Join Our Volunteer Crew
Join our great team of volunteers and help sustain and grow the “quiet revolution” of affordable, community-based acupuncture.
Receiving free acupuncture is part of your volunteering experience! All our active volunteers receive regular acupuncture at Sarana and become members of the POCA co-op.
Cleaning & Laundry
We need a weekly or bi-weekly volunteer housekeeper to help keep the clinic sparkling and tidy. We also have a need for laundry volunteers for 1-2 times per month for about 2 hours each time (using the laundromat in the same shopping plaza as Sarana).
Weekly reception shifts are between 2 and 5 hours long, and training and support are provided. Basic computer skills and the ability to multitask while remaining friendly and calm are very important. We ask our volunteers for a minimum commitment of 6 months.
To learn more about any of these volunteer opportunities and to apply, please email us at email@example.com, attn: Volunteer Coordinator, call the clinic, or just stop by and ask for an application. You can also download the Volunteer Application Packet here.
Spread the Word!
Your referrals help us grow and serve more folks. Please help us spread the word by visiting, liking and sharing our Facebook page, and leaving feedback on our Yelp or Google+ pages. Pick up some “friend cards”* at the front desk next time you visit us and give them to your friends, so they can discover the benefits of acupuncture!
*With a friend card their first acupuncture treatment will be free, but $10 initial paperwork fee still applies.
Help Us Make Connections
If you work or volunteer for a local community-based organization that may be interested in hosting a free presentation about the benefits of acupuncture, please let us know.
We are also happy to donate gift certificates for free acupuncture to local raffles and fundraisers. Please contact us if you have one coming up!
If you have any media contacts who you think might be interested in writing an article or doing a radio interview about accessible affordable healthcare, please help us connect with them.
Shop Online Through AmazonSmile
If you shop on Amazon, you can support us with no cost to you, through the AmazonSmile donation program. Doing this will not affect your shopping experience in any way, and you can use your regular Amazon account.
Use and bookmark this link when you shop and then just sign into your account and shop as you normally would. Sarana will receive 0.5% of your qualifying purchase (most of them are) from Amazon’s charitable foundation, and it costs you nothing extra!
Sarana Community Acupuncture is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a registered California public benefit corporation. Your donations help us continue to support our community’s health and well-being and to honor our commitment to keep care affordable and accessible for everyone in our community who needs us – regardless of their income.
Our low sliding scale is intended to keep the clinic doors open and bills paid. However, when a client needs significantly more treatment than they can afford, we make every effort to reduce our rate as much as possible, below the sliding scale. Your support enables us to do this with greater ease and frequency without compromising financial stability of our organization.
