DONATIONS, CLASSES, TOURS BENEFIT RESIDENTS IN NEED

Baseball great Barry Bonds visited St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin’s Free Dining Room last week to donate $10,000 and to pass out a hot meal to every person waiting in line for lunch. The organization serves Marin’s hungry and homeless seniors, veterans and families. Bonds’ personal touch and expression of care held so much meaning to people who have been suffering through the pandemic, St. Vincent’s leaders said.   -Photos courtesy of St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin

Sonoma State University received a  $4.96 million grant from NASA to design and implement a program that will engage students who are on the autism spectrum in informal STEM learning.  NASA’s Neurodiversity Network strives to broaden participation in NASA programs to include autistic and other learners with neurological differences. Dan Swearingen, co-founder of Autistry studios in San Rafael with his wife Janet Lawson, is among the special consultants for Sonoma State’s new program.  -Photo of Dan Swearingen courtesy of Autistry

Starting this month, Ceres Community Project is offering monthly virtual tours. The organization provides nutritious meals for critically ill clients while empowering teen volunteers. The Zoom tours will feature a teen leader and a staff member who will walk attendees through the history of the organization and provide an overview of meal and youth development programs, food philosophy, ways to get involved and stories from clients and other teen volunteers. The upcoming tours will be held Feb. 9, March 9 and April 13.
