A Progressive Alamedan

Various writings from a resident of Alameda regarding the political scene. The local perspective of local, state and national politics and a few other odds and ends of local concern. May not be particularly interesting to people outside of the Alameda area.

APC party - a good time had by all, plus big funds raised

Last weekend, David Teeters put on a fundraiser party benefiting Alameda Point Collaborative a non-profit that is working "to end homelessness by providing housing and services to create communities where formerly homeless families and individuals can flourish."

This is truly a wonderful organization that I've been a fan of for many years now. It's one of Alameda's "best kept secrets" but I'm one of many who are trying to help get more people aware of it.

David's party was a big success, and managed to raise over $2000 for a good cause. (If you didn't hear about it, then you must not be on my email list. Send me a message at the address listed at the top of this blog and I'll put you on my informal email list!)

If you missed the party, or if you just want to help, there are a lot of suggestions for how you can help. The list suggests a lot of non-monetary opportunities to get involved, or you can just make a tax-deductable donation online.

This is one of Alameda's most worthy nonprofits (among, for example, BikeAlameda, near and dear to my heart, and the ever-popular Meals on Wheels), and it deserves your helping hand - especially in these lean economic times.
