Event description

Description

Join VCO’s Thirsty Thursday as we decorate pumpkins, sip black magic cocktails, and chomp on spooky treats to benefit San Francisco non-profit 826 Valencia. The previous Thirsty Thursday in September collected enough snacks for two months of programming at 826 Valencia's Tenderloin Center. We hope to beat that goal!

The event is free, just bring a healthy snack to enter!

At the request of 826 Valencia’s schools and partner organizations, we prefer snacks with no nuts and tend to lean toward the healthier choices. Our list includes, but is not limited to:

  • Nature Valley Granola Bars

  • Fiber One Bars

  • Other granola bars (no nuts)

  • Individually wrapped Pop Chips

  • Individually wrapped pretzels, popcorn, cookies, crackers, or chips

  • Dried fruits


ABOUT 826 VALENCIA

826 Valencia hosts students from several area nonprofits, including the Boys' and Girls' Club, GLIDE, De Marillac Academy, and the Salvation Army Kroc Center for vigorous writing workshops and support each afternoon. The Tenderloin Center also invites entire classes of middle and high school students from across San Francisco to write and record stories in their podcasting field trip program.

It should be noted that 826 Valencia runs on the generosity of others at both of their writing centers (Mission and Tenderloin). It is through the support of more than 1,200 volunteers, many generous donors, and other invested community members that they reached more than 7,000 students last year through their free writing, tutoring, and publishing programs. 826 Valencia published students' stories ranging from family hardships, to immigration, to robot cats and other quirky characters within 36 books highlighting the important voices of our city's youth. Writing is essential to success in school, career, and beyond and we are so grateful to have you on board!
