Napa Valley Unified School District Education Center and Distric 2425 Jefferson St, Napa, CA94558 It's been the headquarters of the Napa Valley Unified School District for generations now, but this Beaux Arts-style…More landmark at the corner of Jefferson Street and Lincoln Avenue was originally built in 1922 as Napa Union High School. Many older Napans remember attending classes there in the half-century before the "new" Napa High went up next door. As the old school aged, it was pronounced unsafe for student use apart from the District Auditorium, which itself was heavily damaged in the 2000 earthquake. For much of the 1990s, the Education Center was painted a startling "Caltrans yellow," until community members and businesses chipped in to restore its historic exterior. Facilities bonds approved by district voters in the 2000s helped modernize the building's interior and restore the District Auditorium to community use. The school board holds its regular public meetings in the south wing of the building.
Although the downtown Napa's Salvation Army thrift store is gone for good, the mission at the corner of Franklin and…More Randolph streets still holds regular worship services, Bible study and specialized classes for women, children and teens.
Currently the Napa Corps operates much-needed programs for community members in need. The Napa Corps’ signature program is a five-day a week free lunch program. Community members in need can go to The Salvation Army in Napa for a free lunch Monday through Friday. This program has seen an increase in attendance due to the current economic climate. On some days, the program feeds more than 70 people a day.
The Salvation Army also runs numerous Youth programs, including summer camping opportunities and musical training. They also operate an Emergency Disaster response canteen, and the Napa team responds to local emergencies when called upon by serving hot meals and cold drinks to first responders and survivors.
