December 17, 2016 at Against The Stream: San Francisco in San Francisco.
Please join us on Saturday 12/17 at 10 AM, at the SF center, to put together care packages that we will be distributing to people who are homeless in our community. We will be collecting warm clothing and supplies that folks need. We can use donations as well as labor for putting packages together. For those who are comfortable doing so, we will also be hitting the streets in small groups to deliver packages to people. So come on down, whether to drop off goods, put packages together or to distribute them. We need the following items: Coats, blankets, rain ponchos, warm clothing, hats, socks, hand warmers, gloves, tooth brushes, tooth paste, tampons, pads, aspirin, tylenol, ibuprofen, snacks, wet wipes, kleenex, cold/flu meds and whatever else you can think of that people on the street could use. We could also use old tote bags and gallon size ziplock bags to put items in. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with the sangha and to practice generosity that is desperately needed.
