San Francisco

San Francisco Food Bank  -- SITE FILLED!  (Try one of the other sites below or check back as we may add a third site!)
12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
900 Pennsylvania Avenue in a Warehouse, San Francisco, CA

During the project shift, volunteers help to get food ready to be distributed to soup kitchens, food pantries, after-school programs, and all of the other 600+ places that feed people in need for free throughout the city.  Projects typically involve sorting donations from food drives and grocery stores, repackaging bulk items into more useful portions, cleaning and boxing fresh produce, or stocking grocery shelves.  In a single shift, you can work with food that will impact thousands throughout SanFrancisco.  This site can accomodate up 50 volunteers.

 San Francisco

 Yale NorCal Association of Asian American Yale Alumni Day of Service Project at Angel Island 

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Angel Island Ferry, 21 Main St., Tiburon, CA 94920, San Francisco, CA

Come and join AAAYA's Northern California chapter as we participate in the Yale Day of Service at theAngel Island Immigration Station.  Located in the middle of San Francisco Bay and regarded as the "Ellis Island of the West," Angel Island Immigration Station was routinely the first stop for immigrants crossing the Pacific Ocean between 1910 and 1940. It is an important part of California and Asian American history, with incomparable vistas of the Bay. 

Once we get to the island, we'll take a tour of the barracks (visit www.aiisf.org for all the history of this site, through which thousands of Asian and other immigrants came to this country) and then get to work!  We will focus on landscape beautification (a.k.a. weeding, cleaning of the site and the stairs to the barracks, etc.). We will also be setting up the site for a poetry reading the next day, part of the programs of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation.
