Help SVdP Receive $1,000 - Volunteer @ Oakland's First Fridays!
We're seeking 15 to 20 energetic and outgoing volunteers to assist at the entrance gates for the June 5th & July 3rd Oakland First Fridays events in downtown Oakland. This is a really fun outdoor street fair that incorporates art, food, music and community and it takes place just a few blocks from the SVdP dining room.
Volunteers will be greeting attendees and collecting donations at the entrance gates and shifts will be from 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm. There will be secure parking at SVdP's campus, and we'll walk over to the event as a group. You can also take Bart and exit at the 19th Street Station and walk down to Telegraph and West Grand Ave. Volunteers need to be 18 and up for this event.
SVdP will receive a $500 donation for each event but we will need the assistance of 15 - 20 awesome volunteers!

Altered Painting 3 on Exhibit 4/10 - 6/7
Altered Paintings 3 is a group exhibition of altered works created by the community. Participating artists were able to choose a piece of mass-produced art from St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County’s thrift store donation stream and alter it to create something new. See more here.
