We Got Your Back Benefit Oct. 5 Boddekker .jpg

Forge Development Partners, Bridge Investment Group and the Danna Foundation invite you to a free Youth and Family Fun Day on Saturday, October 5 from 12 to 3 p.m. at Boeddeker Park at 246 Eddy Street in the Tenderloin. Enjoy lawn games, activities for children, a bounce house, live music and refreshments; and get an up-close look at a fire engine thanks to the San Francisco Fire Department.

As part of the day, Forge, Bridge and the Danna Foundation are teaming up with the Tenderloin Community Benefit District and the Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco to make life just a little bit easier for the homeless by stuffing backpacks filled with daily necessities like reusable water bottles, toiletries, socks and other items. These will be provided to Tenderloin nonprofits including Compass Family Services, Larkin Street Youth Services, Code Tenderloin and Care Through Touch Institute for distribution to the homeless.

Interested in lending a hand? Volunteers will be stuffing backpacks from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Click the link below to email Lane Kiefaber if you wish to volunteer.
