It’s National Volunteer Week! At sf.citi we are so thankful for the volunteers that make our programs run, and we’re taking a moment to recognize YOU.
Circle the Schools impact this school year
One City Forum Thank You
Our One City Forum and event series are both still fairly new, but the success this effort has already achieved is due in large part to the eight Forum members who find the time – on top of their demanding full-time jobs – to come together regularly and advise on ways to effectively engage our larger community on issues that matter to San Francisco.
A very big thank you to our Forum: Eric McDonnell of the United Way of the Bay Area; Sherilyn Adams from Larkin Street Youth Services; Margi English at St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco; Danie Belfield from Meals on Wheels of San Francisco; Katie Ferrick at LinkedIn; Tiffany Apczynski from Zendesk; Amy Lebold at AdRoll; and, Charlie Hale from Pinterest.
Dropbox Volunteers Recognized
Dropbox’s Joe Wheeler with Mission High School Principal Eric Guthertz.
Last week, sf.citi member company Dropbox was awarded the San Francisco Education Fund’s Corporate Distinguished Service Award at its Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony. The award recognized Dropbox employees for their volunteerism, including their Circle the Schools partnership with Mission High School.
“Dropbox has been an incredible partner to Mission High,” said Principal Eric Guthertz, who nominated the company for the award. By mentoring students in and out of the classroom, Guthertz says Dropbox has “helped us to address how to break down barriers for students that have historically not been able to access careers in technology.”
Shout out to Dropbox for investing valuable time and resources in our community and empowering the next generation of tech employees.
