Help Us Paint the Depot! Donate on

If you’ve been to see us, you may have noticed that our Depot could use a face lift. Being in a public park in a suburban setting, we see our share of graffiti, unfortunately, and do our best to clean it up. Of course, that takes a toll on our paint. As does the normal seasons of wind, rain, and sun. Our depot is a registered historic landmark in San Leandro, moved to it’s current location in the late 1980s, so it hasn’t been painted in nearly 30 years!

As well, with 116-year-old paint, the paint is lead based, so we need to have professional lead abatement done as well as a fresh paint job. You can imagine that this takes quite a bit of money.

We are a 501(C)(3) Non-Profit, and even with some discounts being extended to us, we have received estimates in the $19,000 range to take care of this. We have created a campaign to help us raise funds to pay for this service, and have cut our operating budget as well to help fund this initiative. Please help us to maintain the building and keep the history of the railroad alive in San Leandro! Any donation you can give is greatly appreciated, as is any time you can share our campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google Plus, or just via email with your family and friends!

Thank you for all of your support!
