It’s our honor to be a presenting sponsor at the Future Hard at Work Reception,” said Steve Waterloo, CEO of XYZ Graphics.

“The Future. Hard At Work,” the theme and logo that were developed pro bono by Venable Bell & Partners, is indicative of the programmatic work of the San Francisco Conservation Corps and will be highlighted at the reception as Corpsmembers will also be thereto share their experiences.
“The San Francisco Conservation Corps is all about work, sun up to sun down, day in and day out; so it’s great when we gather once a year to have fun for the Corps staff and Corpsmembers to take stock of their great work and celebrate with the community,” said Bob Molineaux of Venables Bell & Partners, Co-Chair of the Fund Development Committee. He added, “With the Corps greening San Francisco’s public spaces and achieving yearly stats such as diverting 221 tons from our landfills, providing professional services to over 100 large scale events with tens of thousands of people, planting and creating 22 community gardens and playgrounds and participating in over 11,000 hours of education to help Corpsmembers get a high school diploma that had been unattainable for various life challenging reasons, it’s important to stop and breathe and relish our accomplishments with our partners and the community.”
