A note about our generous Foster City Village volunteers:

In order to keep everyone safe, our volunteers cannot provide help lifting or moving heavy objects, or handling requests that carry a higher risk of injury (e.g. clearing gutters, moving furniture, carrying large items from Costco, etc.)

If a member needs a service requiring a licensed profressional, please consult our Resources pages.
