We need volunteers in every Samaritan House department, including our medical and dental clinics, administration, data management, food services, client service administration, marketing, and financial empowerment.
Social responsibility is not only inspiring, it’s good for your business. Corporate opportunities include one-day service, custom team building activities, and donation drives. We welcome your interest.
Children, Youth & Families
Teach your kids the value of giving back. We welcome parents with children or teens volunteering with us to do things like deliver mobile meals, pack pantry bags, and run “sponsor me” events to raise money.
Faith & Community Groups
Building an enduring community is at the heart of everything we do. We work with faith and community groups in many ways, including food preparation, packing and distributing groceries, and sorting and stocking our free children’s clothing store.
Schools & School Groups
Volunteering is a great way to build awareness and empathy, and teach students how to join the fight against poverty and homelessness. We strive to involve schools and students in our community service.
Samaritan House is the only organization that delivers the full breadth of essential services to the working poor in San Mateo County—and we rely on donations to serve thousands of individuals and families. Find out how easy it is to run a drive.
