Help Preserve Our History

Please note:
At present, while the Concord Museum and Event Center is being completed,
the Resource Center is unavailable. When it reopens there will be a great need for volunteers
in roles identical or similar to those described below. If you would like to help when the time
arrives, give Resource Center Director Lind Higgins a call at: (925) 827-3380.

If you wish to offer assistance as a docent at the Galindo Home, contact Volunteer Coordinator
Jo Anne Fryer at (925) 726-8520.

If you would like to learn more about the history of our area and get involved in preserving it, CHS could use your help caring for the many artifacts and reference materials donated to the Society’s Resource Center.

In addition to helping those who visit the Resource Center during the open hours, answering the phone, and following up on the questions that callers ask, volunteers have an opportunity and responsibility for logging in new donations, and preparing materials for use or storage.  This, of course, involves a lot of detail work, and includes lots of filing, copying, typing, and data entry — all necessary for keeping track of our growing collection.

If you have a few hours to spare and are willing to help with the “office work”, please contact our our Volunteers Coordinator Jo Anne Fryer at 925-726-8520 or visit our Resource Center on Tuesdays between 1-4.  Training for new volunteers is Tuesdays 1:00 to 4:00.  Once trained, volunteers may schedule other days and times to assist at the Center.
