Holiday Volunteer Opportunities






Hello STEP Community,

Thank you to all of our volunteers that have come out to volunteer over the last month. You have made a huge impact at STEP and in our military community. We could not do what we do without YOU! This update includes our holiday volunteer opportunities, can you believe it is that time of year already? We are so excited about all the exciting events coming up and we hope you will join us!

Below you will find opportunities through the end of the year, we may add additional events and will send out updates as needed. If you would like to volunteer for an event, please respond to this email so we can add you to the list. All volunteers are required to sign up for events so we can maintain the number of people in the building and maintain social distancing. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be available for you. Please note:  All events are held at our office located at 9915 Businesspark Ave., Suite A, San Diego 92131 unless otherwise noted.
