This is the first in a new series called “Do Good Wednesday” where I’ll call attention to a cause we can all easily contribute towards. Doing good should happen all the time and it shouldn’t be hard. Do Good Wednesday will make it easy for you and your family to make the world a better place…one Wednesday at a time!

Our founder, Meghan Freebeck, was honored as the "Modern Citizen of the Month" for Women's Month this March.

“I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t want to support the community in some way,” said Meghan Freebeck, CEO, Project Homeless Connect and Simply the Basics. Meghan is serving San Francisco by connecting people’s skills and resources with various needs in our community. To quote Meghan, “It’s a lot like match making volunteer’s time and skill sets to ensure they align with a client’s or nonprofit’s goals.”
