March Open House
There were many happy teachers who walked away with loads of great supplies at our March 19th Open House. See Pictures Here. We had 96 people, many of them new, who attended and 66 giveaway participants with a total amount given away of $131,311. Thanks to the Friday volunteers, all that helped set up and especially those that stuck around to clean up!
CCSF Clean Up Crew
A big THANK YOU goes out to the City College of San Francisco Chinatown Campus Community Service ESL student volunteers who spent hours on St. Patrick’s Day cleaning and organizing the Depot ahead of our March Open House. Check out the great pictures HERE
UCSF Delivers a Truckload
After the March Open House, Delancey Street Movers delivered a truckload of large equipment and smaller supplies from lab breakdown at UCSF Laurel Heights. The delivery included refrigerators, centrifuges, cabinets, glassware and many other items. It’s first-come, first serve at our May Open House, so BYOT (bring your own truck).
Depot Becomes Nonprofit
The Depot started in 2002 and has been operated by City College of San Francisco through the Bio-Link ever since. But, as of March 2016, we have incorporated the Depot as its own nonprofit. This opens up the Depot for direct donations, grants and expansion to other locations. Thanks Latham & Watkins for helping us with our application!
