SHPE SFBA Volunteering @ St. Anthonys Dining Room Services Dec. 6, 9:00 AM 2015 at St. Anthony Foundation

As we start the holiday season, most of us take time to give thanks for all that we have and also reflect on the past year and spend time with family. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to do so. This time of year is also a great time to give back to our community.

We have signed up to volunteer at St. Anthonys Dining Room Services to help serve about 2,600 lunches to the poor and homeless.

This location is about two blocks from the Civic Center BART Station and we are required to be there from 9am to 1:45pm. Space is limited to 10 volunteers so please fill out the Google Form below by next Tuesday, December 1st.
