2018 has been tough. Work, politics, life and then comes 826 Valencia. Like a breath of fresh air. They are a big part of why I keep doing this. Thank you 826 for always lifting my spirits. @826valencia @careohlalalaline #826 #826valencia #nonprofits #octopus #local #localbusiness

It’s #haikuesday again, folks! Let’s celebrate red today; the color of juicy berries, fresh apples, and of course, 826 Valencia!

From the monologue "Why Us?" By Jenny R.
Our students write about immigration issues every day, exploring their fears and sharing their truths. We turn to their words as fuel to keep working toward a better world, and to remember the power of writing to explore these difficult topics. We are endlessly proud of them.

We all know San Francisco’s summers can be gloomy, so let’s enjoy this #haikuesday and dream of orange skies.

Tickets for @cityartssf On Arts series, benefitting our scholarship program, go on sale today! Head over there to get your tickets, support our scholarships for college-bound seniors, and see which amazing humans will be filling these legendary chairs this fall.
