2017 MLK Day of Service in SF’s Bayview Neighborhood

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” 


In honor of MLK Day of Service, Habitat Greater San Francisco's Neighborhood Revitalization program recently teamed up with SF Rec and Park and the Bayview Hunters Point YMCA. Together, with volunteers, we beautified and restored the Youngblood Coleman Playground, a park in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco.


Volunteers gathered together in the Bayview to help clean-up a local park 


Despite the winter chill, more than 100 volunteers came out to help and cleaned up the park's baseball diamond and main walking path. The volunteers' work made a big impact where Bayview residents live, work, and play. 



In a clip from KTVU FOX News below, you can watch highlights from the event and see first-hand the determination of local volunteers who honored the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by making an impact in the lives of their neighbors. 



Habitat Greater San Francisco's Neighborhood Revitalization program works specifically in the Bayview and East Palo Alto neighborhoods to beautify parks and gardens, renovate community assets like community centers and schools and deliver critical home repairs to improve the health, safety and overall well-being of the residents of these communities.  Want to learn more?
