NEED LEGAL COUNSEL FOR PROTECTION OF THE HOMELESS/NEEDY FROM THE Pandemic Scammers- Social Service Providers/Agencies- POVERTY PIMPS – “Scamdemers“

We are recommending an Investigation and Forensic Audit of the “Scamdemers“

We, the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF) are looking for legal Counsel to provide legal services to Seniors, mentally compromised, the housing marginalized/Homeless, disabled, medically challenged, the indigent, immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ-gender, religious minorities, ethnic minorities, people of color, youth that are aged out of foster care/adoption, emancipated youth, minorities of ALL persuasions, whom have been set up to have their housing denied and, in some cases, put back on the street for no reason other than we have caught their “Scamdemic service providers” in multiple, extremely racist and bigoted instances of discrimination and persecution in the processing of housing applications and even having government law enforcement agencies involved as a silent third-party in doing so! These Scamdemic agencies are raking in multi-million dollars a year and providing substandard services, with improperly and untrained employees that is costing ALL PARTIES millions in WASTE as well! The Scamdemers have tried to abuse many of them so badly that they would just leave the programs and go back to the streets, freeway underpasses, etc.!

We sought out our partners at the National Lawyers Guild- San Francisco Bay Area (NLG-SFBA), but there was no one qualified that responded.

The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF), is a 65 year old, 501C3 non-profit, public services organization based on GIVING AND SHARING, is non-denominational, Multi-Cultural, 100% volunteer financed and operated relief organization that provides FREE charitable assistance to the general public with food, medicine, clothing, educational and employment opportunities, mental and physical health referrals, legal aid, shelter and other necessities to individuals, children, families, and organizations who lack these essentials for any reason. We provide private school and college admissions educational opportunities; assists with referrals for job training and placement; rental assistance; social services assistance; homelessness assistance; mental and physical health assistance; medical assistance and legal aid assistance referrals FREE for ANYONE whom has the need.

 AMWF is especially concerned about the most vulnerable people in the community and extends these various services and programs to the economically, mentally, and physically challenged; the poor and homeless; the undereducated and undeserved; people living with symptomatic HIV and AIDS; substance abuse; seniors 55 years and older; prenatal women; at risk youth; shut-in and homebound people living with serious illness; people with compromised immune systems, low-wage workers, and undocumented people. We have multiple efforts to support organizations and communities responding to the impact of COVID-19 in racial bias, worker protection, homelessness, renter protection, housing insecurity, and food security and the needs of low-income communities, particularly the impacts for communities of color, related to COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has driven unprecedented surges in demand for food assistance, AMWF’s food network brings together different groups, organizations, and agencies that work with the poor and needy has always had one of the best ever business models combines our food procurement with our established innovative food redistribution hub, serves a network for other hunger-relief organizations to provide more effective hunger-relief efforts in the Bay Area.

We are committed to greater racial and economic equity in the Bay Area and want to ensure that people of color and low-income people are (1) food, basic needs and economically secure, (2) remain in their rooted neighborhood communities, and (3) vigorously engage in social, civic, and just legal life and part of the inclusive Democracy!

We provide FREE groceries, clothing, shoes, hygiene kits, sleeping bags, blankets, medicine, and hot chef’s prepared gourmet meals to the homeless and homeless encampments and habitations of ALL kinds, from the streets to parks, from trees and bushes to alleys, from corners to ditches, from hand built shanties to tents under freeway overpasses!

We are contacting you today in hopes that you may be able to assist us with the housing marginalized individuals and families that are subjected to the “selective persecution” that goes along with the hate induced racism, bigotry, persecution, bias, prejudice and sheer terror that those in charge of the multi-million dollar “house the homeless Scamdemic” so willingly and viciously FORCE upon the helpless!

The housing marginalized/homeless “LIVE- (if I can refer to it as living)” daily with numerous Federal and State sponsored crimes that violate EVERY CIVIL RIGHTS ACT, and the Federal and California State CONSTITUTIONS getting the worst treatment you could imagine, that’s EXTREMELY inhumane because they feel entitled to invoke racism, bigotry, harassment, and persecution upon them, as being homeless, no one cares, no one is going to protect them and it’s escalating with the lies, deception, and fraud that now is common place in ALL their interactions as these “Scamdemers” are clearly acting in concert with each other!
They, the poverty pimp “Scamdemers”, can manipulate the system anyway they chose since no one is really watching to hold them accountable, it’s largely unregulated, and the clients they are supposed to serve are unknown- invisible to society as people, but exist only as human blight and vermin in their respective privileged neighborhoods destined to be extracted- BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
The housing marginalized/homeless are subjected to these unbridled attacks because the service agencies are “the only game in town”! It’s their game, their ball, their court, they own the league and operate it unencumbered and un-policed! It’s truly the Wild, Wild West, and they have ALL the guns and ammunition!

These “Scamdemers” operate in conjunction with and in many capacities Executives, Directors, Housing Commissions, Housing Authorities in the commission of numerous Federal and State crimes that violate EVERY CIVIL RIGHTS ACT, the CONSTITUTION AND ALL BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS!

