Volunteer for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

The success of Walk a Mile in Her Shoes depends on the support of more than 100 volunteers who assist with shoe distribution, day of support, etc.  We are currently recruiting volunteers (individuals and groups) who want to help make Walk a Mile in Her Shoes a great experience for everyone.  

All volunteers will receive a Team WEAVE shirt on the day of the event. Volunteers who wish to stay and enjoy the festivities after their shift are welcome to do so. Please note volunteers may not consume alcohol while volunteering and while wearing their Team WEAVE shirt.

If you would like to volunteer and be part of this great event please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Nichoel at nmenicucci@weaveinc.org or 916-319-4907
