Family House, San Francisco - September 11, 2010

   
About the Event...

On September 11th, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m at 1234 10th Ave. between Lincoln and Irving streets in San Francisco, ABC volunteers undertook a number of maintenance projects at Family House, an amazing organization that provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the UCSF Children's Hospital. Volunteers assisted by painting rooms, gardening, and disinfecting toys at the Koret Family House. We also got to meet some of the small children living there while recovering from treatment. ABC would like to send a big thank you to our volunteers that were able to help out that day, and to Greg Mora, the Family House volunteer coordinator for helping organize this event and for being such a great host while we were there.

Below are some pictures of the event:
