Kit-making for Code Tenderloin Participants

When: Tuesday, September 24, 5:30pm-6:30pm 
Where: The Borgia Room, Westin St. Francis Hotel

After General Session wraps up on Tuesday, you will have a chance to directly support Code Tenderloin and make a tangible impact by building hygiene and interview kits that will be distributed to the community and individuals they serve. 

Hygiene kits will provide immediate support to Code Tenderloin’s newcomers, many of whom are homeless, and interview kits will help graduates of their code camps find jobs and transition back to employment.  

“By taking the time to make kits for people who truly need them, you’re not just putting an item in a bag. You’re letting the community know that you care and understand what they are going through” - Donna Hilliard, Director of Programs, Code Tenderloin
