I Left My Heart In San Francisco...

Posted by Jessica on January 1, 2015 at 2:30 AM

Today wraps up an amazing trip to San Francisco!!

Yesterday I had the great honor to donate 20 bags of We Care Bears to the San Francisco Fire Department. Chief Joanne Hayes-White and everyone in the department was so nice to me.


After I took the bags to them they gave me a giant bag of Ghirardelli chocolate AND had arranged for ice cream at Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop....it is so delicious. The manager, Chris, use to live in San Diego!! We talked for a while and he had another giant bag of all kinds of chocolate for me....how did they know I was a chocaholic?


Then it was on to take a ride on the fire boat....that was AMAZING! The thing was it was a very cold and windy day and the water was so choppy but the firemen were great and the views of the city from the boat were amazing. That fire boat we were on, the Phoenix, singlehandedly saved the Marina District after the earthquake in 1989. The Phoenix is the departments smallest boat - small but mighty...just like me!!




 


TODAY I was lucky enough to be able to donate 50 bags of We Care Bears to the San Francisco Police Department.


What a fantastic way to be able to end the new year. I got the meet Chief Suhr and Deputy Chief Lyn Tomioka. Officer Padmore was amazingly gracious. He took us all on a tour of the Hall of Justice, I think that is such a great name!! and gave all kinds of SFPD stuff. I can't wait to wear my new jersey...the police department made sure to tell me that they beat the fire department in their football game :-)



 

Thank you to everyone at both SFPD and SFFD....I really felt so loved and I can't wait to get the chance to come back to visit you all and your city again.

 

All in all it was a remarkable way to end 2014 on a high note and I just can't wait to see what 2015 brings.

 

If you know a fire department or police department that would like bags of We Care Bears for their vehicles please let me know!!!
