Celebrating a Decade of Service


By Celeste Altus Comment

San Francisco-based nonprofit One Brick is celebrating its 10th anniversary by promoting this Saturday, January 15 as a National Day of Service, a tie-in to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday weekend.

The charity, which organizes group volunteer activities to help other nonprofits, will also hold an award ceremony at the San Francisco Food Bank, honoring community leaders such as the Reverend Cecil Williams,  founder of Glide  Memorial  Church; and Paul Ash, executive director of the Food Bank.

South Bay residents can combine this with another longstanding successful MLK event, the Freedom Train, a $10 San Francisco round-trip and Civil Rights history lesson, put on by Cal Train.
