Euclid’s Day of Service with Lava Mae and Startups Give Back

Euclid’s Day of Service with Lava Mae and Startups Give Back

By Makenna Nielsen | Day of Service | 29 November, 2016

This week, the Euclid team volunteered with Lava Mae and Startups Give Back for our quarterly Day of Service at the Lava Mae Pop-Up Care Village near the Civic Center of San Francisco.

What is a Pop-Up Care Village, you ask? Think Off-the-Grid food trucks, but with a myriad of services: Lava Mae showers, clothing tents, haircuts, mobile medical clinics, hot meals, and more.

The entire Euclid team had an amazing time giving back to our community and spending time in our beautiful city!

Volunteering at the Lava Mae Pop-Up Care Village:

After making the quick trek over to the Civic Center area for the Pop-Up Care Village event, the team spent the afternoon checking in guests, guiding guests through the Pop-Up Care Village, serving lunch and greeting guests at the vendor/partner stations:

We even got to warm up by taking turns riding on the smoothie bike blender:

We are so glad that we were able to spend our afternoon volunteering with Lava Mae and Startups Give Back. The event had an incredible turnout and seemed to make a huge impact on everyone in attendance!
