PILF is helping sponsor one of the monthy workdays at the AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park on Saturday, March 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
This is a rare opportunity to spend the day working in a national monument with a seriously diverse group of San Franciscans. Saturday begins with coffee and bagels and then volunteers are split into different work groups. At noon everyone gathers for a circle ceremony where announcements are read, the group observes a moment of silence for those we have lost, and the sponsors of the day are acknowledged. There are usually tours of the grove and always a lunch provided at 12:30. It’s truly a great experience and many first timers become regular volunteers.
Also, if you need PILF volunteer hours, this is an excellent chance to get them.
