Pro Bono Perspectives S3E8: Dave Smith, Californians for All

How California Rallied Volunteers during the Pandemic

SOURCE: Common Impact


In celebration of National Volunteer Week, host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly interviews Californians for All Director Dave Smith about the founding of this California Volunteers initiative and how it achieved over one million volunteer hours and 600,000 meals served in its first year.

At the beginning of the pandemic, food banks and pantries faced an operations crisis when demand skyrocketed and volunteerism dropped off, sometimes up to 75%. Californians for All was launched to mobilize lower-risk individuals as volunteers and direct them toward overburdened organizations addressing food insecurity as well as other core needs like education, mental health, blood donations, and more.
