Holiday Card Writing for the Children and Families of Bayview Mission
This holiday season, Grace Cathedral’s Congregation Council invites congregants and neighbors to write heart-warming holiday cards for the children and families of Bayview Mission. We welcome you to please visit our dedicated card-writing table on Sundays during the 11 am Coffee Hour. These cards may be both appreciated by the Bayview community while also providing an opportunity for Grace congregants to get involved and experience the sacredness of giving through the act of writing. Cards and pens will be provided! Join us to write a card or two after the Eucharist.
Holiday “Basic Necessities” Giving Opportunities
Congregants and neighbors are invited to partner with our neighbors at GLIDE this holiday season to support the residents of the Tenderloin community served by GLIDE. In collaboration with GLIDE and Grace Cathedral’s Congregation Council, we are collecting some of the items most requested and needed by Glide’s clients: new men’s and women’s socks, tampons and sanitary pads, toiletries, reusable tote bags (can be gently used), umbrellas, raingear, small snacks, and gently used sweatshirts and coats. Please bring donations to our Congregation Council “Welcome!” table during the 11 am Coffee Hour, or you can purchase items online through a dedicated Amazon Wish List. (Items purchased online will be sent to a council member’s home for delivery to Glide. Select “Phoebe Campbell, Sonoma, Ca” in the drop-down shipping address menu.)
To distribute these items, Grace will have a volunteer-staffed table at Glide’s “Community Hub” at 330 Ellis Street from 10:30 am — 1 pm on December 3, 10 and 17th. The table is outdoors, and COVID protocols such as mask-wearing are observed by staff and clients. Joining us for one or more Fridays will not only support the remarkable, resilient community Glide serves, it also provides the opportunity to learn more about GLIDE’s services and to meet their dedicated staff.