To quote just TWO instances: 

1) “Your ILLEGAL, INHUMAN tactics including the HATE, multiple threats, sheer TERROR, intimidation, and harassment forced on them with the intent to inflict the maximum pain and suffering on them, while you engaged in CRIMINAL FRAUD AND CONCEALMENT AS YOU HAD THE X DOCUMENT AND WAS AWARE OF IT’S CONTENTS ALL THE TIME! To enact your strategy, you needed them to produce it to conceal the fact that you already had it! These are Federal and State crimes of Hate, and violations of EVERY CIVIL RIGHTS ACT and the CONSTITUTION!”

2) “your using this weaponized process to further your agenda of persecution while committing Hate Crimes, Terror, Civil Conspiracy, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, Hate Induced Bigotry, Vindictive Retaliation, Oppression, Harassment, Racism, Bias, Prejudice, Unfairness, Persecution, AND GRAND CORRUPTION!”

There have been several attempts with law enforcement to “frame” their clients for fraud the Scamdemers were committing in their clients name with the intent to entrapment them in the charge! It has backfired many times, BUT IS STILL ACTIVE!

The Scamdemers even tried to abuse the law by making excessive, unrelated DEMANDS for legally protected- private and personal unrelated information that they had NO RIGHT to in furtherance of their agenda. Two examples: 

1) If there are any other legal requirements for any other documents, as we said before, PLEASE PROVIDE THE DOCUMENTED LEGAL REFERENCE FOR IT AS IT WOULD ALSO INCLUDE WHAT DOCUMENTS SATISFY THAT REQUIREMENT. The scamdemers has REPEATEDLY failed and refused to do so on ALL previous requests for the substantiation of the request (demand). This appears to be another ruse to provoke and aggrieve them in your entrapment strategy. 

2) “We all have agreed that your and others at XXX admitted continuing collective and coordinated efforts to ensure X’s  frustration, and dissatisfaction has been duly noted, as we are well experienced in recognizing and negating these “Target, Engagement, Harassment, Provocation, Litigation” tactics as a part of the larger “Entrapment” strategy and the reference to consult your “others” in this matter as well.” 

The Scamdemers admissions evenbrings into play their use of “others” and their roles in this continuing saga that should be about their clients housing and well being- NOT an “Entrapment”.
Their use of “others” compromises their “cover” and implies that they and/or the “others” are or maybe under and working with a government Special Services Division, with or as confidential informants, snitches, government operatives, are authorized to engage in illegal activity and acts that would be unlawful if performed by an actual FBI agent such as entrapment by “participating in an act that constitutes an obstruction of justice (e.g. perjury, witness tampering, witness intimidation, entrapment, or the fabrication, alteration, or destruction of evidence),” or to “initiate a plan or strategy to commit a federal, state, or local offense,” they provide a number of conditions under which “an inducement to an individual to engage in crime is authorized.”
These confidential informants, snitches, government operatives can provide a number of conditions under which “an inducement to an individual to engage in crime is authorized.” This could apply to any or all of the actions taken in and of their services as a “quasi- governmental” agency acting in their clients name and stead. 

    The Scamdemers constant hostility, harassment, oppressive, onerous criminal corruption and persecution to the detriment of those most in need with their adversarial actions appears to be more a continuing ruse to provoke them with their racial and religious biases and aggrieve them in their entrapment strategy.

     The Scamdemers are ALL legal parties as Governmental and Quasi-governmental employees, agents, contractors, entities, associates, members, and contractors of their companies, the U. S. Federal Government, State of California, County, and cities, among others, have engaged in unethical and criminal means, instigated and encouraged said acts, which gives rise to fraudulent, corruption as the Scamdemers conspired, consorted, colluded, conceived, employed and enacted the criminal, tactical, hate crime inspired policy of TARGETED HATE CRIME, Terror, Civil Conspiracy, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, Hate Induced Bigotry, Vindictive Retaliation, Oppression, Harassment, Racism, Discrimination, Bias, Prejudice, Unfairness, Persecution, AND GRAND CORRUPTION, victimization, inciting acrimony, animus, in the continued persecution with calumny deceit and the attempted entrapment of them as the continuing “TARGET”.

    ALL the Scamdemers DOCUMENTED actions alleged include violations of the First, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, Unruh and Ralph Civil Rights Acts, and the Bane Acts, Equal Protection under 42 U.S.C. ß 1983, California Constitution, Article VI, § 4 1/2; California Code of Civil Procedure §§ 355, 356, 473, 475, 3523, and 3528, and for Harassment, Censorship, Fraud, Negligence, Misrepresentation, Abuse of Process, Breach of Contract, Breach of the Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty, Breach of Contract/Common Law Warranty, Deceptive Trade Practices, Intentional Misrepresentation, Negligent Misrepresentation, Fraud by Concealment, California’s Unfair Competition Law, Cal Bus & Prof Code §§ 17200 et seq, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Discrimination in Violation of the Unruh Act, Nuisance, Abuse of Process, Fraud by Concealment, Violation of California False Advertising Law, Violation of California Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA), Breach of Implied Warranty, Deceit-(California Civil Code § 1710), Unfair and Deceptive Business Practices, Unconscionability (UDAP), Elder Abuse.
Given the FRAUD, ADMITTED LIES AND DECEPTION, THEFT, FABRICATION OF DOCUMENTS, ETC., this could easily be “a plan or strategy to commit a federal, state, or local offense” in the “entrapped” clients name, under the guise of “an inducement to an individual to engage in crime is authorized.” 

