It’s with much sadness that we at Doc’s Clock, are doing another benefit for more victims of another neighborhood fire. On This Friday, 6/24, 1/2 of everything you drink, and 100% of certain special drinks, will go to MEDA. The Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) has graciously agreed to receive and distribute funds for the tenants displaced by Saturday’s fire on Mission Street. Any donations to this fund are tax- deductible and will go directly to the tenants. Dolores Street Community Services and its SRO Collaborative program, who are working directly with the tenants, will work with MEDA to equitably distribute the funds. It’s important to specify at the bottom of the page that these funds are for the “Tenant Fire Fund” (right above the “Submit Donation” button).
During the last benefit, Google matched everything we made. If any of you work for a generous company, with deep pockets, that might offer matching funds, please let us know.
Doc’s will be closed Dec 24-25 for Christmas. We will re-open on the 26th.
Join us on Monday, May 4th, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. There will be free food and drink specials while supplies last and we will run happy hour all night. Festivities start at 5PM. Hope to see you here!
Come join us for a very special happy hour to benefit Waggin Trails Rescue Foundation!
In a word, Waggin’ Trails is a lifesaver. We rescue and transport companion animals scheduled for death due to lack of space in California shelters, as well as other neglected or abused animals. Waggin’ Trails has volunteers throughout the state of California, and friends and partners in many states and Canada.
We’ll have a lot of springtime small dog clothes for sale as well as auction items (specifics to follow.)
50% of the bar tab goes directly to the dogs!
Not only were we able to raise $8,000 thanks to all of you, Google decided to DOUBLE their match, making their total contribution $16K to the fund! That’s a grand total of $24,000 to help the victims of the 22nd/Mission apartment fire. Wow!
Huge thank you to Google and all of the individuals that made this possible by showing up, sharing, contributing, volunteering and showing the true nature of community. It takes a village and the village stepped up!
Now is the time to come together and help our neighbors.
Please join us on Saturday (4pm-2am) for a clothes drive/fundraiser for those displaced by the huge fire Wednesday night. People have lost everything so please bring items such as clothing, computers and toys.
Some items that are especially needed:
- money or gift cards
- women’s Hygiene products (pads, tampons etc)
- socks and underwear
- non-perishable food (bagged/canned/boxed foods, shelf staples, etc)
50% of the bar proceeds will be donated to the displaced families.
Cash is also welcome and will be sent to Zack Crockett’s Gofundme account.
Let’s clean out those closets and help these folks get February off to a better start!
