We are deeply grateful for Rebecca Zito’s leadership over the last year as our Volunteer Coordinator. Rebecca is brilliantly creative, resourceful, savvy and pure joy to be around. One of the highlights of 2013 was the Valentine’s event she planned at Glide here in San Francisco. They describe themselves as a “radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles or poverty and marginalization.”
Through a worldwide coordination of crafting events, Rebecca worked with volunteers to create 750 valentines. These were hand delivered by San Francisco Project volunteers while we served meals at Glide on Valentines day. A beautiful chain of events on so many levels. And to think that valentines were crafted as far away as Turkey.
Rebecca leaves us as she dives deeper into her career in urban economic development and community relations. She started volunteering for the Project in 2012 and will continue to add her joy and perspective through the legacy of work here and the life she leads as an example of a deeply engaged citizen of the world. Thank you Rebecca!