Here again they are admitting their entrapment strategy and their involving unknown “third parties” that are directing their actions in this admitted attempt at fraud.
Can you PLEASE give them some guidance and representation, or perhaps direct us to someone that can if you can’t help them? We will await your communication.

Sincerely,

A. J.

*****
1unknownname Dr. Kenya Numan and her organization “Stepping Together” as well as Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim and “The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation” were recently honored in Miami, Florida and Port Au Prince, Haiti in July 2011 for the Relief Missions that they have sent to Haiti since the earthquake. The incomparable Dr. Numan has served in the Gulf War and was a top level surgeon on the front line addressing the needs on the U.S. soldiers where word of her superior talents spread throughout the region such that even the opposition sought her out when they were detained. She has served the needs of many around the world in Africa, South and Central America, and here in the U. S.
A very special “Thanks” to all that have supported our efforts over the years!
On August 25, 2010 Abdul-Jalil received the letter shown below of “Thanks” from Arch Bishop Joel Jeune of Grace Village in Haiti for the Relief Mission they received from the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation with Stepping Together on behalf of The World Conference of Mayors (WCM- 18,000 Political Leaders and Dignitaries from around the world) and The National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM). This is a tangible reality of SUCCESS in Haiti for ALL the members of the organizations world-wide rather than the many idle cocktail party rants and raves of projects that exist without any substance behind them. THEY DID IT! ALL the members of the World Conference of Mayors can celebrate their success and acknowledge their contribution.
They are now moving forward in a meaningful way to secure financial, subsistence, construction and medical aid and support for the next mission which will take place as soon as we can unite to raise the necessary items just mentioned. They can tap into the resources of the USAIDS and the National Medical Association to make great progress in securing bi-weekly missions to various needed areas around the World!

Beauford Delaney, Self-portrait, 1944. Photo: Estate of Beauford Delaney by permission of Derek L. Spratley, Esquire, Court Appointed Administrator; Courtesy of Michael Rosenfeld Gallery LLC, New York, NY Beauford Delaney was an American Harlem Renaissance painter known for his colorful Modernist compositions and distinctive approach to figuration. One of the most important African-American artists of the early 20th century, he often painted New York street scenes, lively scenes in jazz clubs, and portraits of prominent black figures like James Baldwin and W.E.B. Du Bois. Can Fire in the Park (1946) is one of his most iconic images, movingly capturing a common occurrence in Depression-era New York life. In addition to his representational work, Delaney also painted abstractly, noting that “the abstraction, ostensibly, is simply for me the penetration of something that is more profound in many ways than the rigidity of a form,” he explained. “A form if it breaths some, if it has some enigma to it, it is also the enigma that is the abstract, I would think.” Born on December 30, 1901 in Knoxville, TN as one of 10 children, he worked as sign-post painter as a teenager before going on to study in Boston at the Massachusetts Normal School, the South Boston School of Art, and the Copley Society. After school, he moved to Harlem in New York, where he befriended fellow artists like
 Alfred Stieglitz 
and
 Stuart Davis 
, who introduced him to the work of Modernists like
 Paul Cézanne 
,
 Pablo Picasso 
,
 Henri Matisse 
, and others. He moved to Europe in 1953 but was unable to find the same success he had previously had in New York, and gradually succumbed to alcoholism and mental health problems before his death on March 26, 1979 in Paris, France. Today, Delaney’s works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others. Fame, at least lasting fame — the your-work-goes-down-in-history kind, often accompanied by fat royalty payments — is a club that thinks of itself as an unbiased meritocracy, blind to everything but aesthetic innovation and popular success. It’s never quite worked out that way. When we look at the past, we still see generations of great talents who never quite got their due critically or commercially, many of them left relatively unsung. In this ongoing series, our critics pick artists they feel remain underappreciated and tell their stories and sing their praises. “He is amazing … this Beauford,” the novelist Henry Miller wrote of his lifelong friend Beauford Delaney in a 1945 essay that helped make the painter (whom Miller called a “black monarch” capable of making “the great white world … grow smaller”) a legendary attraction in Greenwich Village. So much so that people often gathered outside Delaney’s building at 181 Greene Street, where he lived and worked on the top floor — a walk-up lit only by a wood-burning potbellied stove. Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1901, Delaney migrated north to Boston in 1923 to study art, then moved to New York in November 1929, days after the onset of the Great Depression. That first day in New York, he slept on a Union Square bench, where someone stole his shoes. The next morning, he set out on foot, in newly bought shoes, to walk uptown to Harlem. When he reached Central Park, he stopped because of his severely blistered feet.

Things had never been tougher for American artists — let alone black ones. Art schools didn’t take black artists, and independent-studio classes banned black artists from figure-drawing sessions with white models. Undaunted, Delaney began drawing at a midtown dance studio. Somehow, his career took off almost overnight. Four months after he arrived in New York, an article appeared in the New York Telegraph about portraits Delaney had done of dancers and society figures.
Beauford Delaney

