Employee Charitable Projects
100 Acts of Kindness
To further honor our firm’s 100-year legacy, Hood & Strong staff have initiated a year-long “100 Acts of Kindness” program, which will coordinate philanthropic activities throughout the year to help the underserved. We kicked off this initiative in January with a food drive for the San Francisco Food Bank and are continuing with other acts of kindness throughout the year.
March For Babies
Hood & Strong is honored to support the March of Dimes and their mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The firm has participated in the March of Dimes annual March for Babies fundraiser for the past 15 years, raising more than $250,000 for this great cause.
San Francisco Food Bank
Hood & Strong employees regularly volunteer at the San Francisco Food Bank, packing grocery boxes that are distributed to seniors and other citizens in need. The San Francisco Food Bank relies on approximately 4,000 volunteers a month– the equivalent of 70 full-time employees that they would have to hire without the support of volunteers. To learn more about the San Francisco Food Bank and volunteer opportunities, visit www.sfmfoodbank.org.
Hood & Strong is proud to support the Princess Project, which seeks and receives thousands of beautiful new or nearly-new dresses and accessories in excellent condition from individual donors and corporate partners. Free prom dresses and accessories are provided to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. Since the Princess Project began in February 2002, more than 20,000 teens have received prom dresses and accessories. Learn more about the Princess Project.
Hood & Strong USF Scholarship
Each year, Hood & Strong provides funding for the Robert A. Mellin Endowed Scholarship at the University of San Francisco. We honor Robert Mellin, a former Managing Partner at Hood & Strong, with this scholarship given annually to the top accounting student at the USF School of Management.
