SHAKE N' QUAKE ... Palo Alto will host its annual Quakeville event on Saturday, Sept. 21. The annual neighborhoods drill is designed to help residents and emergency volunteers prepare for the Big One. This year's event will consist of a safety fair at Cubberley Community Center from 1 to 4 p.m. The Red Cross Silicon Valley Chapter will host emergency-shelter workshops, and Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley Disaster Management's Survivable Social Network project will present demonstrations. The Palo Alto police and fire departments, animal services and more will be there. But the annual camp out under the stars has been canceled, organizers said.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
