Review for Variety Club of Northern California, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've seen Variety Children's Charity impact the lives of thousands of children in the SF Bay Area over the last 10 years. Whether it's donating adaptive bikes, or raising funds for summer camps, or running toy drives that generate thousands of gifts during the holidays, or co-sponsoring easter egg hunts with other local charities - it is truly amazing the amount of joy they are able to bring to the families of children with various physical needs. Variety is truly a special organization that continues to give back to the community and the underserved children across Northern California.

Review for Variety Club of Northern California, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since joining the Variety Board last summer, it has been a truly rewarding experience on many levels. I have met so many amazing individuals, and at the end of the day, we all share the common goal of positively impacting the lives of children in our community. Through the various sponsorship & mobility programs in place, we are able to see that goal come to fruition in a very tangible way. Variety is able to make a difference because of our engaging events (children's holiday parties, movie screenings, Gatsby Ball, toy drives, charity partnerships) and we have a great time while doing it!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working as a liason for children & families who apply for adaptive bikes and other mobility programs

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

Personally throw more movie events to generate funds for the children!
