TLM's 4th Annual Volunteer Fair

The Tenderloin Museum is pleased to announce its 4th annual Volunteer Fair, which will take place on Tuesday, January 29.

This gathering is intended for first time volunteers and seasoned civil servants to meet and connect with representatives from several of the Tenderloin’s vital service nonprofits. Come learn about the many ways one can serve those in need and build meaningful community in the heart of San Francisco.

The Volunteer Fair begins with an opening reception at 6:30 pm, followed by short presentations at 7 pm from over a half dozen local organizations.
