Volunteering with Samaritan House

The Sierra Ventures team had a great time at our quarterly volunteer event. This quarter we worked with Samaritan House in San Mateo to stock and tidy up their Holiday Toy Shop which serves more than 3,500 children. The program relies on the community to collect everything they give out at the event which is supported by more than 1,000 volunteers. New toys, new coats, new gifts, and books are available and Santa is even there too!
