All You Need Is Love Volunteer Day

Making someone else feel special is what Valentine’s Day is all about! Whether you’re happily single, just dumped, dating around, or already in a relationship, it’s easy to make a big hearted difference when you join our “All You Need Is Love Volunteer Day” event. This event is a mixture of an interactive project, where we’ll be building 2,000 valentine gifts for distribution to our low-income and homeless neighbors of the Tenderloin, as well as a social meet up—with complimentary champagne/beer mimosas and small bites. Come out and join us—we guarantee you’ll end the day happier than if you stayed at home! #AllYouNeedIsLove...
