COMMUNITY ALLIANCE PROGRAM
The Vapor Room Cooperative would like to thank all of our neighbors, supporters, member- patients and non- members alike, for their continued support throughout the years. In addition to being a positive influence in our member’s lives, we wish to be a positive influence in our local community. Over the years, the Vapor Room Cooperative has significantly developed its community outreach efforts through our constantly evolving Community Alliance Program. This program’s purpose is to create and nurture relationships with neighborhood and citywide organizations and programs. By having worked with these organizations through volunteer services and donations we have been helpful in implementing positive solutions to the Lower Haight’s many unique issues. In addition to making regular donations to Alliance members throughout the year, we collaborate with them on general outreach efforts by promoting their events, recruiting volunteers and sharing resources. All funds beyond the required amount for proper operation of the Vapor Room Cooperative are either donated to local charities or reinvested in providing a fuller experience for our members. We have given generous donations on a regular basis to local HIV/AIDS & Cancer hospices, San Francisco Food Bank, the San Francisco Police Department Officers Association, the San Francisco Police Department Literacy Outreach Program, the San Francisco Fire Department Association and the Lower Haight Merchants and Neighbors Association. In addition to monetary donations, we have also donated art supplies to local children’s groups, food to the local food bank, and therapeutic cannabis to hospices for non-ambulatory and terminally ill patients. We are continually expanding our charitable donation program and are always looking for new local programs to support. Please take a moment to learn more about the charities, groups and resource centers that we feel are important to our members, neighbors and over all San Francisco Community.
