East Bay Family Volunteer Day 2020!


On November 21, 2020, we will mark the 30th anniversary of Family Volunteer Day. Family Volunteer Day is a global day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods.  

This year, the needs are greater than ever before. And though volunteering may look different, there are still so many ways to give back. Take time out with your family this season to help others and make a positive mark on the world.  

East Bay activities will benefit Downtown Streets Team East Bay, Catholic Charities East Bay and first and second responders. There are a variety of virtual volunteer opportunities you can choose from. Choose just one or multiple activities all contributions are greatly appreciated.  

Remember videos/patterns are only suggestions, we want you to be creative and use the best techniques that suits your time and talent.  

Downtown Streets Team East Bay

T-shirt bags - Have an old t-shirt you were going to throw away? DST are asking for t-shirt bags to put hygiene kits in for distribution. Click here for an easy video tutorial.

Catholic Charities East Bay

Joybells Toy Drive - They are asking for packaged/new toys either wrapped with a note of what is inside or in a gift bag. These will be donated during their annual Project Joybells Toy Drive to kids in our community who otherwise wouldn't recieve any gifts come the holidays.

First and Second Responders

Thank you letters – This is a great way to get your kids volunteering. Help us thank all those who helped during and after the many Bay Area fires this past year by writing thank you letters. Letters will be sent to 911 ambulance providers, evacuated animal caretakers, shelter operators, and more! So, make sure your cards have a general message to all responders.
