Event | Oct 26, 11:30am | Volunteering with Boys Hope Girls Hope

When: Sunday, October 26th 11:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.
Where: 4174 24th St. San Francisco 94114 (Noe Valley). The house is located between Castro and Diamond, closer to Diamond.

The Club recently conducted a survey of members to see what type of volunteer activities you might be interested in. Well you spoke and we listened! So please do consider taking a few hours out of your weekend to give back a little and meet some new people and have some fun in the process. A Club member brought us this next activity. We'll be helping Boys Hope Girls Hope, a privately-funded nonprofit, which runs a residential home that is in need of repainting. The home is for academically capable yet at-risk youth and currently houses 10 boys who benefit from the academic focus and environment.

The agency just received a donation of paint and now they just need volunteers (at least 15!). For those of you who have painted before, you'll know that this job also entails some sanding and prep work. If you are free, please join us Sunday, October 26th at 11:30 a.m. to spruce up the house! The more people who help the less time this project will take! Come help out and hang out with your fellow Hoyas!

Street parking is available. Public Transportation: the 24 and the 48 run near the house and the J line at 24th and Church is about five blocks away.

Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value centered, family like homes, opportunities and education through college.