Artist (1901–79) Currently, MoMA has 
 “Composition 16” 
(1954–56) on view, a glowing bioluminescent yellow abstraction kitty-corner across the gallery from that other (until recently) missing modernist, Hilma af Klint. Both are in the company of de Kooning, Kline, and the other giants of mid-century painting. He met and charmed everyone. A list of his friends and acquaintances includes Stuart Davis — his closest painter compatriot — W.E.B. Du Bois (whose portrait he did), Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Jacob Lawrence, Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe (who did a portrait of him), Edward Steichen, Dorothy Norman, Anaïs Nin (who intimidated him), Jackson Pollock, and Jean Genet. His closest lifelong friend, however, was James Baldwin — who, while fleeing a strict father at 16, looked up Delaney in the Village. He later called the artist his “principal witness.” Delaney was a kind of surrogate nurturing father to the writer. Judging by his 1941 Dark Rapture (James Baldwin), a steamy nude portrait of the 16-year-old writer (as well as from subsequent Baldwin portraits over the decades), Delaney seems to have been in love with the lithe young man 22 years his junior. In October 1938, more than a decade before Pollock graced the same pages, Life magazine featured Delaney, picturing him beatifically smiling at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit. The caption read, “One of the most talented Negro painters.” Yet by the time he died in 1979, Delaney was alone, alcoholic, hallucinating, paranoid, and penniless in a Paris psychiatric hospital. What started as a great American story is now a near absence in the history of American art and an American Dream forestalled.

Spratley, Esquire, Court Appointed Administrator; Courtesy of Michael Rosenfeld Gallery LLC, New York, NY I love his work — especially his highly colored, optically intense, dense figurative paintings. He is almost an exact contemporary of, and the New York counterpart to, another great painter-portraitist, an artist who captured the power and magic of being poor stylishly, who lived on the margins but eventually came to be recognized as a visionary: Alice Neel. Delaney should be regarded as such as well. Through the 1930s and 1940s, while most American artists were either being fifth-rate Cubists, regionalists, or academics or desperately looking for ways around Picasso via Surrealism, Delaney made his own thoroughly contemporary way. In street and park scenes, still lifes, and portraits, he built upon the work of his good friend Davis, arriving at his own compact, flat fields of creamy, opaque color. His sense of visual, jigsawing geometry and strong, graphic distillation of structure is second only to Davis’s. Delaney’s work, however, has a much more human aura, atmosphere, and arc, almost to a mystical degree, seen only in Marsden Hartley. So why has Delaney been disappeared from collective memory? Partly, it is the racial bias of art history, which, among other things, meant that even while he was celebrated, it was less as a painterly equal to his contemporaries than as some kind of Negro seer or spiritual black Buddha. And in 1953, at the age of 51, Delaney left New York at perhaps the worst possible time. When other American artists, like Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham, were meeting and staying up late together (many of them open and uncloseted in their sexuality), Delaney was in Paris, where Baldwin had told him he could escape the long American night of racism. Baldwin was right, but Delaney struggled with French and became even more isolated. Twombly, Baldwin, and Miller returned often to New York, while Delaney never did. So he never got to rejoin the conversation. By the 1960s, Delaney’s abstraction was more connected to the French Art Informel — a primarily European response to Abstract Expressionism — and his paintings, influenced as they were by Monet’s Water Lilies and Turner’s glowing color, had few of the ironic, systemic, direct qualities of Pop Art and minimalism. At a distance, Delaney’s work seemed passé — an artist painting in a void, outside the canon. *This article appears in the January 6, 2020, issue of New York Magazine.

Portrait de Jean Genet, Beauford Delaney, 1972
Beauford Delaney was a painter, specializing in portraits. The Beauford Delaney collection consists of correspondence with colleagues, friends, gallery owners, and family members, as well as printed material documenting Delaney’s life in Paris. BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL INFORMATION Beauford Delaney was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, the third child of the Reverend Samuel Delaney and Delia Johnson Delaney. He attended the Knoxville Colored School and later studied art with an elderly Knoxville artist, who encouraged him to get further training. In 1924 Delaney went to Boston where he studied at the Massachusetts Normal School and the South Boston School of Art, and attended evening classes at the Copley Society. Delaney went to New York in 1929, settling at first in Harlem. He painted society women and professional dancers at Billy Pierce’s dancing school on West 46th Street, which gained him a reputation as a portraitist. His first one-man show, which consisted of five pastels and ten charcoal drawings, was at the 135th Street Branch Library of the New York Public Library in 1930. During the same year three of his portraits were included in a group show at the Whitney Studio Galleries, the predecessor of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Delaney also taught part-time at a progressive school in Greenwich Village. By the late 1940s Beauford Delaney had become a significant figure on the art scene. He illustrated “Unsung Americans Sung” (1944), a book of black musical tributes edited by W.C. Handy; he had a series of one-man shows in New York and Washington, D.C.; and he exhibited in group shows in a number of other cities. In 1945 he showed his first series of portraits of writers Henry Miller and James Baldwin, who would become his lifelong friends. In 1949 he began an association with the Roko Gallery in New York, where he exhibited annually until 1953. In 1953 Delaney left New York with the intention of settling in Rome, but a visit to Paris turned into a permanent stay. He had two studios in Paris, the first in the suburbs of Clamart and the other in the Rue Vincingetorix. In Paris Delaney exhibited in one-man and group shows at the Gallerie Paul Fachetti (1960), the Centre Culturel Americain (1961 and 1972), the Galerie Lambert (1964), the Musee Galliera (1967) and the Galerie Darthea Speyer (1973), among other places. The latter was a major showing of a selection of his work from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s and the catalog contained tributes by James Jones, James Baldwin, and Georgia O’Keefe. Delaney also exhibited in England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United States. The Paris years saw the creation of several masterpieces including portraits of singer Marian Anderson and writer Jean Genet. During this period he also created a series of interiors and studies in watercolor. After suffering two nervous breakdowns, Delaney was institutionalized, and died on March 26, 1979 at St. Ann’s Hospital in Paris. Delaney’s last one-man show in the United States was at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1978, inaugurating that museum’s Black Masters Series. Delaney’s work is in several private collections and in the collections of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Newark Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. SCOPE AND ARRANGEMENT The Beauford Delaney collection consists of correspondence with colleagues, friends, gallery owners, and family members, as well a printed material documenting Delaney’s life in Paris. Biographical information is provided in statements Delaney authored, articles prepared by others for catalogs, and his obituary. Among the many friends, colleagues and art collectors with whom he maintained an active correspondence is James Baldwin, who wrote an introduction to a catalog for an exhibition of Delaney’s art at Paris’ Galerie Lambert in 1964. Other correspondents include artists Charles Boggs, Al Hirschfeld, John Franklin Koenig, and Ellis Wilson, authors James Jones and Henry Miller (who was also a water colorist), art historian Richard A. Long, and his friend Lynn Stone. Additional artists, painters, writers, gallery owners and musicians who corresponded with Delaney include Lawrence Calcagno, Cab Calloway, Elaine DeKooning, Palmer C. Hayden, and Darthea Speyer. The letters discuss the style of painting of the correspondents, travels, purchase and exhibition of works, and personal matters. Numerous gallery announcements for art exhibits of Delaney’s and other artists’ works in Paris, New York and other cities demonstrate the extent of Delaney’s activities in the contemporary art world. The collection also contains a large number of picture postcards, some sent by friends, and gallery announcements. Family letters are from his brother and fellow artist, Joseph Delaney, and discuss his own work and impressions of Paris; his brother Emery (includes letters Delaney wrote to his brother, in addition to those received); and Delaney’s niece, Imogene.   Beauford Delaney

