San Francisco Immersion Trip: Make an Impact
Holy Spirit Parish is partnering with San Francisco City Impact to offer an immersion opportunity on Saturday, December 14 to help the poor in the Tenderloin district. As part of a pre-Christmas celebration, our parishioners will help with delivering food baskets, providing a hot lunch for Tenderloin residents, and helping with a Christmas party and toy distribution for kids who live in the district.
SF City Impact is a Christian based organization that has been ministering to the needs of the poor in this area of San Francisco since 1994. City Impact provides relief programs such as feeding, health care, and social services, while breaking unhealthy cycles through education, leadership training, and spiritual transformation. The Tenderloin is the poorest areas of San Francisco, yet is the most tightly condensed with 37,000 residents.
We will be one of many groups helping with this event. Holy Spirit is providing a bus for our volunteers that will leave the church parking lot at 7:30 a.m. on December 14 and will return to San Jose at approximately 3:00 p.m. The number of participants is limited to 50. While this opportunity is open to families, and there is no age limit, parents should consider the maturity level of their children when signing up.
**UPDATE: SIGN-UPS ARE FULL.**
