>> good morning, everyone. my name is ken mcneiley and president of at & t california. i want to welcome you today and thank you all for being here and spending some of your morning with us. we are happy to be celebrating the most incredible work by san francisco's finest non-profit organizations and we are happy to have our mayor ed lee to join us in this announcement. [ applause ] >>mayor edwin m. lee: all right. thank you, ken for being here and certainly for at & t and for your team. i just want to recognize mark blake man and jason chan and cammy blackstone. i hope, ken, that you have enjoyed all the different hair styles that jason has been having. cammy is
1:16 pm
going to add to that as well. good morning everybody. this is a great time. another wonderful moment. i know a couple months ago ken and i shared the stage at palace of fine arts when we were inaugurating the celebration of our art history. it's helpful to think of at & t not just today in what they are doing but 100 years ago when they were making that first trans-atlantic hall with linking with our city's history has been wonderful. fast forward, 100 years later, at & t is doing it again. i know the board of supervisors and my office just announced a pretty big budget but a budget that continues to be in the works because whatever revenues the city can do to help our
1:17 pm
communities, the communities and non-profits that serve directly our communities are also saying they need more help. this is a time when all of us and particularly our business leaders like at & t can recognize the vital role that keeps san francisco accessible, keeps it vibrant and literally helps continue making at it the world class city that it is because the world class city has to have a heart. i know that at & t has made these grants. i have eight wonderful community organizations that represent the service that they do the most vulnerable of our residents. they help protect the environment and culture of our city. i'm proud that our
1:18 pm
private partners recognize the innovative and hard work they do and what they do in the city by supporting our people families, seniors and youth. today i'm pleased to announce a significant campaign that at & t is sponsored. it's called the sf summer of giving. it's an 8-week initiative and i can slip the tongue and say the summer of love because ken and i know that love is about giving. but the official time is sf summer of giving and it's an eight week8-week program that is going to help san francisco. each of these awards will be a minimum of $20,000 and more to non-profit organizations. we are going to announce each one once a week
1:19 pm
so each organization gets their week where they can celebrate. the total is over a quarter of a million of dollars of love that we are sharing through at & t's generosity. and you know, these grants are to agencies that are doing great work in our city. at a time even when we are probably considered the richest of the most unaffordable city in the country maybe next to new york. affordability, accessibility are everybody's concern. and certain is one of my top concerns. so, i want to remember that the organizations that help us deliver our services is not all government. it could be community based agencies in many ways are more culturally competent when they are working with our immigrants in particular, working on the ground in the community. so by
1:20 pm
design, as non-profits they invest everything they have to the betterment of our communities. so we wanted to acknowledge them through these grants and through this fantastic campaign that we are lucky to have. specifically today, you have organizations like the asian pacific american community center in the visitation valley. somewhat isolated community admittedly because while we try to reach all communities in san francisco we have isolated poverty areas of our city. well, a pac has been there from the start and they are trying really hard to provide culturally competent services to moderate income to immigrant families to allow them to be more successful. so i want to thank at & t for stepping up. this is the first of a total of eight. eight is a lucky number,
1:21 pm
ken. and it's also one that i believe will set yet again another great example in this city that businesses and you are going to hear, after we announce these and i know at & t will be thanked by the city because others will follow their lead as well and they will be making announcements that will be shared by other community based non-profits that need our help. i look forward to following this campaign on twitter and i know we are getting the details about how you can find out all of those details, ken, thank you for this generosity of at & t and also with the great partners with all of our non-profits. [ applause ] >> thank you very much, mr. mayor. we are very excited to kickoff this campaign and this is the
1:22 pm
first sf summer of giving that we've done and we have constructed it in a way that each non-profit organization gets it's time in the spotlight. over the next 8 weeks we will go to the organizations and thank them for their work and we will spotlight each organization on twitter to get the word out about what they are doing to improve the lives of san franciscans. i hope you follow us on # sf summer of giving and see how they are celebrating the contribution to san francisco. i'm about to announce the very first award to the asian community pacific
