Since the shelter in place order was announced by the Mayor, the ASNA Board has been working on ways to support our community through this challenging time. In compliance with the order issued by the San Francisco Dept. of Public Health and CDC, please be sure to maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and people you encounter when leaving your home. We’ve compiled informative resources, as well as some creative and uplifting neighborhood actions, to remind you that we will all get through this, together.
Support our Divisadero Merchants! Many of our Divisadero merchants are still open for business and doing a fantastic job of providing services to the neighborhood during this difficult time. If you have the ability, please try to continue to support our merchants in the upcoming weeks and beyond. Many of them are experiencing extraordinary hardship and it is up to all of us to help keep them afloat through this crisis.

The covered storefronts on Divis were looking a bit drab, so a team of ASNA board members took physically distant action. They contacted the building’s owner and a local high school artist, to have inspiring messages painted on the boarded up windows of Tsunami restaurant at Fulton & Divisadero. If you would like to contribute to future neighborhood relief efforts, you can make a PayPal donation below.
Thank you, Neighbors!
Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy, and help lift up your neighbors during this challenging time. Thank you!
