CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING

There’s no easier or more effective way for your business to make a difference in the lives of San Franciscans in need than by helping at St. Anthony’s.

From the City’s largest companies, to recent startups, we build strong relationships with our partners whose donations and volunteering help us provide services with respect and dignity 365 days a year.

St. Anthony’s provides an opportunity for your employees to get involved and connect with their community.

We can accommodate groups large and small. Each benefits from a brief orientation & training session before being set to work. These can be tailored to the specific needs of your business and can include remarks by speakers from your organization.

Our corporate group volunteer coordinator will schedule your group in our Free Clothing Program, Dining Room or Farmers Market.

For more information or to schedule your group, please contact our corporate volunteer coordinator Erika Hapa at 415-592-2728 or groupvolunteer@stanthonysf.org.
