Check Online Calendar for Volunteer Opportunities

Good afternoon –

Just one more late item today – if your summer is not completely full, or maybe if  you’re just looking for a way to give back to the community, I want to encourage you to take a look at all the great volunteer opportunities that are listed on Redwood City’s website calendar. Some of them are one-time, date-specific opportunities, others are more general requests for volunteers where you can choose your own days and times. We make it very easy and convenient to fit some volunteer time into your busy schedule!

Go to and take a look – all the volunteer opportunities are shown in purple colored text.  You can set the filter to view only the volunteer items: on the upper left side you’ll see a pull-down menu that says, “Show: All Categories” – click on the arrow, and then select “Show: Volunteering” and you’ll view only the volunteer opportunities.

Here are some of the kinds of volunteer activities you can choose from:

• Construction Volunteers for Rebuilding Together Peninsula
• Help in ESL/Citizenship Preparation Classes
• Be a Project READ literacy tutor
• Do a Park Cleanup Project
• Be an After School Sports Coach
• Join in Parks/Community Services Activities
• Share Nature at Edgewood Park
• Help Friends of the Library
• Coach Basketball or Volleyball at the Boys & Girls Club
• Volunteer for Library Cleanup Days
• Read to Kids with Traveling Storytime
• Help With Library Services
• Become a Mentor with Friends for Youth
• Join Teen Volunteer Opportunities at the Library
• Assist with Activities at Fair Oaks Community Center
• Bring the Family to Spring and Fall Cleanup Days

And don’t forget, if your organization has a need for volunteers for specific events, please be sure to post them on this calendar – contact me if you’d like a longer-term general request for volunteers to be posted.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
