Committee Members

HandsOn San Diego is dedicated to volunteer action—so much so that we are a volunteer-powered organization. As such, our committees plan events, connect us with new community partners, and fundraise for our organization. 

VolunBEERS Committee

The VolunBEERS Committee plans, collects donations for, and runs HandsOn San Diego's only fundraiser. VolunBEERS takes place quarterly at a brewery and always involves a hands-on service project for attendees that benefits another local nonprofit. Participation requires monthly 1-2 hour meetings and about 4 hours/month of individual work.
