Caro-Nut Company Inc. in Fresno heard on the news last week there were communities in San Joaquin Valley that were feeling the extremes of the drought and the summer heat. Caro-Nut Co. wanted to do something to help and challenged their employees to donate bottled water for a community and the company would match their amounts.
Through the connections of Self-Help Enterprises, Fairmead Community & Friends picked up over 60 cases of bottled water and will distribute to community residents who are in need due to their dry domestic wells.
April 2, 2016 Fairmead Community & Friends attended a workshop in the community of Calwa in Fresno on “How a bill is introduced into Law”, sponsored by Leadership Counsel and Justice Accountability. The information was easy to understand by the way it was presented and it was also inspiring to listen and talk to other San Joaquin volunteer community leaders that advocate for their disadvantaged communities just as we do.
Thank you to our friends, directors Phoebe Seaton and Veronica Garibay of Leadership Counsel and Justice Accountability for helping us make a difference in our communities.

We need more exposure like this excellent article on the true facts of unincorporated communities in San Joaquin Valley.
Our communities need extended support from our local governments just as we pay taxes in these counties. “The times they are a changin” but some of the unincorporated communities have not and they won’t if we don’t continue to be heard.
