Volunteer for Mandir. Community Service Hours for High school students

The Mandir in Irvine is a non profit religious organization, completely managed and run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Mandir serves as a site for connecting with the community and a place of religious worship for adherents of Sanatan Dharma in Irvine and surrounding areas in Orange County- living far away from their homeland in India. In order to foster a spirit of ownership and cooperation, Mandir offers opportunities to volunteer your time and services in the service of Dharma. Your valuable service will go a long way towards helping us maintain upkeep and sanctity of our place of worship. Please do sign up (See attached link for month of July) for a slot to volunteer your time. Additionally, High School Students will now be able to earn Community Service hours!
