May 5th is Giving Tuesday!

Mark your calendars! Booker T. Washington Community Service Center will be participating in Giving Tuesday on May 5th, 2020. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to continue to provide enrichment programs, senior wellness and teen and our transition aged youth transitioning out of foster care for our community. Giving Tuesday is a powerful national day of giving, raising funds and generating awareness as we cope with Covid-19 pandemic. Our fundraising platform has even agreed to charge a minimum transaction fee, so that more of your donation goes towards building our community service center. Can you help us toward rebuilding our services after this Covid-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Update

As you know the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Booker T. Washington Community Service Center here in San Francisco. We are facing the challenge of both keeping our young people safe and healthy by following Local and CDC guidelines and providing educational opportunities and resources for them and their families. We need your support more than ever as our team continues living by our motto of doing “whatever it takes” and implementing our mission into the community why our doors are closed. We must make sure our families have what they need during these uncertain times by providing care and support to our organization the best we can. Will you consider making a donation today?
