A Year of Giving

May your heart and home be filled with peace and joy this Christmas season. Let’s make 2017 a year of giving of our time and talents!

A few volunteer opportunities in Encinitas include:
Community Resource Center has grown from providing basic needs for families in crisis to offering extensive programs that facilitate the safety, stability, and self-sufficiency of low-income and episodically homeless households – including domestic violence victims. Donate gently used items to their store, help assemble and distribute their holiday baskets (baskets distributed December 17th this year at Del Mar Fairgrounds), or work in the food distribution center. For more information, email

Rancho Coastal Humane Society is dedicated to the rescue and shelter of abandoned companion animals, encouraging adoptions into loving homes. Volunteer by fostering animals until they are old enough to be adopted. Be an animal companion and increase an animals’ chances for adoption by providing needed support and companionship through socializing, training, and grooming dogs, cats, rabbits, and more! Kids 12 and older are also able to volunteer. Contact the volunteer coordinator at 760-753-6413.

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church has, for over 12 years, provided a hot lunch to anyone who stops by the parish hall on a Friday at 1 p.m. Each week, volunteers meet at St. Andrew’s to prepare and serve between 80 and 100 guests. With great food and friendly service, guests are offered dignity they may not have experienced since the last Friday lunch. If you can donate food or help serve email

Volunteering gives both you and your community a gift from the heart. Home North County is not only here to help with all of your real estate needs of buying, selling, leasing, and property management, we also proudly donate our time and a percentage of earned commissions to local charities or programs of our clients’ choice.
