Lina's Story | The Power of Christmas

Lina grew up in the Tenderloin District (inner city) of San Francisco. She was engrossed with the survival culture, and bullying in a tough area. Lina developed a hardness in order to protect herself from the pain. However, one tradition at City Impact tugged on Lina’s heart to keep returning each year. Learn more about Lina’s story through the video below.

The Pre-Christmas Outreach and Christmas Day Outreach host our Kids Christmas Toy Sign up & Giveaway. Families sign up for a small fee during the holiday season to receive a toy on the Pre-Christmas Outreach. Any families who missed the sign up can receive a toy FREE on Christmas Day.

San Francisco exists to intervene on behalf of the people in the inner city of San Francisco. We mobilize over 8,000 volunteers a year to intervene on behalf of others.

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! 

Enjoy the recap videos 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.
