Project Snapshot: Ms. S from the Bayview The Project: Mrs. S has been living in her Bayview home for 38 years, after her house on Harrison Street burned down. She had previously lived in Mississippi until moving to San Francisco in the late 1950’s and making a career of managing the University of California’s lottery system. She retired in 1984. Why We Love Them: Mrs. S has a big, multi-generational San Francisco family! She has five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren! RTSF’s repairs will help her home become a safe place for her family to visit. The Rebuilding Day Team: Returning project lead Thom Buchanan oversaw the project, with Winnie Liew and Andrea Serra from Transbay Cable and Maureen Blume from Towers Watson serving as volunteer captains.

A big thank you as well to any volunteers who weren’t already mentioned. Pulling off this project was a real team effort and we needed every single body that showed up that day, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to complete our ambitious goals!
