Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk Silva

Returning to her roots to educate.

From hosting Teleconference Town Halls and blood drives to dropping off food and thanking first responders, Assemblymember Sharon Quirk Silva demonstrates her “pitch in where you’re needed” approach to lifting up her communities. And she offers a very special skill!

She draws on her 30 years of teaching to share lessons and read stories for families who need assistance in home learning. Whether the topic is gardening, manners or the capitol, Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva provides parents and children with a small break from COVID-19 and a reminder that learning enriches.

“There are plenty of Californians who are facing very serious health situations due to the pandemic. By volunteering and providing our time, talents, and compassion we are truly providing a meaningful difference for those struggling with health concerns, educational barriers, homelessness, and a number of significant matters. I am proud of those who volunteered their time and helped those who have been affected by COVID-19, as kindness has no borders or timelines."
