Updates: We Got a Grant!

We at Streets Alive! are excited to announce that the Open Circle Foundation has awarded us a grant of $8,000 to do more utility boxes! With such generous funding, we plan on creating and supporting more partnerships between local businesses and youth organizations so that together, they can design beautiful and meaningful boxes.

One such partnership that already exists is Peet's Coffee & Tea+ PG&E Teen Center+ Habitot. Peet's has agreed to sponsor two utility boxes outside of their Downtown Berkeley location and team up with the two youth organizations to come up with designs. The larger box will be allocated to the older group of kids, while the smaller box will represent the younger crowd. Such partnerships are what really make the 60 Boxes Project exciting and rewarding and we hope to establish even more now!

Thanks Open Circle Foundation!