Our goal in the “Hand of Dignity” Program is to help low-income residents in Bay Area Counties improve their self-image and self-esteem by providing them with quality school or business apparel appropriate for attending school, job interviews and the professional workplace so they can obtain and education, secure employment and become economically self-sufficient. Many of the women in need of these services have nothing but the clothes on their back because they are escaping from abusive situations.
“Hand of Dignity” accepts new and gently used baby, children, teen youth, men’s and women’s clothing in excellent condition. We do not accept items in bad condition and they must not be noticeably worn, stained, torn, or imperfect. We are very selective as to what we will accept and ask/require that all donations to be in excellent condition, cleaned, pressed and on hangers.
We refresh the baby, children, teen youth clothing and give them new life with someone in need.
“Hand of Dignity” rescue, restore, and re-purpose the men’s and women’s business attire and accessories (suits, shirts, blouses, dresses, skirts, ties, scarfs, shoes, accessories, etc.) and provide them to individuals and programs which support people in transition or on welfare get jobs in the business world. Those “Qualified” clients in need can call to arrange a fitting of business attire and visit our ”showroom”, meet with a volunteer wardrobe adviser who helps select appropriate outfits for interviews and work for their new job.
Are there any clothes in your closet that you no longer wear? Put them to use by donating them to AMWF. The less fortunate are always in need of stylish, fresh, clean clothes. We would like to encourage you all to take the opportunity to do a little “closet purging” — and gather all those things that, quite honestly, will NEVER fit your body again.
Among the things that will find a new home with someone in need are some of your very nice, “classic” style, men’s and women’s suits, shirts, blouses, dresses, skirts, ties, scarfs, shoes, accessories, children and babies clothing, etc.

