BAY AREA! Get involved and give back this holiday season:
I am thrilled to announce that I will be participating in several charity drives this month. I’m working with several different people and organizations to try and raise toys for children and winter coats for the needy. If you’re in the San Francisco/Oakland area your support would be greatly appreciated. Here are some events going on THIS WEEKEND:
The homie L*Roneous throws toy drives every year, and this year he’s generously decided to throw one for the formerly-homeless families I work with in the Tenderloin. The goal is to collect 50 toys for boys and girls of all ages.
The SF chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation is celebrating its 7th anniversary by holding a coat drive. Their goal is to receive 300+ donations between now and January.
Break 4 Tots is an event sponsored by the Zulu Nation/Cloud 9 Tribe/Daily City Teens program. They are holding their 7th annual dance competition and canned food/toy drive for Daly City families.
This a complete list of when, where, and what you can donate- the cool thing is that they are all awesome events:
