HandsOnline - Connection is essential

HandsOn Bay Area is excited to offer HandsOnline, our Virtual Volunteering program. This program is our volunteer driven response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. While we may need to be physically apart right now, we can still engage in meaningful virtual engagements that support our community. These shared experiences bring volunteers out of their isolation and mobilize them to a greater good.
