🐝 August Edition: Let's ❤️ Our Community Back
Within our team at GoodAgent.org we strongly believe that the more we give, the happier we feel. When we are doing good for others and the community, we get the gift 🎁 of a natural sense of accomplishment and higher levels of self-confidence. Our role as a volunteer can not only enhance our sense of pride and identity but also reduce stress, help us find friends, increase our reach to the community, help us learn new skills, and so much more.
So we volunteer a lot, and now as part of our Vision for 2018, we want you to Volunteer with us, and this is why we will be publishing a monthly guide to Volunteering in the San Francisco East Bay Area.
If you have more questions, want us to add your cause on our list, have more recommendations, or would like to be featured with an interview by our Team, shoot us an email at [email protected] or call us directly at 925.280.8574.
We are here to serve!
Featured Organizations for the Month of August:
It will take some time to identify specific needs, but financial donations to grant-making organizations and nonprofit disaster response organizations are the best way to help individuals and families affected by disasters. As needs are identified, this information will be posted on this website.
California Volunteers strongly encourages donors to carefully research charitable organizations prior to donating to ensure that their donated funds will have the desired result. For additional information and easy-to-use tips on avoiding charity scams following a disaster, please visit the California Office of the Attorney General’s Charities website.
