    Amateur Radio Operators Needed

    If you are an amateur radio operator and looking for something different to do during shelter operations we can help.

    What will you need? You need a valid amateur radio license and a willingness to help others following the guidelines established by the American Red Cross


    What will you be doing? You will be providing the shelter manager, or designee, a communication link to the Operations Center or other services if phones are not available while the shelters are open. You may do other duties if you want as long as you can do this primary duty when required. Other duties are not required!


    What will I need? You will need to have a radio(s) and power supplies to function for a minimum of 16 hours (you hopefully would not work that long). You should have digital communications capability such as a computer with “Winlink” installed but that is a recommendation, not a requirement.


    Who do I answer to? On location, you answer to the shelter manager for the shift. Your Net Control Operator will be at the Operation Center or could be working from another location depending on the situation. Because of the nature of your job, there will always be someone at the other end of your radio.


    We’d love to hear from you! Please send correspondence to:

    Food Banks

    San Andreas
    The Resource Connection’s mission is to engage families, empower communities, and enrich the lives of the residents of Amador and Calaveras counties.

    In 1977, a group of county employees from Calaveras and Amador began meeting with the Mountain Sisters Collective. Both groups were concerned about issues facing the community — notably the lack of adequate child care and the increase in the rates of domestic violence. They worried that local families needed additional services beyond those provided by county agencies, and that rural areas were increasingly challenged to meet the needs of dispersed populations. In 1980, a nonprofit organization was formed: Human Resources Council (HRC), which opened its doors with a staff of four Over the next two decades, HRC grew to include numerous services and programs needed by the residents of the two counties.

    In March 2009, HRC changed its name to "The Resource Connection" and re-committed itself to engaging families, empowering communities, and enriching the lives of the residents of Amador and Calaveras counties.

    The Resource Connection's 130 employees play an important and ever-expanding role in the region — offering an array of child and family, nutrition, and prevention and intervention programs and services.

    The Resource Connection is looking for volunteers to work in the Food Bank distributing food to clients at the San Andreas location. Responsibilities include the following:

    • Bagging food
    • Labeling food
    • Helping clients to their car with food.
