- Develop and design a campaign to raise awareness of the agency and services to the LGBT community to provide support and crisis intervention
- Design and create a poster, pamphlet, small card, print ads for LGBT publications, and potentially public space advertising
- In addition to agency awareness, the campaign would be advertising a series of drop-in suicide prevention trainings and LGBT grief groups for survivors
Time Frame: All assets must be in the community by June 2011.
San Francisco Suicide Prevention Agency Overview:
San Francisco Suicide Prevention is the oldest community-based telephone crisis center in the United States. The organization helps thousands of people through personal crises each year. The agency’s eight mental health programs assist people in crisis or in need of emotional support. While the agency operates the local 24-hour Suicide Prevention hotline, it also operates other mental health programs that are not crisis oriented. The agency responds to 80,000 client contacts annually.
GRGR/West and REAL Bad Overview:
Grass Roots Gay Rights West (GRGR/West) is committed to raising and distributing funds to grassroots organizations that strengthen the diverse populations that make up San Francisco’s LGBT community. They support organizations that create local impact, sustainable results and/or measurable change, especially in the areas of civil rights, community development, social services, HIV/AIDS and other health-related issues.
One major way to help San Francisco Suicide Prevention is to take a look at our wish list, and acquire any of these items for the agency, either by approaching a store, just buying it yourself, or being creative. For more details, call David Paisley at 415/984-1900 x106 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Volunteer Food:
Volunteers are here 24/7, they are busy and they are hungry! One time or ongoing donations of food really helps.
- Volunteer Drinks:
Same as food, donations of soft drinks, ground coffee, tea, or any nonperishable drinks are greatly appreciated.
- Office Supplies:
The more we can get donated, the less money we need to spend for office supplies. Copy paper is especially needed.
- Newer Mac Computers:
We operate off “older” Macs here at the agency, and being able to acquire anything more powerful helps. To be specific, we are looking for at least Mac Mini OX 10.4 or better operating systems.
- Flat Screen Television:
Something of reasonable size that can be easily moved for volunteer training.
- PowerPoint Projector:
For our youth program to take to schools during presentations.
- Small Carpet Cleaner:
Volunteers up all night taking calls = coffee stains on the carpet. We could use a small spot remover carpet cleaner.
- Stylish Furniture:
We are in the process of setting up a volunteer lounge. Think IKEA; we are looking for stylish furniture.
- Trade Show Display:
Something small and easy to carry on MUNI as we go to health fairs and schools.
- Silent Auction Gifts:
We have a number of events throughout the year with silent auctions. Your gifts of retail items can be very helpful to raise funds.