One of the first celebrity sightings dates to 1877 when famed Polish actress Helena Modjeska attended the third running of the Kentucky Derby. In the 1945 book, Down the Stretch, it was noted that Modjeska was impressed by the Derby but even more charmed by the mint julep to which she was introduced by Churchill Downs founder M. Lewis Clark following the race.Derby Party
Over the years, a stream of celebrities from film, music, sports, politics and wealth have been drawn to the Derby. On at least one occasion, a celebrity with a more notorious background was the talk of the Derby. The 15th renewal in 1889 brought bank and train robber Frank James to Louisville. The brother of famed outlaw Jesse James and a leader in their outlaw gang, Frank was on hand to watch Spokane take the victory over favored Proctor Knott.
Although most of the rich and famous that attend are guests of prominent ticket holders, the Derby has also attracted an impressive roster of celebrity racehorse owners. The group has found that the thrill of running their horses in the Kentucky Derby is as moving as any accomplishment in their professional careers.
Kim K
During the 1990s this group of celebrity owners grew to include: musician MC Hammer, 1992 Dance Floor, 3rd; composer Burt Bacharach, 1994 Soul of the Matter, 5th, and 1995 Afternoon Deelites, 8th; music producer Berry Gordy, 1994 Powis Castle, 8th; film producer Albert Broccoli, 1994 Brocco, 4th; New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, 1997 Concerto, 9th; and former NBA and current University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino, 1998 Halory Hunter, 4th, and 2001 A P Valentine, 7th.
Terrell Owens & Crew at Derby
A direct descendant of England’s Epsom Derby, the Kentucky Derby has been attended on four separate occasions by British royalty. The first came in 1930, when Edward George Villiers Stanley, the 17th Earl of Derby and a representative of the family from whom the term Derby was derived, became the first member of Actress Zoe Saldana at the 133rd Kentucky Derbythe English nobility to attend. Prohibition was in effect at the time and Lord Derby expressed his disappointment in not being able to sample a mint julep. “You have a great many advantages I should like to copy for England,” Derby said, “but prohibition is not one of them.” Derby was followed in 1951 by the Duke of Windsor, who had renounced the British throne in 1936 so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
The 100th running of the Kentucky Derby in 1974 brought Princess Margaret and her husband, Lord Snowdon. The most recent visit by British royalty came in 2007, when Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II attended with her husband, Prince Philip.
Eight U.S. Presidents have witnessed the Derby and marveled at the pageantry and spectacle of the famed event. Future President Harry S. Truman was reported as the first and was followed in 1952 by Lyndon Johnson who attended as a Texas senator. In 2000, future President George W. Bush, who would win the election that same year, was on hand for the 126th running of the Derby with his father former President George Herbert Walker Bush.
Only Richard M. Nixon attended while serving in office. He had visited in 1968 as guest of Kentucky Governor Louie B. Nunn and commented that if he was elected President he would return to the 1969 Derby. That year also attracted two future presidents Gerald R. Ford and Ronald Reagan. No other President has witnessed more Derbys than Ford. Beginning in 1977, Ford and his wife Betty attended almost every Derby for 10 years as guests of longtime friend John Galbreath, a former Churchill chairman of the board. In 1983, for the 109th Derby, two past Presidents and one future president were in attendance. Ford was joined by Jimmy Carter, the Democrat who had defeated him in 1976, and then Vice President George Bush, who would win the 1988 presidential election. In 1999, Al Gore joined the list of vice presidents that attended the Derby. That list includes: 1931, Charles Curtis; 1937, John Nance Garner; and 1958 Alben Barkley.

Two authors/scholars from U. C. Berkeley and Oxford University, England, that are writing a book entitled “Bread and Flowers” about how the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation Food Programs has transformed the communities that we serve. It is planned that there will be a film from the book adaptation as well.
To understate the obvious, there is no food program transforming the communities and certainly no book entitled “Bread and Flowers” without our donors! The book is not even about the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, it’s the new “spirit” that one feels from the communities that we serve and how it’s renewal of the souls has brought people together across all walks of life, every social, economic and spiritual stratus.
People are amazed that they can not only see the difference in the communities but feel it as well! There have been so many stories of adversaries becoming friends and advocates of each other; people whom formerly would not speak to each other now sharing a meal and conversation; weekend school students teaching parents with a pastry; criminals sharing bread and recipes with victims and former targets!
You see, we can’’t take credit for any of this, nor is the book about us receiving credit for it, but we must give credit where credit is due, to ALL our partners, YOU being one of our majors!
In that regard, I have talked with the writers to see if they would be interested in doing a short interview for the book discussing how they feel about the incredible efforts of you ALL that have been involved in this great humanitarian good. I would like to have you or others that you think would be good to expound on this philosophy and how you perceive your role in helping the needy. This insight would be the spring board and bond to the transformations that have taken place. The perfect transition from you, to us, to the transformation among the communities, completing the circle. Please call (510) 394-4101 if you are interested in participating.

