All Campus Opportunities
Random acts of Kindness teams

Join a team that wants to do just that - do a "random act of kindness" for someone in our community!  Get notified via email of a need and if you have the time and/or resources to "act", then go for it!  

Examples of "random acts" include donating a box of food to a single parent or senior, sending a note of encouragement to someone in the hospital, or collecting blankets for our homeless community.  We also share last-minute "shout-outs" when local non-profits are short on volunteers.  



We have opened up the Response to COVID-19 fund. These resources will be used to help our church manage the burden COVID-19 has placed on our staff, all of you who call Cornerstone home, as well as be able to come alongside our East Bay neighbors with timely help. Click on the button below to give.

Livermore Campus 

We have a volunteer that is packing 200-250 lunches for the homeless community in Livermore each month - When we were meeting on campus, we packed these the first Sunday of the month!  We are in need of items for these sack lunches to be filled!  Click here for the amazon wish list of items. These will be ongoing monthly needs - please help us provide consistent food for these folks!

If you or someone you know has one to donate, our homeless ministry is in need of a chest freezer.  Email if you can help!  

Help our local homeless community have a warm meal (regular meal programs in the Tri-Valley have been reduced).  Cornerstone volunteers, use the donated gift cards to purchase meals and deliver directly to those in need.

Let’s provide a way for our homeless neighbors to stay connected to family and other important contacts. By providing solar chargers for their cell phones, we can help meet their physical needs (i.e. making doctor appointments) as well as their needs to fight loneliness and stay emotionally healthy and safe.  With so many programs still closed, many of our homeless neighbors are unable to charge their devices. 

You can help by purchasing one of the 280 solar chargers needed to help our homeless neighbors throughout the East Bay!

During check-out, when selecting a shipping address, please choose “Homeless Neighbors”.
