Help Plan A Better Way’s Gala
Our Gala Steering Committee helps create a magical evening for A Better Way while raising funds and awareness for our work. You can bring your energy and talents by serving on the auction, sponsorship, marketing, logistics or host sub-committee. Meetings are held in the evening once per month and much of the work can be done from your location.

One Day and Short-Term Projects

Event Help
A Better Way hosts a variety of events – from fundraisers to family events – throughout the year. Volunteers are needed on the day-of events to help with set-up, registration, kids’ activities, food prep and more! A great way to meet new people while supporting a great cause.

Host a Toy Drive/Back-to-School Drive
A Better Way supports the low-income families we serve during the holiday season with gifts for children that are generously donated by caring community members. You may donate to our gift drive, or coordinate a Toy Drive at your place of business, to help us meet this need for families. We also need backpacks and school supplies each fall for kids as they return to school. Contact us to learn how to set up a drive or make an in-kind donation.

Bring your creative idea or special talent to A Better Way and we will be happy to work with you! For more information about volunteering, call (510) 601-0203 today!
