Third Annual Holiday Care Packages for the Homeless Event - December 14, 2011

About the Event...

On December 14th, 2011 from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m at U.C. Hastings College of the Law, ABC volunteers got together to assemble and distribute holiday care packages for the homeless in the Tenderloin region of San Francisco. This year we put together 200 bags, each containing a poncho, hat, gloves, scarf, fleece blanket, body lotion, chapstick, hand sanitizer, socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, tissues, snacks, holiday candy and a hand written holiday card. We had a record number of volunteers this year (around 30!) and brought smiles to a lot of faces as we handed out the care packages to those living on the street or in shelters in the immediate area. Our volunteers enjoyed mulled wine, pizza and holiday cookies as we worked on assembling the care packages. Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers and our many donors - your time and money brought a lot of holiday joy this year.
