San Jose, California's Premier Roller Derby League

Community Service

community service group
 

Every year SVRG partners with local nonprofits to help make San Jose a better place. In 2013, we donated over $1800 of our bout proceeds back into our community, and our league members volunteered 380+ hours with our partners.

Our skaters aren’t afraid to put a little elbow grease into it. We pulled weeds at a VeggieLution community farm, served Thanksgiving dinners to homeless families and helped pack school supplies for needy children, just to name a few. We hope to do even more to help our community in 2014!
