I recently finished a six-year term on the Board of Directors of Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, which delivers three million meals a year to homebound seniors. During my tenure on the Meals on Wheels Board, we raised a capital campaign of $45m to build a new state of the art kitchen to increase threefold the number of people served.
Stepping off the Meals on Wheels board means I have more time to give back and serve the home that I love. This is what led me to volunteer this year to serve on Sausalito’s Economic Development Advisory Committee where I was elected Vice-Chair. There I led some creative thinking on how to buy the Bank of America property and what to do with it. I also proposed revisions to the Statement on Racial Justice, which were adopted for recommendation and served on an ad hoc team that helped expedite building permits for a local business that was in danger of closing without them.
