Volunteer Hotlist San Francisco
- BAY AREA VOLUNTEER INFORMATION CENTER
The purpose of this Web publication is to provide information about volunteer opportunities in the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. Hopefully, volunteerism will be stimulated and facilitated by letting potential volunteers know about the wide range of opportunities open to them and by giving Bay Area non-profit organizations a means of publishing their goals and needs.
If you are considering volunteering we hope the following information helps you find the opportunity you are looking for. Volunteers are needed to do just about anything from repairing computers to picking fruit to making sandwiches. Time commitments can range from a few hours for a single project to as much time as you have available. Try something new. Learn new skills and meet new people.

About Glide Memorial’s Free Meals Program
Glide’s Free Meals Program is the only program in San Francisco that serves three nutritious meals every day to the poor, homeless and hungry. Begun in 1969 Glide’s Food and Meals Program today serves as many as 3,500 meals a day and averages more than one million meals every year. Operating with a paid staff of only 16, the program could not survive without the energy and commitment of thousands of volunteers, and the stream of food and supplies donated by corporations, restaurants, hotels, individuals and foodservice suppliers.

- The Alemeda County Community Food Bank
Hunger: A choice no one should have to make.
Each month, tens of thousands of low-income Alameda County residents cannot afford well-balanced meals for themselves and their families. Many never imagined they would need to request food assistance, but barren cupboards and empty pockets have led them to local soup kitchens and food pantries.
- Project Open Hand
In 1985 in San Francisco, Ruth Brinker, a retired grandmother, watched a dear friend die of AIDS. She realized that for many people with HIV/AIDS, malnutrition was causing death as much as the illness itself. At that time, no social service agency was providing meals to those too weak from AIDS or too impoverished to feed themselves. Using her experience as a manager with another food program, Ruth enlisted the help of her friends, secured a basement kitchen at a local church and began to serve meals to seven clients, Project Open Hand was born.

Volunteer California Coastal Commission
- The 21st Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day will be
Saturday, September 17, 2005
California Coastal Cleanup Day is the premier
volunteer event focused on the marine environment in the country. On this day,
50,000 volunteers turn out to over 700 cleanup sites statewide to conduct what has been hailed by the
Guinness Book of World Records as "the largest garbage collection" (1993). Since the program started in
1985, over 650,000 Californians have removed more than 10 million pounds of debris from our state's shorelines and
coast. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by The Ocean Conservancy and taking place
on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events of the year.

CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME -- "One's own family (or country, etc.) comes before any other responsibilities. The idea of the proverb can be found in the Bible. The proverb dates back to the time of the Roman comic playwright Terence (about 190-159 BC). In 1383, John Wycliffe wrote: 'Charity should begin at himself.' Five hundred years later Dickens said that 'Charity begins at home, and justice begins next door.' First attested in the United States in the 'Winthrop Papers' (1628).'." From "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" (1996) by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996).
"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own."
"Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You" speech
