Video: Clif Bar Donates a Day to the Alameda Point Collaborative
Since 2001, the people here at Clif Bar & Company have been collectively donating at least 2,080 hours each year (and usually, much more) to our favorite causes, in what we call Project 2080. Why 2,080? That’s how many hours one full-time employee works in a year.

A couple times a year, we pool everyone together and shut Clif HQ down for an entire day of service to a single organization. Last month that organization was the Alameda Point Collaborative, that's working to end homelessness by providing housing and services to create communities where formerly homeless families and individuals can flourish. APC operates a community garden, bike shop, commercial plant nursery, health center and community center.

So what do you get with almost 200 employees pitching in for a day of manual labor? Check out the video to see how it all went down!

You can help, too! If you're San Francisco Bay area-based, you can volunteer, contribute or donate your time. Simply head on over to the APC's website for details.
