TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR VOLUNTEERS
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!

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.
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.
