Coastside Hope relies on volunteers to help with our safety net programs. Volunteers are vital to running our food programs. Our pantry is re-stocked every day by a volunteer. At our bi-weekly Senior Brown Bag and monthly Family Harvest off-site food distributions, our employees function primarily as supervisors, with the bulk of the work being done by volunteers. Our Christmas Adopt-A-Family and free tax preparation programs are both entirely run by volunteers. Our volunteers mean the world to us!

If you have any questions please contact or 650-523-3519.  Volunteer service with Coastside Hope fulfills school community service requirements.
