As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe.

Tree San Diego needs your help to water 500 street trees planted in Chula Vista and Logan Heights.

Please wear closed toed shoes. Bring water, hat and sunscreen if desired. Safety vests and gloves are provided.
