BBBSBA public service announcements (PSA’s) were heard all month on all Clear Channel Radio stations. Univision, the leading Spanish news station in the Bay Area, also aired video PSA ‘s encouraging the Latino Community to volunteer with our agency.  Our message was also seen all over Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube social media channels.

Thank you for helping BBBSBA reach its goal!
