Join us for the 10th anniversary of Compassion Week (October 15 – 23). Compassion Week encourages individuals, groups and families to engage in acts of volunteer service to build a strong, compassionate, and empathetic community.
“Bringing people together for 10 years in a row is no small thing," said County Supervisor Joe Simitian. "I congratulate the Compassion Week team for their vision and dedication. And I’m delighted our County can add its support to the effort. I’m particularly pleased that my office and I can roll up our sleeves and help out on a wide range of projects.”
Compassion Week activities bring people of all ages and abilities together to support more than 50 nonprofits focusing on basic needs such as food, shelter, education and homelessness as well as supporting veterans, older adults and environmental efforts. Since its inception, more than 18,000 volunteers have participated in 975 Compassion Week projects/activities at 85 organizations on the Peninsula and in the South Bay.
