The PHC Community Day of Service is a one-stop shop service event where individuals experiencing homelessness can access over 100 critical resources such as medical, dental, and vision care, and free groceries. By mobilizing city and community agencies, as well as thousands of volunteers, we are able to ensure that our participants receive holistic care in a dignified setting.
- Services are available from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
- Entry wristband distribution begins at 7:30 AM on event day. Wristbands are available until the event closes at 3:00 PM. Look for the red tent on the Grove St sidewalk at Polk St (SE corner).
- Participants must have a wristband to enter the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and access services

Please note that what makes our event so special is that we provide services on site. You must directly offer a service, rather than information or referrals to another date/location.

What to wear: Most volunteer positions involve standing and/or walking, so be sure to dress comfortably. All new volunteers will be given a volunteer t-shirt when you check in at Volunteer Central.

What NOT to bring: Please leave all valuables at home. We DO NOT have a coat check or secure place for you to leave items. If you have a fanny-pack, now might be the perfect time to break it out!
