Together, we can create the future of public safety in Alameda County.
Each newsletter we send out has a “By the Numbers” section highlighting the impact of the efforts of our team members on the health and safety of our community. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown, we wanted to help everyone visualize in a more concrete and personal way what that impact really means.
DSAL’s Food and Wellness Efforts
March 16, 2020 to March 12, 2021
Prepared Meals Delivered to Seniors & Families by 30 vendors:
If each food container is about 4” tall, that would make a stack over 86 times the height of the Bay Bridge!
Bags of Groceries Delivered:
That amount is equal to putting a bag of groceries in every seat of the Oakland Arena —seven times!
Pounds of food recovered & delivered:
We recovered enough food to equal the weight of 18 humpback whales! That is all food that would have gone to waste and instead went to our neighbors in need.
Well-being check-ins made by DSAL coaches:
Reentry Internship and Driver Hours:
That’s enough hours to drive to Times Square and back over 78 times!
Fitness is medicine Online training sessions:
Attended in-person socially-distanced soccer & dance:
Children at the Canchitas Learning Hub:
