Thank you to the Kill the Spill coordinators and all the volunteers who’ve helped cleaned off our beaches and rallied to ensure we got our officials’ attention. It’s great to see that Kill the Spill is now working in tandem with the EPA, SF Dept of Emergency Management, the National Park Service, and others. We still need everyone’s help so Kill the Spill can let officials know where to deploy more resources.
Stay tuned for our volunteer appreciation party Wednesday Dec 5th, at Sports Basement Potrero Hill, 6pm-10pm.
Also, a BIG THANK-YOU goes to many organizations below who made all our efforts go smoothly over the last 13+ days, especially on our Sunday rally, November 12, 2007 (Day 5).
We are grateful for the support and outpouring of help. We know we’ve likely missed people, so please contact us to help update this list.
