Wilhelm joined One Brick in 2005. Since then he has been an amazing volunteer not just for One Brick but many other organizations as evidenced by his lanyard full of presidential service awards and the better than 50% chance if you come volunteer at any SF event you will run into his smile. Wilhelm always makes volunteering more fun with his dedication to making the event an awesome experience for everyone. With all his various volunteer adventures Wilhelm has the inside scoop on pretty much anything non-profit or volunteer related in San Francisco or the East Bay. Thanks Wilhelm!

Other notable stars!

BensonL

Benson Limketkai - Webguru, Event Manager Seattle Chapter
Benson joined One Brick in 2009. Along with Clive & Jordan he's one of the webguru's spending endless hours on our website.  He's also an active member of the Seattle chapter totaling over 200 events over the years.

Elaine Eng - Founding Manager
Starting back in 2002, for many, many years, Elaine labored tirelessly behind the scenes managing the calendar for the entirety of the Bay Area, as One Brick was getting going.  She would coordinate via email and phone with every nonprofit Tom, Dick, and Harry, and get as many as 80 events a month on the calendar, ensure those events were fully staffed, while trying to take into account which events which Event Manager wanted to manage, etc., etc.  She did this thankless task for YEARS - like Sisyphus.  Not to mention the 250+ events she volunteered at...Without Elaine, we couldn’t have had a One Brick!

Jordan Laughlin - Website Architect 
Jordan joined One Brick in 2011. Along with Clive & Benson he's one of the webguru's spending countless hours in creating our new website.  
Kate Martin - Board Member, CD Silicon Valley Chapter
Volunteering in SF Bay Area since 2009 (250+ events), Kate was a founding member of both the Silicon Valley & One Brick Builds chapters. After serving various roles in local/Builds chapters and organising many volunteer trips to New Orleans Kate assumed the role of Chapter Director of the One Brick Silicon Valley chapter in May 2018.  
 

Melissa Ganley - Former Exec Director & Boston Chapter Director

Melissa has a passion for community service! She began volunteering with the One Brick Boston in 2011 and helped grow it into the robust Chapter it is today while serving as Chapter Director. Following that, Melissa took on the task of Executive Director of One Brick, a position she held until 2018. Not only that be she has attended and managed several volunteer trips to New Orleans, which align with her love of craft beer and brass music! We are so grateful to Melissa for everything she has done for One Brick both locally and nationally over the years.   

 

 

In Memoriam

Kristina Vilardi
Kristina helped get One Brick off the ground by serving informally as our legal counsel.  In fact, it was due to Kristina’s direction and advice that ultimately resulted in One Brick incorporating as a 501(c)(3) and becoming the organization it is today.  Kristina passed away several years ago from a heart condition, but is in our thoughts and prayers.  

 

 

Gail Hicks 
Gail joined One Brick in 2012 and was an integral part of the Silicon Valley Chapter, not only managing events, but spending countless hours setting up Events, Socials and Fundraisers behind scenes.  After battling hard for many months Gail passed away on Nov 3rd 2017 - she will be sadly missed.
