Warriors Green Mob Service Day, Presented by Esurance
April 9, 2013
As part of NBA Green Week, the Warriors and Esurance teamed up to form the Green Mob.
Forty members of the Warriors and Esurance staff volunteered to help beautify the Bayview Park in San Francisco in support of the San Francisco Recreation & Parks department.
The staff members were joined by Warriors players Harrison Barnes and Kent Bazemore, Warriors President & COO Rick Welts, Esurance President & CEO Gary Tolman, San Francisco Rec & Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services Director Kriztina Palone, who all came out to the park to lend a helping hand.
Warrior Girls Amira and Danielle were also there to show their support.
SF Rec & Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg spoke to the group about the importance of volunteers and how excited he was to host the Warriors and Esurance.
Kriztina Palone from the Mayor’s Office presented the Warriors and Esurance with a Certificate of Honor for their commitment to the San Francisco community and service at Bayview Park.
The group spent hours planting trees…
… cleaning up litter and trash…
… as well as removing unhealthy and overgrown shrubs to help support safety/sight line for the police officers, park staff and community members that use the park.
When all was said and done, the Warriors and Esurance removed 10 large garbage bags of trash and a 6 foot tall ¼ mile long overgrown hedge to provide a safe sight line to the park and ball field.
The removal of the brush not only addressed safety concerns but will also allow the San Francisco Rec & Parks department to create a walking path around the perimeter of the park.
All of the groups’ hard work totaled more than 135 hours of service. The San Francisco Rec & Parks department greatly appreciated the help, as they are a department of seven that have to care for over 150 acres of park land.
This is the third Green Mob event of the season where the Warriors and Esurance have partnered to support the Warriors’ ongoing support of the local community and the environment.
“Esurance has been a sponsor of the Golden State Warriors since 2008 and has a history of supporting green initiatives that benefit the Bay Area community,” said Esurance President and CEO, Gary Tolman. “Teaming up with the Warriors has been a great way to promote and generate awareness about environmental issues in our community. From encouraging the use of public transportation and carpooling to beautification projects at local schools and parks, we strive to help make a difference in local communities in which our customers and associates live and work.”
A very special thank you to Esurance, SF Rec & Parks department, and the city of San Francisco.
