The giving season is here, and we’ve found plenty of opportunities to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of others around Dublin.

The Open Heart Kitchen is known for feeding the hungry of the Tri-Valley. Volunteers at Open Heart Kitchen make a direct impact through preparing, packing and serving meals. Be sure to register to volunteer on their website to help make a difference in the lives of those who may not always know where their next meal is coming from.

Interested in improving the lives of the Dublin’s four-legged residents? Volunteering with East Bay SPCA is the perfect way to enrich the lives of shelter animals – and also your own. So if you’re an animal lover, look no further than this volunteer opportunity. Where your time and effort will go towards making sure shelter animals are fed, socialized, healthy and happy.

Want to learn more about the history of Dublin? Dublin Heritage Park and Museums are always in need of volunteers to help provide tours to the public or working behind the scenes with gardening and historical research. This is a great way to make new friends, help preserve local history and meet visitors from all around the world.


No matter your interest, there are always volunteer opportunities available. So don’t just give thanks this holiday season – give back.
