We Built It Together
October 4 was a great day in Bayview-Hunter's Point as hundreds of volunteers from the community, from Zynga, and from FACES SF, built a new playground in six hours! The video below tells the story. It shows how many people working together can accomplish great things. We couldn't have done it without your support!
Bothin Foundation Grants $35,000 for After School Passenger Van
We are delighted to announce that the Bothin Foundation has awarded FACES SF a grant of $35,000 to support the purchase of a new passenger van for our After School program. The new van upgrades our transportation capabilities and allows us to take more children on field trips. A heartfelt thank you to the Bothin Foundation for its support!
Blankets for Toddlers
Florencia Sanchez knitted some beautiful blankets for the children at our Hayes Valley infant/toddler center. Her donation of time was matched by a grant from the McKesson Foundation to cover knitting supplies. As you can see below, the blankets are being put to good use! Many thanks to Florencia and the good folks at McKesson.
