Serve Day

Williams-Sonoma | MLK Serve Day

On Monday, January 31, Williams-Sonoma took the day to serve in the Tenderloin with City Impact. About 200 Williams-Sonoma team members came out to serve meals in the Rescue Mission, deliver meals through Adopt a Building, and help organize clothing in preparation for the relaunch of our thrift store: Threads for Therapy.

Volunteers were briefed and broke out into groups to serve for the day alongside City Impact staff and School of Ministry students. Alex Quock, the Missions Manager from City Impact had a great experience working with the Williams Sonoma team. “The Williams-Sonoma team was great to work with—Kevin was so responsive and prepared!” Likewise, one team member had an impactful experience themselves.

CRU Serve Day

CRU served at City Impact for their 2019 Winter Conference in San Francisco on Saturday, January 19. Around 200 students gathered for worship, a brief training, and encouragement from Pastor Roger Huang, founder of City Impact, before breaking out into groups. Pastor Roger shared about how he began serving 35 years ago, and there was no one to welcome him to the Tenderloin, no one to show him the ropes. After making 50 sandwiches and through prayer, persistence, resilience, City Impact has become what it is today mobilizing over 8,000 volunteers a year.

Students served in different outreaches including Street Ministry, Meal Prep, Meal Delivery, Kitchen Operations, and TL Revive’s sit down outdoor cafe. We are so thankful for those serving alongside City Impact, and a long-term ministry that will be here the next day.

Thank you CRU, Cru LA, CRU San Diego, Cru Cal Poly Slo, Cru Central Coast, and Cru UW!
