City Academy Christmas Recital 2017

On Thursday, December 14, we hosted our City Academy Annual Christmas Recital. Our City Academy students performed 14 different acts in front of family, friends, volunteers, sponsors, and City Impact staff. Performances included: All I want for Christmas is You, Mistletoe by Justin Bieber, Jingle Bells, Noel, and more! Students danced, sang, and even performed comedic acts! Family, fun, and holiday cheer filled our sanctuary at 230 Jones as our students performed and displayed their talents!

Thank you to all our guests and attendees for the day. Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, and teachers for empowering our students!

Pre-Christmas Outreach 2017

Thank you to all the volunteers who served at our Pre-Christmas Outreach on December 9th. Around 125 people joined us on Saturday to serve children and residents in the Tenderloin. During the Christmas season, isolation and loneliness can heighten among the 30,000 residents that live in 305 apartment buildings. Many people remain inside and behind closed doors. It isn't easy spending the holidays alone, but with the help of many volunteers, City Impact is able to intervene on behalf of the men, women and children in the inner-city.

Volunteers who came on Saturday served at our Kids Christmas party, sit-down cafe, assisted in meal prep and meal deliveries, building parties, beauty area, and in our health clinic.

Here are some details of the day:

  • 1,000 meals served at our street cafe and through meal deliveries

  • 68 residents attending our community parties in their building

  • 200 hygiene kits passed out

  • 160 kids received Christmas gifts

  • 40 people received haircuts and makeovers

Thank you again to all the volunteers and sponsors, and special thanks to the kids and families who attended our Kids Christmas Party!

Please consider joining us on Christmas day at our Christmas Day Outreach for our last Holiday Outreach of the year. Learn more through the link below.

Christmas Day Outreach

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Christmas Day Outreach! We had around 350 volunteers serving over 1,600 meals. The street was closed off for the day to welcome community members into our sit down cafe and kids Christmas party! 200 people enjoyed a meal and conversation at the sit down cafe before checking out the clothing area. About 250 kids and parents crafted graham cracker houses, sang and danced, heard a Christmas message and received Christmas toys. 

Thank you again to all the volunteers, kids and parents who joined us for the 2016 Christmas Day Outreach!

Special thank you to TriCal Rentals for sponsoring our block party outreach! 

We need 200 sponsors by the end of year! Please consider sharing about our child sponsorship program at sfcityimpact.com/sponsor-a-child.
