News & Info for July 23rd, 2013


Medical professional volunteers needed to aid Vallejo's homeless

published 2013-07-18 by "Vallejo Times-Herald" []: An effort to bring medical services to a large group of Vallejo homeless people encamped in the city's White Slough area is underway. The project comes as city officials have given the community, dubbed "Dignity Village," direction to disband by August. Before the group disperses, Vallejo Together is calling on medical professionals to donate time to the cause, and asking community members to donate much-needed supplies. "We are looking for doctors, dentists, podiatrists, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, psychiatric technicians and veterinarians," event organizer Justine Manaid said. Manaid added that needed supplies include blood pressure cuffs or machines, stethoscopes, scales, glucose check equipment, alcohol swabs, first aid kids and non-latex gloves. Lunch supplies for volunteers and those seeking medical assistance would also be welcomed, Manaid said. "It is the last time an encampment of this size will be contained so we want to help them before they are abated," Vallejo Together director Maria Guevara said of what she calls an "urgent need" for volunteers and donations. Thus far in the event's organization, Vallejo Together is heavy on volunteers -- especially nurses -- and light on supplies, Manaid said. The event is scheduled to run from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., Aug. 10. For more information, contact Manaid at 315-8252 or visit [].

Studios available for lease
The Coal Shed currently has two studios available for leasing. Both studios are on the loft level (second floor).
The first studio is located above a first-floor work area, with a view of the river and city when the doors are open! It measures approximately 300 sq. ft., and rent is $300.00 ($1.00 per sq. ft.) on a month-to-month basis. The second studio is an enclosed area next to the loft studios, but is enclosed with no windows, but lots of light. It is a studio that has a pass-through to the other studios on the same level. Even though it is the same space as the loft area (it is 300 sq.ft.), the rent is reduced because it does not have windows, and it is a pass through studio. Rent is approximately $200.00 per month.
 If any of you are interested in leasing these studios, please call either Carl Theodorski at: [707] 552-2293 or Sallie Evans at: [707] 567-6726 to let us know as soon as possible.
Please let us know as soon as you receive this notice that you are interested in joining us at the Coal Shed!
