"Rebuilding Together" 4/28/01

There is a non-profit organization called Rebuilding Together. Once a year in April companies can announce teams which want to help for a day to do some community work. This year my colleague Mark Finnern collected about 35 people from SAP Labs, SAP Markets, and SAP America. SAP sponsored us with food. We met in the morning at "Little Hollywood Park" in South San Francisco. Two people from the park administration were there to guide us in repainting benches, sifting the sandbox sand, and weeding a hill and replanting it. It was a lot of fun! I can't wait to go there in half a year and check what the hill looks like after a summer of water and sun.
