🐾 November 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 925.899.7779
We are here to serve!

Pet Therapy Volunteers at Kindred Hospice
Provide caring visits to patients with their registered therapy dogs. The pet therapy volunteer team must be registered or willing to become registered. Kindred Hospice Foundation’s mission is to support and educate persons and organizations dealing with life-limiting illnesses.
The Urban Farmers Non-Profit
Our goal is to build a community-based, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable model of hunger relief. We harvest excess backyard fruit for donation to the needy. We believe no one should suffer from lack of food. We also believe the poor and the hungry in your community are as important as the ones in our community. We have developed tools, methods, and procedures that are portable.We can help you start a local gleaning chapter quickly and economically.
Results: For 2015, over 1,100 volunteers helped harvest 147,000 pounds of fresh fruit at an operating cost of 12 cents per pound. In other words, instead of a can of unhealthy food that costs $1.50, we deliver 12.5 pounds of fresh fruit.

Discover, Engage & Innovate. Want to learn and share exciting and interactive experiences with future scientists? As a Hall volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help kids and families experience hands-on science, assist our instructors in our classes and workshops and be an ambassador of our mission and programs out in the community or here at the Hall.
