SF Rec and Park Welcomes Golden State Warriors on the Day of Volunteer Service
Warriors and Esurance Come Out to Golden Gate Park for WE G.I.V.E.
SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department in partnership with the Golden State Warriors and Esurance hosted the WE G.I.V.E. volunteer service event at Golden Gate Park’s Music Concourse. SF Rec and Park’s Volunteer Services team welcomed the Warriors forward Harrison Barnes, Warriors Chief Marketing Officer Chip Bowers, Esurance President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Tolman and Esurance Chief Marketing Officer Alan Gellman, along with Warriors fans and staff from Esurance and the Warriors and thanked them for their day of volunteer service.
“It is not everyday that we have a Golden State Warriors player joining us for volunteer services, but we definitely have volunteers’ help everyday in our parks” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager. “We are very thankful for the Golden State Warriors and all our volunteers for their contribution to our parks.”
“Coming out to participate in our WE G.I.V.E. program with Esurance alongside our staff, season ticket holders and SF Rec and Park was a great experience,” said Warriors Forward Harrison Barnes. “Our fans and partners are the best in the NBA and thanks to them we were able to give back to our community and help beautify Golden Gate Park and protect Warriors Ground.”
The volunteer groups beautified around Golden Gate Park, including painting the park’s benches, removing invasive plants, and cleaning up children’s play areas.
This WE G.I.V.E. volunteer event at Golden Gate Park is part of the Warriors and Esurance’s WE G.I.V.E. volunteer platform, where Warriors players and front office staff, along with Warriors season ticket holders, Esurance employees and additional fans team up to Give, Inspire, Volunteer and Educate through a variety of events this season to support organizations whose mission is to give back to the Bay Area community.
