Rating: 5 stars  

I will always be a loyal supporter to SF Smiles. Whatever I donate, from socks to furniture, I know that SF Smiles will give back to our community. I had the privilege to volunteer and see first hand the wonderful miracles this organization produces. Chad, his beautiful family, and staff have been furnishing homes, feeding the poor, and giving hope to the homeless for a promising future. 5 stars - All Smiles -7x7 Miles :-)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

….buy a 2nd sticker mobile and make more people smile :-)

SFSmiles has been a solid supporter of my non-profit, Spectrum Surf Camps. Chad has been instrumental in getting the word out on fundraising events and procured equipment, 2 longboard surfboards worth at least $500, for free. Without his help, we would not have had a successful 1st year. A wonderful non-profit helping other non-profits!

On the many outings I have made with Chad, I have personally witnessed truck loads of furniture, baby items, clothes and sometimes even food and water being delivered to SF families in need. SF Smiles truly brings smile after smile to families in the community, delivery after delivery! Chad's passion for helping others and his drive to make a difference is heart warming and contagious.

About a year ago, I was moving out of a one bedroom apartment to a single room. I had dressers, bookcases, a couch, and kitchenware that I wanted to donate. SFSmiles made it extremely easy to donate. Chad came and pick up the donations and made me smile when he thanked me for my contribution on FB. I have recommend SFSmiles to several of my friends.

In 2011, Papa Christensen made a special trip out to my home in the Oakland Hills to pick up several large gallons of exterior house paint and bags of clothing, and transported them to various appropriate projects in the city. The work SFSmiles does is heartwarming and extraordinary, spearheaded by Papa's kindness and personableness. Thank you, SFSmiles, for all you do!

SF Smiles, has continued to help the poor at no interest of benefiting from it.
Many organizations call them selves non-proffits, while always taking some share and or collecting from those that don't have the resources to purchase all much needed items.
In junction with private / for profit companies, SF Smiles can continue serving SF with Its motive beautiful purpose.
I strongly recommend any support that can be given for such a great organization, and Its members!

Let's keep SF smiling :-)

The core members of SF Smiles have had years of experience figuring out the needs of the many communities here in San Fran. If there is one thing you can do to counteract the gentrification of the city, it would be to support SF Smiles. Families that can barely afford to live here are receiving goods, furniture, schools supply's and Food from SF smiles. Helping SF Smiles means helping long time residents fight the pressure to leave their homes for more affordable but far away housing.

Thank you ...

SFSmiles' founding philosophy and practice puts people, kindness and smiles first. Chad and the SFSmiles team work tirelessly to fulfill the needs of so many community members, and they do so with a dignity and respect that honors both the giver and the receiver. I have gladly given to SFSmiles and seen how deeply they impact our community. SFSmiles is a SFTreasure.