After witnessing my mother and father give freely to others since I was a child from the1950’s until their death, charity struck a cord with me. I often thought, “how and in whatway I could contribute anything close to the enormous good they had done so often for so many?”. My parents purchased land and built a church for their personal pastor and to accompany that, they also built him and his family a home as well.
As I grew and matured, became more knowledgeable, sophisticated, and worldly, and as my faith and religious acumen blossomed, I realized the prodigious importance of building a house of worship and the infinite blessings that flow from such an achievement. I had to find a way to fulfill that potential within me as my parents had set the bar very, very high!
I knew that I didn’t have to re-invent the wheel as there was an incredible model for success that I could really make a difference and give back to my community by continuing the programs that my parents had forged when I was a child! So the A&MWF began with the
support of friends, neighbors, acquaintances, religious leaders, community members, and businesses dedicated to helping others. The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (A&MWF) is a non-denominational, multi-cultural,100% volunteer financed and operated relief organization that provides FREE food, medicine, clothing, educational and employment opportunities, mental and physical health referrals, legal aid, shelter and other necessities to individuals, children, families, and organizations who lack these essentials for any reason. We provide private school and college admissions educational opportunities; assists with referrals for job training and placement; rental assistance; social services assistance; homelessness assistance; mental and physical health assistance; medical assistance and legal aid assistance referrals FREE for ANYONE whom has the need at the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation website.
AMWF Paypal A&MWF, a public services organization based on GIVING AND SHARING, has created a 100% volunteer self-operated, self-supported, self financed model defined by developing the marketplace of a network that features high-performing results in the invaluable areas of: youth development; elementary, secondary and college education; poverty alleviation; mental and physical health medical services; social services, as well as other economic-empowerment programs for individuals, families; and small businesses.
A&MWF is pioneering a new trend, as government and community funds grapple with the recession and the challenges of raising funds, WE have forged an awareness and sustained an effort to connect those in dire need with service providers, donors, volunteers and nonprofit groups with these causes. We have taken community foundations and moved into social networking, reaching beyond static “bricks and mortar” to interactive Web sites to serve as a “dynamic virtual clearinghouses or town square” that holds conversations between those in NEED and their local charities, citizens, donors, and volunteers.
Every month thousands of San Francisco/ Oakland Bay Area residents rely on the AMWF Community Food Program for nutritious food and social service resources. As a local entity providing free food to those in need, we are seeing a significant increase in the percentage of children we serves, as county food banks see a spike in pleas for help. “51 percent of individuals served … are infants, children and teenagers. In the past, the percentage of people under 18 was 40 percent.”
The change is attributed to an increase in the number of families seeking emergency food aid. “Traditionally we’ve seen more demand for services from the western end of the city, but we are seeing an increase in need in the central part, and we even have people from the Hills and the affluent parts of town”.
The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Community Food Programs (AMWF), a multi-ethnic, multi-issue community-based organization, continues to carry out its mission of a society in which all persons flourish as it provides and refers comprehensive services — in collaboration with other hunger, health care, housing, violence, abuse, counseling, senior, youth, women, children, civil rights, employment, and education response agencies — to thousands of men, women and children living in San Francisco/ Oakland Bay Area in California to help transform the lives of people in need.
AMWF extends these various services and programs to the economically, mentally, and physically challenged; the poor and homeless; the undereducated and undeserved; people living with symptomatic HIV and AIDS; substance abuse; seniors 55 years and older; prenatal women; at risk youth; and homebound people living with serious illness.
Our members, and the people we serve are of different race, faith, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation and income levels. AMWF by providing direct services, including providing nutritious food; edvocating for and participating in many relevant social service programs that promote the self-sufficiency of people in need; educating the general public about these issues, their causes and this partial solution while inspiring a consummate social conscience and honoring the dignity of every person. As part of that principal mission, AMWF works for basic economic survival security for all and the elimination of poverty by providing these services thus effecting societal and governmental policies that regulate the less fortunate to the bottom of the economic, social, health, and opportunity pyramid, with full understanding that any policy which affects the poorest of us affects all of us.
By catering to everyone we have built many allies with statewide and national anti-hunger organizations to support legislation addressing low-income people’s food needs. In doing so, we help build power in our communities and win institutional changes on the issues that affect our lives as we provide fresh, hot, nutritious meals and bags of groceries with healthy meat, fish, breads, perishable and nonperishable food, such as canned vegetables and fruits, tuna fish, peanut butter, rice, dry beans and pasta, at a location near their home that are served to anyone without restriction.
A&MWF has made it easy and effortless for service providers, donors, volunteers and nonprofit groups to connect with those in NEED, as we have received more individuals needs profiles submitted on this site. The profiles include their contact information, information about their needs, desired solutions, pleas for their need satisfaction, and a listing of opportunities to achieve their solution. We also have profiles submitted of individuals as prospective donors or volunteers, include information about the causes that interest them.
We look forward to our being able to do business together helping those most in need while providing you with incredible branding opportunities with maximum media exposure for the greatest community relations benefit and increased business development. There is no better branding than to be perceived as a company that cares for the less fortunate, the working man, and the environment while presenting a quality product at a great price and being socially conscious. Your customer feels that they are contributing to your good efforts as if they are doing it themselves!
If you or someone that you know needs Quality of Life Aid, PLEASE fill out the form below so that we can determine the best way to assist them.
Anyone can register at https://AMWFTRUST.ORG by submitting an online request form in a strictly confidential submission and they can also feel free to call the number (510) 394-4101 as well.

Angels Make Bostock Top Salaried Player 

Los Angeles Times

Ex-Twin Signs for Five Years, $3 Million Plus 

BY DON MERRY, Times Staff Writer

Times Staff Writer 

Outfielder Lyman Bostock, who turns 27 today, signed a five-year contract with the Angels Monday for an estimated $3 million plus-one of the most lucrative deals ever for an athlete. 

Obviously, Angel owner Gene Autry still has some bullion in his saddlebags after investing more than $7 million last summer to purchase free agents Joe Rudi, Bobby Grich and Don Baylor (for $5.2 million) and pitchers Dave LaRoche, Ken Brett and Gary Nolan. 

The signing of Bostock culminated an incredible financial turnabout for the former Minnesota Twin, who played out his option last season and hit 336, second in the American League to teammate Rod Carew’s .388. 

Slapped with the maximum 20% pay cut invoked by club owner Calvin Griffith when he refused to sign, Bostock worked last summer for $20,000. 

Lyman Bostock signs RICHEST contract in Baseball History with Angles owner Gene Autry

This summer, he will play for at least $600,000. 

Although no official figure was divulged, both Bostock and his agent, Abdul Jalil, indicated it was in excess of $3 million and that based strictly on annual income Bostock is now the highest-salaried player in the game. 

Asked if he was the highest paid, Bostock smiled and said, “As far as I know.” 

Jalil, asked if Bostock is a $3 million player, replied, “Yes. In fact, you might be a little short.” 

He indicated Bostock could have had more. 

“We could have named our own price either with the New York Yankees or the San Diego Padres,” Jalil said. “If I had been Lyman Bostock, I would be wearing pinstripes now. 

“What we gave up by not signing with the Yankees, most players would willingly sign for.” 

Jalil said the Angel deal was at least $250,000 less than the Yankee offer-there were considerations other than money. 

