Sacred Heart Community Service ( is an organization dedicated to bringing our community together to address poverty in Silicon Valley. Join 100 volunteers at their San Jose facility to get the agency ready to serve customers the following week. Saturday volunteers work either in the pantry bagging non-perishables, outside bagging produce, in the clothes closet sorting and hanging clothes or outside receiving donations. Please come with an open mind ready to help out in a variety of ways.

Here are some important information for all volunteers.

1. Every (FIRST-TIME) volunteer should fill out their online volunteer agreement before the shift.


2. Punctuality and parking are important. Allow extra time for parking. You MAY have to find street parking. PLEASE DO NOT PARK AT DENNY'S OR WENDY'S ACROSS THE STREET.

Here's a map <>  to help plan.


3. Please ask to be directed to the volunteer office when you come in, which is close to the first street entrance.


4. Please wear comfortable clothing and you must have covered toes.


5. Volunteers will sort and bag food, or sort and hang clothes, or accept donation.


Feel free to contact me for any questions.

    We have an obligation by volunteering to show up or the community we serve gets short changed. Especially so for the waiting list who were ready and willing to help. Next time honor the reservation to show up or don't reserve.

    HELLO ALL - looks like i got moved to "attending early this morning - was on the waiting list for several weeks. Appreciate that Aravind sent out an email asking folks to update their RSVP. Would have been great if people could check their calendars and update RSVPs at least 72 hours before event. This would allow those of us on waiting list to see if we could still attend and also change our RSVP accordingly.

    OOP's - Didn't make the "IN GROUP" - - probably will change RSVP
    before the event - - AND - - go do something with another group that needs me - I generally have a pretty full calendar - - and - "hanging loose" waiting to do something when others need you is just not very practical - - so not easy to see the future -
