San Francisco City Impact – December 10th
During the Christmas holidays for the past three years, Holy Spirit has sent a group of 50 volunteers to San Francisco’s Tenderloin area to participate in two programs. This day of service and outreach in the Tenderloin is so meaningful, it has become a tradition for many of our Holy Spirit families.
The group will meet in the church parking lot on Saturday, December 10th at 7:15 a.m. A chartered bus will depart at 7:30 a.m. We will leave from San Francisco at approximately 3:00 p.m. and return to the church parking lot. There is a charge of $50 per person. It may be paid by Paypal (use button below) or by turning in a check at the Parish Office. It should be payable to Holy Spirit with “City Impact” written on the memo line.
One Holy Spirit group of approximately 25 children, mothers, and fathers participate in a holiday party for the children and their families who live in the Tenderloin. These families register to attend this event in the Fall. The party involves singing, dancing, games, lunch, and presents for the children. Families who attend also receive groceries for the holidays.
The remainder of the group will pick up boxes loaded with hot meals to distribute to the residents of the various “hotels” in the Tenderloin. Seeing their faces and sharing their joy at receiving hot food is a truly extraordinary gift! Middle school age students are welcome to participate with their families. Teens do not require adult chaperones. It is a great experience to share with your family, however we will be in large groups working together, so no one is alone.
Our day is an eye opening experience for everyone, but there is no reason to worry about your safety. All groups will be under the guidance of the trained City Impact staff.
