Tis the giving season, and SDCE is in a holiday mood. We are collecting gifts for 50 or so, of our friends in the Calliope.
The List- check it twice! Candy, Jerky, Dried fruit, Socks, Blank book and pen, Batteries, Pen lights, pen knife. chap stick. small packs of wipes or tissues, canned goods w/ez lid, Camping gear, hoodies, scarves gloves, Caps. Something frivolous a homeless person might want. Boxes, tape. wrapping paper.
We will also be bringing water, oranges, and nut bars or pizza weekly to the Calliope.
We are donating $250 to Southern Solidarity, who feed homeless camps all over the city. They are in need of drivers, and people to cook from home and/ or divvy up hot plates.
We have given St Mark's $500 for their gift boxes for their homeless outreach.
We are passing $500 to Laura Paul and Lower9.org along with our congratulations on their opening a real brick and mortar pantry. In the coming year, they will need our help with food distribution as well as laboring in their home rebuilding program.
