Lars Frederiksen is the subject of a new San Francisco Chronicle piece looking at his recent charity efforts through the 10th and Mission Family Housing Apartments. The article explains that the Rancid member has been giving out free skateboards to teenagers after striking up a friendship with San Francisco's homeless policy director, Dariush Kayhan, who invited him to attend Project Homeless Connect this month. The article spoke to Lars who said this:
It was emotional. But I was thinking that when people donate toys, it is always the teenagers that get left out. That's when I got Tony Hawk on the phone. ou never forget where you came from. I remember eating Raisin Bran for Christmas dinner. But some of these kids have it a lot worse than I ever did.
