Volunteer Fair

We are thrilled to announce our first ever Volunteer Fair at the Tenderloin Museum. On Wednesday January 13th, we are creating a space where potential volunteers can learn about non-profit service organizations in the community. A 6:30pm reception will be followed by a 7pm presentation from local service organizations.

Come learn about the fantastic work being done by these organizations to help our community, and find out ways you can get involved. Refreshments generously provided by sponsors Zendesk and Zoosk.
