During the summer of 2019, one of our corporate partners was moving employees to new offices in San Francisco and had some amazing like-new furniture and equipment available for donation to local non-profits, including Project Open Hand.
Local non-profit, Project Open Hand has been doing some impressive work helping expedite recovery for those with HIV/AIDS, cancer and diabetes, serving “meals with love” in The Bay Area. Green Standards is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with them to provide free furniture and equipment to improve their offices and shared spaces for employees and clients alike.
About Project Open Hand – meals with love
At Project Open Hand, their medically-tailored food helps clients recover from illness, get stronger and lead healthier lives. Project Open Hand services assist those with HIV/AIDS as well as critical illnesses such as breast cancer and diabetes. They provide daily warm, nutritious meals for seniors and adults with disabilities.
Project Open Hand’s vision is that no one who is sick or elderly in our community will go without nutritious meals with love.
