|PbP SF Announces 2012 Partner - PbP|
APRIL 5, 2012 – San Francisco, CA – Project by Project San Francisco (PbP SF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that focuses on issues affecting the Asian American community. To commemorate PbP’s 15th anniversary, the organization today announced that it has named its parent organization, Project by Project, as the non-profit partner for 2012.
In 2012, the volunteers at PbP SF will work to further the organization’s cause and raise awareness within the San Francisco non-profit community. PbP SF aims to reinforce the fact that the organization not only helps other local Pan-Asian non-profit organizations in need, but also strives to motivate and mobilize other young professionals to volunteer within the local community. With this in mind, PbP SF will be holding its annual Tasting Benefit event on September 22, 2012 at the Bently Reserve in San Francisco, to highlight the positive work that Project by Project has done across the country.
PbP SF serves the San Francisco Bay Area and 2012 will mark the organization’s third year in support of positive causes in the community. APA Family Support Services was the first organization to partner with PbP SF. APA Family Support Services (APA) mission is to promote healthy Asian/Pacific Islander children and families by providing family support services to prevent child abuse and domestic violence. APA also advocates culturally competent services for Asians and Pacific Islanders through education, community building and leadership development. APA is the only hospital-based agency offering in-home family support services specifically for Asian Pacific Islander families and children.
In 2011, PbP SF partnrered with OASES to help empower students from low-income households through education, mentorship, and service. OASES has multiple programs that provide youth with opportunities not often offered at their schools including peer leadership, environmental education, diversity education, financial literacy, and the arts. All of OASES’ services are intended for students in Oakland’s Unified School District with limited resources from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
Through partnerships with these local non-profits, PbP SF has raised awareness for each of these organizations through fund-raising acitivites and by highlighting each in the annual PbP Tasting Benefit event. PbP SF pledges to continue championing the causes for both of these organizations, and plans to continue to do so by activating even more young professionals in 2012.
