Hammer Theatre

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

If you are interested in this project, you MUST register at this link: https://sjsu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEvdemhrjgrGNBxfYobOLxWIcDJjlLcZ0Pz

This is a one-day "Service Event". You are invited to join staff members and volunteers from the Hammer Theatre Center in this virtual gathering to create encouraging cards and letters to share with healthcare workers and patients recovering from COVID-19. We will go over how to write a card or letter, including what to say and inspiration of cards previously created and where to send your final card. There will be time to create and chat with other participants. We are sending letters in the hope that this will help in the fight against isolation and the struggle to recover from this awful disease.

You provide the "PPE" (Paper, Pens, and Envelopes), and we will give you inspiration, and information about where to send them. NO MASKS REQUIRED for this virtual event! Snacks may or may not be available, see your kitchen for details.

If you are inquiring about volunteer hours or need certification for another organization: Attendees will receive an email after the event detailing the time date and act of service which they can complete by self-reporting their own hours. We are unfortunately not able at this time to certify separate organizations individually. Thank you for understanding.

About Hammer Theatre


101 Paseo de San Antonio, San Jose, CA 95113, US

Mission Statement

The Hammer’s mission is to serve the community through works that illustrate the unique culture of creativity, diversity, and innovation in Silicon Valley.


The Hammer Theatre, named after former San José Mayor Susan Hammer and her husband Phil Hammer, a San José Rep Board Trustee, was completed in 1997 via a collaboration between the San José Redevelopment Agency and San José Repertory Theatre Company. This distinctive theatre offered theatrical productions for over seven years for San José and Bay Area patrons and to national acclaim. In March 2016, San José State University reopened the Hammer Theatre as a modern performance venue in the heart of downtown San José. The theatre serves San José’s community and the university through programming that features student, local, and international talent.
