Help Kids in Need this Holiday Season

December 2017

Support the Firefighters Toy Program this Holiday Season


This holiday season, Ground Floor is proud to support the San Francisco Firefighters Local 798 Toy Program. The program, which is the oldest and largest of its kind in the country, helps ensure that no child is without a toy during the holidays. This year the Firefighters are sending trucks to Napa and Sonoma to deliver toys to kids affected by the recent fires. We hope that you will join us in supporting this wonderful holiday tradition by donating money or toys to the program. Click here to donate online.


Ground Floor Sponsors Screening of Dolores


You may associate the famous rallying cry “¡Sí, se puede!” with Cesar Chavez, but in fact the phrase was coined by his United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta. This is just one of the many fascinating things we learned about this legendary, yet often underappreciated, social justice activist at a screening of the documentary Dolores at the Brava Theater on Sunday night. We were delighted to support the screening, organized by our good friend Roberto Hernandez at Carnaval, and share our tickets with the local Mission community. Best of all: Dolores herself turned up to speak to the crowd and challenge us to be leaders in our communities.


Meaning and Work


As the year soon comes to an end, we have given a lot of thought to our work as a firm and the victories we helped our clients achieve in 2017. From big regulatory wins at City Hall to permit approvals, to strengthening relationships in every corner of the city, no task has felt too small or insignificant. We love that our work has a positive impact on the community. Consider reading more about the purpose behind our work in the inaugural Meaning & Work Series published by our friends at Schaffer & Combs here.
