The Volunteer Fair

Tenderloin Museum, 398 Eddy St, SF
The Volunteer Fair begins with an opening reception at 6:30 pm, followed by short presentations at 7 pm from six local organizations. Participants include Code Tenderloin, St. Anthony Foundation, Project Open Hand, St. James Infirmary, The SMART Program, and Shanti Project.
Come learn about the many ways one can serve those in need and build meaningful community in the heart of San Francisco.
- Project Open Hand: Founded in 1985, Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Our food is like medicine, helping clients recover from illness, get stronger, and lead healthier lives.
- Code Tenderloin works with individuals left out of San Francisco’s economic gains to prepare, stabilize, and teach them job readiness and life skills for entering the workforce giving members of our community radical opportunities. Our goal is to increase employment rates for men and women of color, formerly incarcerated or homeless individuals, and to provide them with support needed to get them employed – and ultimately into a meaningful career.
- The St. Anthony Foundation has been providing essential support to San Franciscans living in poverty since 1950. Every day, St. Anthony’s serves 2400 meals, provides 150 people with fresh, clean clothing, and supports 70 people with addiction recovery services.
- St. James Infirmary is a peer-based occupational health and safety clinic for sex workers of all genders. Their mission is to meet the needs of people engaged in the sex trade through advocacy, direct services, and social justice.
- SMART is a comprehensive eight-year program that provides low-income students in San Francisco access to an exceptional education and the skills needed to thrive in college and in life. Their vision is to end the cycle of poverty in San Francisco by providing students and families academic, social-emotional, and financial support, as well as college preparation and career exploration.
- Shanti exists to enhance the health, quality of life and well-being of people with terminal, life-threatening or disabling illnesses or conditions. Through a continuum of services, including in-home and onsite patient and care navigation, emotional and practical support and preserving the human-animal bond, Shanti strives to achieve the highest medical and quality of life outcomes for San Francisco’s most vulnerable.
