VolunBEERS: A Hoppy Service Project

Mark your calendars for our next VolunBEERS! There will be a service project to benefit other local nonprofits, great beer, and great company. 

VolunBEERS: A Hoppy Service Project
Monday, October 29, 2018

9990 AleSmith Ct.
San Diego, CA 92126

Join HandsOn San Diego at AleSmith Brewing Co. in Miramar on October 29th while giving back to the volunteer community of San Diego! 

Attendees will participate in a 'VolunBEERS Project' which is a simple handmade craft that will benefit another local nonprofit while also supporting HandsOn San Diego in connecting more volunteers with more nonprofits in our area. 

No-sew pillows are back by popular demand! This time, the pillows we make will be donated to veterans seeking permanent housing through Veterans Village of San Diego. We will also be making dog toys for their residents with service dogs. Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD) offers Transitional Housing options to eligible veterans who are homeless, or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, and want to achieve a smooth transition into permanent housing.

We will also be hosting a toiletry and household cleaning supply donation drive for the residents of Operation Homefront's Transitional Housing Village. Service members disabled from injuries return home where they are discharged from service, have to vacate base housing, and have to wait for their VA compensation to begin. Young veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are at risk of becoming homeless if programs are not put into place to help these service members transition back into civilian life while keeping some stability for their families. If you'd like to participate in the donation drive, bring new items such as:

  • Toiletries: full-size shampoo, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.

  • Cleaning supplies: sponges, dish soap, surface cleaning sprays (Windex, Pledge, Lysol), etc. 

We ask for a $5 minimum donation at the door to pay for materials or you can donate $16 for the drink deal that includes 1 glass of select AleSmith beers and an extra opportunity drawing ticket! Use the form at the bottom of this page to donate online before the event to ensure smoother check-in (optional). 

This is open to the public - bring your friends!

About us: HandsOn San Diego is a volunteer-powered nonprofit that strengthens communities through volunteer action and leadership development. We are an online platform that connects volunteers to opportunities around their communities that match both their interests and schedules. We partner with local nonprofits, schools, and parks to identify meaningful group volunteer projects that have easy registration and requires no training!

Check out this video of our VolunBEERS in March 2017 where we made 100 pillows for individuals and families in the Dreams for Change Safe Parking Program.
