A Sacramento County worker is combining his love for art with serving his community. LeRoid David, an employee with Sacramento County’s Senior and Adult Services, enjoys finding ways to help others both professionally and in his personal life. LeRoid is an artist and uses his talents to help with community causes. LeRoid started working for the Public Conservator’s Office four years ago, managing to balance his regular work responsibilities with his freelance career.
“I’ve always been very community-oriented, and I do take my work with Sacramento County with pride,” LeRoid says.
Recently, LeRoid was invited to decorate the Golden 1 Center.
“I thought that it would be something great to get involved in,” he shared.
LeRoid’s art will soon be on display at Golden 1 Center, as part of the “Stop the Hate” campaign, which brings awareness to hate crimes against Asian Americans. LeRoid’s work is inspired by his Filipino heritage and passion for uniting art with social engagement.
“I would always try to find ways to connect art with community events,” says LeRoid.
But LeRoid says the message in his most recent work for the “Stop the Hate” Campaign serves as a much bigger reminder that we can all do our part to serve our community, help stop hate crimes, and speak up against hateful words and discrimination.
“The message not only applies to the Filipino community, but to everyone else as well,” he says.
LeRoid’s artwork extends beyond individual projects. He’s also collaborated with sports teams, including the San Francisco Giants, 49ers, Warriors, and Kings.
Despite his success, LeRoid remains humble. He values the collaborative efforts within his workplace and wants people to know that the work done at Senior and Adult Services is important. He says he wants to acknowledge the tremendous work his coworkers do and shares that he is not alone in finding ways to help our community and that everyone in the department strives to make Sacramento County a better place.
“I take pride in the department I work for,” LeRoid says.
LeRoid fully embraces Sacramento County’s core values of principle, respect, innovation, diversity and inclusion, and excellence. LeRoid’s passion and dedication are a reminder that everyone can find ways to create positive change where they live.
