Volunteer Program ★ 20th Anniversary

Celebrating 20 Years of Volunteerism

Volunteers are vital to San Rafael, supporting the work of our departments, programs, projects, and special events.

Celebrate our volunteer community with us! Check back each week as we spotlight some of the amazing people and programs that have made San Rafael such a great place to live, work, and play.

Projects & Events

 Make a Difference Day was a Sunny Success!

A group of 24 community volunteers sanded and painted park benches, picnic tables and other structures at Albert Park. Plus, they picked up trash from the ball field area. Thank you to Boy Scout Troop 2000, students from TL High School’s Asian and Interact Clubs and other community members.

All the paint dried before the rain started!
