6th Annual YLG Philanthropy Day
We are pleased to announce our sixth annual ULIsf – Young Leaders Group (YLG) philanthropy project!
Last year, fifty YLG members and friends rolled up their sleeves and gave the Edgewood Center for Children and Families a fresh coat of paint and a newly designed and landscaped courtyard.
This year, the YLG has pledged to help with beautification projects at the Willie Mays Boys & Girls Club at Hunters Point. There will be lunch at the event as well as a celebratory happy hour when the work is complete and it is guaranteed to be a fun-filled day with new friends! We will have more details to share as we get closer to the event.
Please contact Chris Banke with any questions.
Willie Mays Boys & Girls Club
The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) provides the only full-service resource for 6 to 18-year-olds on Hunters Point Hill, a community that for decades had desperately lacked services for young people. BGCSF started serving the Hunters Point community in 2005 at the request of Mayor Gavin Newsom and City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who asked BGCSF to transform an old Housing Authority site into a safe haven for local youth. Their partnership has been critical in this historic project. Other key partners include the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants, who built a Junior Giants Field on-site and later led the effort to rename the Club after the great Willie Mays.
Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support: Applied Development Economics, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Louie’s San Francisco, and SummerHill Housing Group.
