We are grateful for their contributions, and are fully committed to providing our volunteers with a rewarding experience. 

The Benefits of Volunteering

As a volunteer, you will not only become part of the Hearts for San Diego team, but have opportunities to directly contribute to our mission, as well as our culture and core values. We offer volunteer experiences that promote social enrichment and personal growth through different platforms and levels of involvement. You will have the opportunity to get to know and build relationships with the San Diego community, local charities and businesses, and our amazing team of volunteers.

 

Volunteer opportunities are always available. Based on your interests, availability, special skills and experience, we'll work with you to find the best fit:

I have worked with Hearts 4 San Diego on many of their events and projects over the past few years, both as a graphic designer and as a volunteer. Karen Moy and her team of dedicated true professionals and super heroes do an amazing and thorough job of organizing, planning and throwing spectacular events which benefit a number of local non-profits. I highly recommend H4SD and look forward to a future of FUN and philanthropy!!

I have had the honor of volunteering with Hearts for San Diego since its inception. I love their mission to fulfill other smaller local charities missions. What a great concept to fulfill many needs. I love the variety of charities served, from veterans to pets to cancer. I also love that the events are affordable and encourage the younger generations to get involved.

I am so happy I found Hearts for San Diego! I began volunteering for them just about a year ago. They are 100% volunteer based and have events to help raise awareness and money for other non-profits. I have also had the privilege of being a vendor at a recent dog adoption event where I was representing my dog walking business! This is a group of friendly, caring individuals who give so much of their time and energy to really help the community and other local charities.

Volunteering for Hearts for San Diego has been one of the best things to happen to me in my young adult life.  Not only do I get the satisfaction of contributing to an amazing mission that caters to many different causes, but I also get to have a blast with newfound friends at events that have become cherished memories for me.  Not only am I able to give my heart to San Diego by volunteering, but I am also able to see how diverse, passionate, and inspiring the hearts in San Diego are.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this wonderful experience.  I look forward to all the events to come!

This is such a wonderful organization. I have done 2 events so far and am working on the 3rd. The directors of Hearts4SD are some of the kindest, most giving people I have ever met. Each event is different which I love, and they always have use for new volunteers. I wanted to get involved in something that I could really dive into and become of a part of and Hearts4SD is exactly that! I am excited to keep working with this nonprofit and give back to local charities and the community!

I signed up to be a Shoe Ambassador and was immediately impressed by the mission, vision and core values of Hearts for San Diego.  How exciting to be part of an organization that believes in connecting and inspiring communities to support local causes AND helps those local charities complete THEIR mission. 

 

I volunteered at the Community Shoe Drive Kick Off Party in early September at Wang’s North Park.  The room was electric!  We collected over 700 pairs of shoes that night and I could feel the call to service swelling in my heart.

 

Being on Karen’s team has also allowed me to meet new businesses and awesome San Diego people.  I am so proud to know Karen and be part of her organization.  I KNOW that we are going to do great things AND will continue to have FUNdraising events for charities that are making a difference in OUR community.
