Every year, the Volunteer Center provides online resources that highlight opportunities to volunteer, give gifts, or sponsor a family during the holidays. Links to holiday-related volunteer and giving opportunities are highlighted here during the fall season.
Share the Spirit
The Volunteer Center also co-sponsors the Share the Spirit Fund with the Bay Area News Group – East Bay which includes our long-standing partner the Contra Costa Times, and the Oakland Tribune, Alameda Times Star, The Argus (Fremont) and Daily Review (Hayward). Newspaper readers contribute to the campaign, which benefits nonprofit organizations in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. Proceeds from the fund support children, adults and families in need during the holidays. To donate to Share the Spirit mail check to: Share the Spirit, PO Box 5498, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.
