The following organizations are in need of volunteers ... perhaps you or a small group of friends would like to help:
Habitat for Humanity - Support our mission in the ReStore! Habitat operates a retail store here in Escondido. They accept donations of building materials and home goods and the sale of these items help to fund their mission of building/renovating homes for low income families. With volunteer hours available between 9am and 4pm, they are able to schedule opportunities that fit your needs. Whether you want to spend a couple hours or all day, the ReStore is a great opportunity where volunteers will help to get donations ready for the sales floor, organize the floor, and assist customers. If interested register at sandiegohabitat.org.
Habitat for Humanity is also seeking volunteers to cut playhouse templates for groups interested in building playhouses for military families, Headstart programs, and other non-profit groups. Templates are cut and at the warehouse in Kearny Mesa. If interested please contact Linnea Lagerstrom@sandiegohabitat.org
Salvation Army in Escondido is in need of people to help move appliances as they prepare their kitchen for new flooring. Also, if a small group would like to adopt one of their garden areas to refurbish by preparing the soil, planting succulents, and lava rock it would be greatly appreciated. Contact Lt. Mark Litreal at email@example.com
4 Community Care is in need of drivers to join a team picking up produce, bread, meats, and dairy items from local grocery stores and deliver items to low income housing complexes within the Poway Unified School District boundaries. This could be once a week or once a month whatever fits your schedule. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are looking for ways to be involved in our community please consider volunteering with one of these organizations. Thank You!
