Working closely with a number of local nonprofits, sf.citi frequently facilitates outreach and tech volunteer opportunities for sf.citi members and their employees. Each year, we help organize several industry-wide days of action that bring the San Francisco tech community together to give back to those in need.
One City Gives
2019 Holiday Day of Action for Young People Experiencing Homelessness
On December 13, sf.citi partnered with Larkin Street Youth Services to host the second edition of One City Gives, an industry-wide day of volunteering to support our local community ahead of the holidays. Hosted at Zendesk, 2019’s One City Gives event focused on the more than 1,100 young people who experience homelessness on any given night in San Francisco. We brought together close to 100 tech volunteers to pack kits filled with basic essentials and hand-written holiday cards. Volunteers then delivered the completed kits to Larkin Street’s main center in the Tenderloin where they were distributed to young people throughout the City.

2018 Holiday Day of Action for Seniors in the Tenderloin
In December 2018, sf.citi partnered with Meals on Wheels San Francisco to host the inaugural One City Gives, an industry-wide day of volunteering to wrap and deliver gifts to seniors in the Tenderloin. Assemblymember David Chiu, District 6 Supervisor-Elect Matt Haney, Founder and CEO of Affirm Max Levchin, sf.citi Executive Director Jennifer Stojkovic, and Meals on Wheels San Francisco Board Member Jose Allen gave opening remarks. More than 150 employees from sf.citi member companies then set out to deliver holiday gifts to over 1,000 seniors in the heart of San Francisco. Get a full recap of One City Gives on our blog.
9/11 Day of Action
In 2018, sf.citi became a co-organizer of the annual Bay Area Meal Pack for 9/11 Day. Partnering with 9/11 Day and other local nonprofits, we galvanize volunteers in the Bay Area to turn a day of tragedy into a day of doing good. On September 11, sf.citi and our members proudly join businesses, policymakers, and volunteers across the nation to pack millions of meals for our neighbors in need.
