Sedgwick San Francisco Visits the Food Bank
On Saturday, July 23, a group of Sedgwick volunteers rolled up their sleeves to pack boxes of food at the San Francisco Food Bank. Within a few hours, our volunteers, including families and friends packed 1,360 cases of food to be distributed to seniors in need. These boxes represented 30,080 pounds of food (19 tons!), such as juice, cereal, rice and canned goods. Our team’s efforts far exceeded a normal “production run” of 1000 boxes. Well done! A special thanks to Kirsten Mickelson and Allison Low for arranging the event and bringing the snacks, and to all our volunteers: Kirsten and Allison, Michael Favela, Patty Santanna, Daria Alfieri, LaVerne Young, Sia Scates, Bruce Celebrezze, Dennis Rolstad and daughter Kristen, Maria Jardeleza and friends, Jonathon Lee, Alana Searle and Jurnee Searle, Andrea Goodman, Erin Yoshino and friend, Kate Hilsenbeck, Kelvin Chan, Kimberly Jackanich, Sonia Thakuri and Taylor Meehan.
Over the past three weeks, volunteers from our office have planted eight trees in San Francisco, boxed 1,360 cases of food and raised nearly $12,000 for Aids Walk. Over the past four years, our office has planted 30 trees in the City through Friends of the Urban Forest, sorted and packed 155,760 pounds of food (nearly 78 tons) at the Food Bank and helped bring joy to 117 children through our Holiday Head start program. Congratulations and thank you to our volunteers – good deeds and great work.
