Sharing the Holiday Spirit

During the holidays the public truly embraces service and generosity. This is perhaps one of the best parts of the holiday season for me. The spirit of giving reaches beyond family and friends and the impact of this season benefits many well into the new year. Volunteer San Diego is once again your headquarters for tapping into truly meaningful volunteer projects and opportunities to give. Check out Volunteer San Diego's Holiday Volunteer Guide for 54 projects with a Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's or general winter holiday focus.

Extend the holiday spirit even further with a bit of creativity. Perhaps you can forgo fancy holiday parties and spend time with friends at a volunteer project instead. Make donations or purchase gifts for someone in need in honor of your loved ones. You can very easily share the VSD Holiday Volunteer Guide with your colleagues, friends and family, and give them the chance to fill their hearts with the holiday spirit, too.

Follow the Holiday Volunteer Guide links above to browse our online list of holiday volunteer projects and wish lists, or download the PDF version.
