Share your volunteer stories, meet friends, & learn about Bay Area volunteering
Thirty nine volunteers hit the road to gulf on Saturday morning. The volunteers, who were either University of Phoenix affiliates or members of the local HandsOn Bay Area community, transformed Burton High School and El Dorado Elementary School in San Francisco by painting a hallway, collecting trash, building a set for the school's theater department, and mulching a hillside that is the final key to connecting a park and greenway in Vistacion Valley. Volunteers also assembled ecology teaching aids that will go to benefit schools in the Gulf Coast as part of HandsOn Network's Road to the Gulf program.
The accompanying service leader training taught leaders how to develop sustainable, repeatable projects to meet community-specific needs. Participants walked away with instructions for service projects that they could begin implementing immediately in their own neighborhoods.
