We’ve moved our volunteer opportunities online, so you may still #HelpFromHome! If you or your group have questions about any virtual volunteer opportunities listed below, please contact Warren Johnson, Special Events & Volunteer Manager, at email@example.com.
Virtual Volunteer Opportunities
Meals for our Essential Workers
Help to support our efforts in showing much deserved appreciation to our amazing residential teams at the Center by providing meals and snacks for the different shifts.
We have 4 shifts:
- Tuesdays and Saturdays, between 1p and 2p. This would include 50 people
- Tuesdays and Thursdays, for our overnight crew. This would include 14 people
Ways to contribute:
- Donate directly to the Center for staff meals (our team will coordinate to order food for the staff)
- Order a meal directly from a restaurant to be delivered to the Center
- Provide packaged snacks
- Volunteer to make personalized notes for team members (this can be included for all the above options as well😉)
Personal Protection Equipment for Youth and Staff
Help us combat COVID-19 by providing essential personal protective equipment for our nursing and residential staff counselors who have direct contact with our 24/7 care youth living on our main campus. Our services and employees are considered essential by the County of San Diego.
Drop off can be arranged by contacting the Development Department at (858) 596-3935 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Food & Grocery Gift Card Baskets
Many of the children and families we serve are not only dealing with mental health issues that affects their family’s dynamic and individual well-being, but they’re also dealing with the stress of how they’re going to put food on the table due to the severe lack of resources.
By providing a basket (or grocery bag) of nonperishable food items along with a grocery store gift card, you will help alleviate daily stressors for families and create joy for them as they spend time preparing and sharing meals together.
- Multiple baskets are encouraged and appreciated.
