We are Volunteer Powered!

Volunteers are needed for our upcoming Moving Day San Francisco walk on May 9, 2020. Our most valuable resource are our volunteers because YOU make things ‘move’.

If you would like to join the Moving Day San Francisco Committee please click here to sign-up. Or if you want to be a day-of event volunteer please click here.

All volunteers will be given specific instructions on their responsibilities AND will get a volunteer t-shirt at check-in on the day of the event.
