Beat the Heat with Summer
 Safety in June
Summer is a great time to get outside and get active! Remember these safety tips to help you get the most out of your summer:
  • Apply sunscreen to exposed areas at least 30 minutes before going outside
  • Keep babies under six months out of direct sunlight and covered with lightweight clothing
  • Never leave children alone near water
  • Have your child wear a life jacket in boats or when near bodies of water
  • Make sure playground equipment is cool before children begin to play

Foundation Study Report Released
As reported in a recent KQED news article, a report by Applied Survey Research, “Foundation Giving in the Bay Area: Who Wins and Who’s Left Behind,” Solano County has the highest rate of families in poverty and the lowest rate of foundation giving among the nine Bay Area Counties.

The study found that when compared to a similar study conducted a decade ago by the James Irvine Foundation entitled “Giving in California,” nothing has changed in the past ten years....Solano County ranked last then too. Continued research to examine causes related to this issue will be conducted and included in a follow-up report at a later time
