Female Athlete Volunteers supported over 50 CHARITIES in 160 projects across San Diego county last year, and our members volunteered over 2,800 hours of their time AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN GOODS to support these local organizations!
Female Athlete Volunteers (FAV) is a San Diego based teen organization connecting female athletes with volunteer opportunities to support their local community. Our goal is to develop young women to become active leaders and have fun along the way! We are excited to kickoff our 10th season of FAV in September 2021.
In 2020-2021, FAV consisted of 230 members representing 26 different middle and high schools in San Diego. While Covid-19 interrupted most of our face to face volunteer activities, our members got creative and found new ways to contribute to our community. Our projects included feeding the homeless, creating care packages for clients of Meals on Wheels, writing cards to seniors who were isolated because of COVID, donating children's books to refugees, making blankets and toys and collecting food for animals, monthly beach cleanups, sorting and organizing clothes at a charity thrift shop, helping foster children celebrate their birthdays with "Birthday Party in a Bag", collecting soccer gear for children in Ghana, creating sensory boxes for Alzheimer's patients, Christmas parties for preschoolers, creating fall door art and Christmas ornaments for seniors living in a senior center, food packaging to help fight hunger, meal preparation for the homeless, Christmas stockings for children who are victims of domestic violence, and many more.
We expect our 2021 - 2022 season to be even busier with the return of more face to face activities!
Our 2021-2022 season will start 8/22/2021 and will end 5/29/2022