A big factor is that Bostock is from the Los Angeles area- he attended Manual Arts High School, where he was practically ignored as a prospect-and his mother lives here. 

In New York, a spokesman for the Yankees denied Jalil’s claim they offered Bostock more money than the Angels. 

Bostock Top Salaried

“That’s an out-and-out lie,” the spokesman said. “Our offer is nowhere near the figure the Angels offered Bostock.” He said the Yankee offer to Bostock was less than what the club had dangled in front of Richie Zisk, who signed with Texas, and Larry Hisle, who signed with Milwaukee. 

Bostock Top Salaried cont- Bostock Turns Down Yanks

Zisk signed for $2.7 million while Hisle got nearly $3 million for six years. 

Bostock’s original asking price was $2.7 million. 

Although he said he enjoyed living in Minnesota, Bostock had no compunction about leaving. 

“He (owner Calvin Griffith) felt he only needed me when the pressure was on him to sign me,” Bostock said. “I hope he misses me more than I’m going to miss him.” 

Bostock, a natural center fielder, produced career highs in all offensive categories last year. Besides his .336 average, he collected 199 hits, 36 doubles, 12 triples, 14 homers and 90 RBI. 

The addition of Bostock, a left handed hitter, gives the Angels a formidable— and expensive—outfield. He joins Rudi, who signed a reputed $2 million long-term contract last year, and Bobby Bonds, Bonds’ two- year contract expired at the end of the 1977 season and he will be looking for a hefty, multiyear package. 

Bostock also was courted by the Toronto Blue Jays, who made him the No. 1 pick in the free-agent re-entry draft, and the Milwaukee Brewers. 

The Brewers offered the companionship of Bostock’s former teammate at Minnesota, Larry Hisle, but could not compete financially. Bostock said he was “afraid” of San Diego owner Ray Kroc and thus the Padres were easy to dismiss. He said he was also leery of the “dog-eat-dog lifestyle” of New York and assumed he wouldn’t particularly enjoy playing in the April snow of Toronto. 

Bostock decided to join the Angels Friday, and Monday faced repeated questions about his sudden wealth. 

“Nobody bothers to look at singers or dancers or actors,” he said. “Look at Elton John. He made $7 million last year.” 

Autry, who was not dissuaded from again plunging into the free-agent market despite last season’s relatively unspectacular results when injuries shelved both Grich and Rudi before midseason and Baylor began slowly, said he had talked to Minnesota manager Gene Mauch about Bostock’s capabilities. 

“He told me that Lyman Bostock was definitely the second-best hitter (behind Carew) that he had seen in the American League—or even in the National League,” Autry said. “He said he wouldn’t doubt that one day he would lead the league in hitting.” 

Angels general manager Buzzie Bavasi complimented his newest player when he said: “Considering was the guy that wouldn’t pay (Don) Drysdale or (Sandy) Koufax $100,000, you can tell what I think of Lyman Bostock.” 

“Money is something I’ve never had in abundance,” Bostock said. “I’m not going to let it go to my head.” 

* **

The Angels are apparently resigned to Gene Mauch remaining as manager of the Minnesota Twins. 

“As far as I’m concerned the issue is closed,” Bavasi said Monday. “We’re not going to give a ball club away to get a manager.”

Are you interested in growing your business? We are offering a FREE Business analysis and will discuss your needs for an overall Strategic Plan including a Website upgrade with a national media campaign, after you have completed the Strategic Planning Client Questionnaire on our website and schedule a meeting to contract our services and move forward to SUCCESS!
We can mount a media campaign for you with events and advantages your business offers to potential clients as the centerpiece of that effort. This could not only provide exposure and build your new brand, but could also build your business development with corporate sponsors, business partners, non-profit organizations and donors.
You could be your own special BRAND within and without the business campaign! This will not detract from the business campaign in any way and inevitably lead to other business opportunities, and a very effective social position that will allow you to achieve more business goals!
We will be integrally involved in creating the campaign concept with you as both a separate branded entity and the business brand. We would develop them within the overall brand platform and defining a tangible brand experience across the myriad offerings of the business services and social activities. Our work will touch on all aspects of the business as a brand, and the brand’s physical presentation; client offerings; programs; events; promotions; Web site; marketing; advertising; publicist; social media managements; sponsorship vehicles; and creation of “your business Community” through multi-channel strategies for both traditional and new media to engender an engaging, interactive and sustainable customer experience.
We will to develop and create expedient, viable, replicable solutions to optimize your bottom line, raise your public profile and social perception while increasing the satisfaction quotient for your customers.
From the great success that we have had with our Free Food Programs established in the 1950’s by my Parents, Aaron and Margaret Wallace, we have since been instrumental in the founding and supplying of other free food service organizations around the country.
With the demand for our help in creating these organizations being driven by the skyrocketing need for the services, we have decided to open up our efforts to all interested in starting a food pantry for the needy.
We can provide access to the training necessary to qualify your organization and partner you with the local organizations and businesses that can support your efforts. Contact us and we will help you through the RED TAPE and push your program to success!
We were honored in Miami, Florida and Port Au Prince, Haiti last month for the Relief Missions that we have sent to Haiti since the earthquake and are currently up for an EMMY with “OUT. The Glenn Burke Story”, have already won several honors for it and expect more.
Special “Thanks” to all that have supported our efforts over the years!
