David Collins was the founding coordinator of the Depot who launched the idea back in 2002. He managed and grew the Depot’s reach to serve over 200 educators per year. After a long battle with illness, he passed away in May of 2015. David is survived by his partner and their two sons. He was a long time classified employee at City College of San Francisco and in the 12 years dedicated himself to helping hundreds of teachers get valuable donated equipment to run their science programs. We are forever grateful for his humor, creativity and his passionate energy towards making sure that science educators got all the supplies they needed. We all will miss him.
