AIT-San Francisco Volunteers Get Involved to Serve Low-Income Community Members

The team at AIT-San Francisco banded together late last year to volunteer time in an AIT Cares effort at the Samaritan House in nearby San Mateo, California.

While Samaritan house serves low-income families and individuals by meeting basic needs including clothing, shelter, health care and counseling, the SFO co-workers did their part by assisting with food prep and food distribution on their day at the non-profit.

"Our whole team showed up. We peeled about 100 pounds of potatoes and distributed food for over a hundred families!" said the AIT-San Francisco Station Manager. "We work as a team at work and we worked well together serving our community. The people at Samaritan House appreciated how we really pitched in. It was a great reminder that we are called upon to serve in the communities where we live and conduct business."
