Each year, nearly $50,000 is distributed for NOSC charities and scholarships in the local military community. The only reason NOSC San Diego and The Sand Dollar store are able to do so are because of men and women like you volunteering your time, energy, and a piece of your heart. Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization. There are many ways to volunteer with NOSC San Diego, short-term or long-term!
Do you prefer a leadership role serving on the Executive Board? Do you prefer volunteering in our specialty boutique shop?
Training takes place for 2-3 shifts and is conducted one-on-one or in small groups. You don't have to work alone, you are welcome to bring a buddy to your shift. Partial shifts can be arranged if you can't commit to an entire shift. Store hours are typically 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM. You are not required to commit to a certain amount of days each month, although if you prefer a consistent schedule, we will gladly accommodate.
Additionally, The Sand Dollar Shop has occasional evening and weekend events. There are special projects to be worked on, inventories to be conducted, and several other ways to help the store if you're unable to work a typical shift.
