Donate your time to make a difference in your neighborhood

This group of volunteers donated time and worked on the community garden at Doria in Irvine.

Volunteering is a great way to help Jamboree help others. Time donated by Jamboree volunteers furthers our mission to strengthen communities, transform lives, and end homelessness. We offer a number of ways for individuals and groups, like the Corona del Mar High School football team members (pictured above), to engage with many of our 90+ neighborhoods serving 18,800+ residents – from Sacramento to L.A., Orange County to San Diego.

It's easy to give back

Whether you’re a student, retiree, or business professional, you can get involved in our service programs and make a tangible difference in the lives of kids, families, seniors, and veterans.

  • Current students: Earn community service hours when you volunteer with us during the summer or whenever you’re home on a break. Or, find a Jamboree property near your school where you can help us create healthy communities.
  • High schools, colleges, universities: Our growing network – including community colleges, UC, and Cal State schools statewide to campuses on the east coast – provides students with hands-on ways to make local communities a better place to live. Academic internship opportunities are available in our onsite after-school programs, as well as at our corporate offices in Business Development, Project and Asset Management, Marketing Communications, and much more.
  • Professionals: Share your time and talents on a regular basis with a deserving and motivated audience. If you have limited availability, join us by serving at one of our one-day events.
  • Companies: Serve together with other staff or a team of your colleagues. Find out how you can partner with us to make a difference in your local neighborhood. It’s a great way to get your company name in front of the community.

Provide hope throughout the year

For Jamboree residents – who include formerly homeless and seniors on a fixed income – donations can help budgets stretch further. Individuals and companies can make financial donations towards the purchase of such things as household cleaning supplies for families, personal hygiene kits for formerly homeless residents, back-to-school backpacks and supplies for students, gift bags for veterans, holiday poinsettias for seniors, and more. Donations can be made on the Jamboree Give Center.

Other in-kind donations include art supplies, books and toys, sporting equipment, technology, and even products and services like oral hygiene products and health clinics at Jamboree properties from companies like Kaiser Permanente.

To make arrangements, contact Marcy Finamore. For donations with a value over $5,000, please contact Marcy Finamore at 949-263-8676.
