Community based organizations coordination meeting scheduled

Last fall several community based organizations met to discuss how to reduce duplication of efforts regarding donations to children/families.

They have scheduled a follow-up meeting to prepare a community map that will address the following:

1. Establish a communication between entities that would identify projects that they are engaged in that shares information as to where their efforts are focused (geographic information), when they are looking to provide support (months), any specific populations being focused on (i.e.: grade levels, etc.), what is being provided (i.e.: backpacks, clothes, food, school supplies, etc.).

2. Coordinate efforts to ensure that we are not duplicating efforts and that we are maximizing resources.

3. Discuss the distribution means to see if we can ensure that the neediest students are served and that we do not have significant overlap of efforts with the same students benefiting from two or more efforts.

The follow-up meeting has been scheduled for March 29, 2:30 to 4 p.m. at the El Dorado County Office of Education, 6767 Green Valley Road, Placerville, conference room B2. If you work for a community based organization and would like to join this meeting RSVP to Jackie Mintz at [email protected], or (530) 295-2337, by March 26.
