CONGRATULATIONS TO RESILIENT BAYVIEW FOR HOSTING ITS FIRST EVER NEIGHBORFEST ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7TH!
The Bayview Community came out to have a good time, but they got a whole lot more. The Bayview Community benefitted from the collective efforts of vendors, community partners and sponsors, contributing to the Resource Fair, free lunch, activities and entertainment. Together Resilient Bayview fed over 300 people, promoted 28 health and resilience Resource Fair vendors, trained 45 people in CPR, raffled 30 disaster kits and recorded more than 90 Bayview resident contacts for the Resilient Bayview initiative. Neighbors built friendships, learned ways to access education and healthcare, learned how to prepare for stressful events and much, much more.
We want to thank our generous sponsors and donors for making the event possible: Renaissance Parents of Success, SF District Attorney, UCSF, SF Recreation and Parks, Earthquake Country Alliance, Office of Supervisor Malia Cohen, Recology, Bayview YMCA, Golden State Warriors, Fleet Week, Community Youth Center, the Neighborhood Empowerment Network, Imperfect Produce, SF Ice Co and Bayview Senior Services.
