Ways to Help


There is nothing more powerful than the power of community. And, we have an amazing community here in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. If you are looking for ways to help during these difficult and constantly changing times, we have a few ways to help.

Meal Volunteers Needed

WCCUSD is distributing student meals for children ages 18 and under, regardless of Free and Reduce Lunch status, at 17 different locations. In order to continue food distribution during the duration of the closure, the District is seeking volunteers to help assemble and distribute meals to children in the community. While volunteering, social distancing guidelines will be in effect. To volunteer, please sign up for one of the following locations: 

De Anza High School
