Catholic Charities seeks volunteers
to help out at Oakland A's games

Catholic Charities of the East Bay needs volunteers to help extend its winning streak of staffing concession stands at Bay Area sports events.

Training starts March 16 for volunteers to staff four concession stands during Oakland A's games at O.com Coliseum. Concession stand managers are also needed. Catholic Charities will earn 10 percent of each day's receipts.

Three hundred volunteers staffed the main concession at the U.S. Open in June in San Francisco, providing CCEB with about $20,000 for program support.

"We learned a lot: how to manage and train volunteers in the fast food concession industry, how to coordinate such a huge event and how to grow the program as a social enterprise to benefit CCEB and its programs," said Frank Malifrando, chief development and public affairs officer at CCEB.

The U.S. Open led to Cal football games and volleyball games. More than 100 volunteers, including participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, got in on the action.

Those participants will be working in the Oakland A's concession stands, but more are needed. Volunteers have included board members, parish supporters — seniors, students, immigrants and clergy.

Volunteers may sign up online at cceb.org or contact the CCEB community engagement manager at 510-768-3142.
