VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT: KEN O'BRIEN

Updated: Mar 25

We wouldn't be able to do this work without you!



Ken has been a big hero for Compass during the pandemic. When we needed someone to deliver meals to Compass Family Shelter, he said “yes!” That may not sound that complicated, but it’s a big job. Every Thursday and Friday Ken picks up delicious, donated meals from Nybill catering in Oakland and drives them over the bridge to our shelter in the Tenderloin and hand delivers inside to the front desk - and then drives back to his home in Oakland. That’s a lot to ask in a volunteer and he’s done this week after week with dedication.


Ken has a truck. Anyone with a truck knows you get asked to haul things for friends. And Ken has done just that for Compass in addition to the meal deliveries twice a week. We are all very grateful for Ken and his very humble volunteer service to help Compass staff and families.


Thank you Ken for your many hours of volunteering and helping Compass families during this difficult time!
