Today the Rev. Canon Nina Pickerrell and Outreach Administrator Tracee Zyla were recognized for Grace Cathedral’s leadership in the Winter Shelter Program at the San Francisco Interfaith Council’s monthly breakfast.
The San Francisco Interfaith Council makes initiatives including the Winter Interfaith Shelter possible, and for that we are so grateful. The Interfaith Shelter provides dinner, breakfast and a dry place to sleep for homeless men during the coldest and wettest time of the year. This year, Grace Cathedral cooked and served a total of 420 meals to homeless men. Grace Cathedral cooperates with many other congregations in San Francisco in this important endeavor.
Congratulations to Nina and her team for their dedication to our communities in need. Outreach Ministries would also like to thank their many generous volunteers, Stitching Ministry for their handmade hats and blankets and the Cathedral School for Boys for preparing many of the meals and packing lunches for the following day.
The Winter Interfaith Shelter starts back up in November. In the meantime, there are many ways to volunteer at Grace. We are preparing for our second Stop Hunger Now event in July, and would love to have you join us.
