Ways to Volunteer for Earth Day in San Diego

Ways to Volunteer for Earth Day in San Diego from The Wanderer Guides Blog!

Volunteering is such a great thing to do. There’s no better feeling in the world than making a difference. When you volunteer, you help someone or an organization that needs help, learn new skills, meet new people, feel valued and can even get bonus points on your resume or college application. It’s great to give back to the world and make a difference. Earth Day (and Earth Day weekend) is a great chance to volunteer for a wide variety of events and organizations.  Here are some of the ways you can volunteer, or simply do good deeds, this weekend:

  • Volunteer at EarthFair in Balboa Park.
  • Clean out your closet and donate to Goodwill or AmVets.
  • Volunteer at the Humane Society.
  • Plant a tree.
  • Volunteer with your Alumni Group. Call your school to see if they have an Earth Day cleanup event. Even schools like Boston University (the college of one half of The Wanderer Guides!) have an Earth Day event in SD.
  • Spread good cheer at a senior center.
  • Feed the ducks at the Bay or a lake near you.
  • Volunteer with San Diego Coast Keeper. They have events on Saturday like a beach cleanup and a cigarette butt cleanup.
  • Go to a Farmers Market and support local vendors.
  • Read books to kids at the library.
  • Pick up trash in your neighborhood. Better yet, organize your friends and family to do the same.
  • Volunteer with a race. There are a few races going on this weekend.
  • Buy a lunch for a homeless person.
  • Give sincere compliments to strangers.
  • Put more money in the meter than you plan to use.
  • Volunteer at events hosted by UCSD.
  • Offer to help your older neighbor mow their lawn.
  • Recycle.
  • Volunteer with the Red Cross.
  • Park far away and leave the close spot to someone who (probably) needs it more than you.
  • Donate money to causes you care about.
  • Buy the person behind you at Starbucks a drink.
  • Volunteer with the San Diego Food Bank.

Where are you helping this weekend?
