Levi’s® Community Advocate Program
Every year, the San Francisco Giants and Levi’s team up on the Community Advocate program to highlight and support nonprofits in the Bay Area. This year, we are once again centering the campaign on organizations working on gun violence prevention in our communities.
Through a season-long campaign on select Orange Friday’s at Oracle Park, the San Francisco Giants and Levi’s are supporting four local non-profits, LIVE FREE, Mom’s Demand Action, United Playaz and Youth ALIVE!, to raise awareness around gun violence prevention. From the second Friday game of April to the second to the last Friday game in September at Oracle Park, we’ll be highlighting the issue and these four organizations who are educating youth about critical life skills and implementing proven methodologies to make our communities safer. Levi’s will donate $25,000 to each of these four organizations, for a total of $100,000.
Each organization will be recognized at the game with a complete in-game experience, including tickets to a suite, batting practice experience pre-game for 2-4 members from each organization, and a scoreboard welcome. A PSA about the program with Gabe Kapler and Chip Bergh will be played as well.
Homeless Prenatal Program
Homeless Prenatal Program during COVID-19
Having reworked its service delivery in response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, HPP continues to serve homeless and low-income families. The agency has seen the need for support increase exponentially since the start of the pandemic. Families who were once getting by are seeking support for the first time, and families who were already struggling are facing increased and more intense challenges.
HPP seeks to break the cycle of family homelessness and poverty, and its COVID-19 emergency response fits squarely within that mission. Homeless families, under-housed families, and families at risk of homelessness are particularly vulnerable during this crisis for a variety of reasons. HPP is committed to being there for families both now and after the crisis has calmed; to ensuring that families have enough food today and that they can make rent in coming months.
