Hi Fellow CAYP Members,
Please see below about information on volunteering to help families affected by the fires in San Diego . The email specifically addresses the need for bilingual volunteers but people interested in volunteering in general can contact Denise Garcia at denised1224@... for more information.

Bilingual volunteers are needed to inform immigrant evacuees of their rights and aid them accessing emergency relief services. The purpose of this effort is to ensure the immigrant community of San Diego are able to safely access social services without fear. Duties may include communicating with other relief personnel (FEMA, Volunteer Coordinator, Medical Services) to ensure non-english speaking evacauees who need translation can come to us for help. Also, flyers about what one's rights are when confronted by the police or immigration authorities in one's home, workplace or on the street will be passed out. Please sign up for a four hour shift (at least 3 volunteers per shift). Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Arabic, Somali, Chaldean and other languages are needed.
Scheduling: We would prefer that you commit to at least 4 volunteer hours. However if you are unable…we will take whatever time you have to give. Please specify what shift you are making a commitment for. Please include a cell phone number as a contact .
For any questions please contact Denise Garcia at denised1224@...
