Sun Compiles Updated Listing of Places to Volunteer in Alameda

The Alameda Sun has always respected the Alameda community’s sense of volunteerism. We often receive phone calls asking if Sun staff know of places where people can volunteer their time. In that spirit the Sun has created a volunteer listing, also available online at To add a business or organization to the list, send an email to or call 263-1471. 

We would like to thank The City of Alameda and The Alameda Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the database. 

Volunteer listings are free of charge and include the name, location, contact person, phone, email and website information for the various opportunities.
