Bay Area Holiday Angels: Sheryl Davis

The Examiner celebrates people who made a difference in 2007.

Sheryl Davis

Occupation: Outreach program coordinator

Residence: Western Addition

What she does: Davis is the chief organizer of Mo Magic, a Western Addition-based community activism group. Davis helps convene semi-monthly meetings where neighborhood groups, local merchants and various city agencies discuss planning of community-based activities. Under Davis’ direction, Mo Magic has established backpack giveaways for area children, family-style dances and events at City Hall.

Why she does it: “We really wanted to find ways to meaningfully impact the people of this community,” said Davis, who works as a program coordinator at private schools Stuart Hall and Convent of the Sacred Heart. “Mo Magic started as a way to build the community and get folks together.”

The impact: According to Davis, it was one of the safest summers in recent history in the Western Addition. “It’s so important to make the residents of this community feel empowered, and that’s what Mo Magic is all about. We talk so much about keeping the momentum and the synergy of this project going.”
