Community Service Event – Tuesday, August 20

  • Event held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco
  • Volunteer 2:30pm – 4:30pm

Join your fellow conference attendees and NRECA staff as we demonstrate our “Concern for Community” to benefit Family House. The organization serves as a home away from home for families of children pursuing treatment with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses at the University of California San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital. Over the course of a year, Family House provides care, shelter and compassion to over 4,000 families. Volunteers will work together to write notes of encouragement for residents as well as pack food that will stock eight communal pantries benefitting Family House residents.

The volunteering event will be held at the conference hotel after the conference’s closing session. T-shirts and light refreshments will be available for volunteers.
