers. Yet our need for your help to help seniors in our communities is every bit as important and as heartwarming in results as any story you’ll hear this month! If you haven’t yet made your gift, please do!

Here’s the simplest way – donate directly to us online. DonateNow

I promise you that we’ll be just as ready to accept your gift by phone or mail, so you don’t need to be high tech to do this. Just big hearted!

Call Cathy at: (650) 326-0665, ext. 238. Or pop it in the US Mail to: 800 Middle Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025.

You will be in good company! Here’s what one of our Meals on Wheels recipients says:

Thank you for your donation to keep Peninsula Volunteers’ many vital programs going and growing to meet the needs of seniors right here you your backyard.

National Corvette Restorers Support Meals on Wheels

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Northern California Chapter National Corvette Restorers Society Home PageIt seems quite fitting that an organization built on a love of wheels (classic Corvettes specifically) decided to lend their financial support to Peninsula Volunteers Meals on Wheels program.

Yesterday,  the Northern California Chapter of the National Corvette Restorers Society drove in a contribution of $200 to help us deliver meals to hungry, home-bound seniors.

The NCC/NCRS is a group gathered for the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of vintage Corvettes (’53-’96 at the present) but mostly for fun!

We’re looking forward to seeing the ‘Vettes parked out in front of Little House someday. How about Meals on Wheels delivered by Corvette directly to your door. Wouldn’t that be a kick?

Thanks to all our friends at the Northern California Chapter of NCRS.

Bar Mitzvah Donation to Rosener House

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

As one of his first actions as an adult member of the community, Sam Perry donated his Bar Mitzvah money to Rosener House. 

In the Jewish religion, boys at the age of 13 participate in this traditional rite of passage, in which they become full-fledged members of the Jewish community with the associated responsibilities.  Sam’s donation to Rosener House is an act of generosity that exemplifies his responsibility to the community.   We are grateful for his kindness.

In the photo, Sam presents Rosener House Director Barbara Kalt with a check.  Also present are Sam’s grandfather, who is a Rosener House participant, and Sam’s mother, Karen.

Thank you, Sam. You’re a real “Mensch!” (“Mensch” is Yiddish for a stalwart individual of character.)
