Join us for our Farrington Pre-Thanksgiving Outreach on Saturday, November 10, 2018. A hands-on ministry experience.
We exist intervene on behalf of the people in the inner city of San Francisco.
Join this team to help throw building parties in the Apartment buildings. There is something powerful in being a good listener and neighbor in the TL. Sometimes we don’t need to offer an “outreach” to the building as much as we need to offer “life and celebration” in the buildings. Here is our chance to get alongside our neighbors, bbq, eat, hangout, play games, and get to know some of our neighbors in the inner city of San Francisco.
Those who sign up for the KITCHEN will prepare all the food for the 5,000 meals that will be delivered to the surrounding buildings. Over 3000 lbs. of turkey (turkey and turkey breast) will come through this kitchen. Duties include: deboning turkey, cooking mashed potatoes, and cooking, slicing and chopping vegetables. Any level of experience is welcome. This is the job that requires volunteers to move quick, work well with others, and is the first team to get started for the day. This team will most likely miss the day's orientation and volunteer briefing.
These groups are going to hand deliver the food to the people. All deliveries are done by walking. Vehicles are not necessary; however, if there are a few people that would like to drive, please let your leader know on that day. They will arrange for your group to take the meals that are furthest away. Families and those who don't want to be confined to one area love this task. All meals are carried in banana boxes to the assigned buildings.
This will be held in two locations. Each location is half a block away from each other. This whole event is based on getting hot Thanksgiving Dinners to 5,000 people who have signed up in advance for these meals. The meal delivery job is an assembly line formation and there is always a lot of energy in this team. If you are planning on bringing kids, this is a fun place for them to help and there is usually more space for them to roam. There will be 2-3 different meal prep sites all within 1/2 block from each other. If you want to serve with your friends, make sure you sign up for the same location.Often times, it might seem as if you're waiting around, however, this is the nature of the job. ALL the Meal Prep teams are doing their best to pump out the meals. So please be patient. This job is vital to getting the job done!
The Farrington Pre-Thanksgiving event features the sit-down Rescue Mission Banquet to invite our friends in the Tenderloin (inner city of San Francisco) to come in, sit-down, receive a hot meal and be heard. Many people who are homeless or alone do not have anyone to talk to. Volunteers and team members allow a chance for someone to be seen, listened to and reminded who they are. Spots in this outreach are specific reserved for CPC Danville in dedication to the late Beth Farrington, a long-time dedicated volunteer and mobilizer of SF City Impact.
You will engage the inner city youth with games, sports and other activities. One of our most fun, engaging and high energy outreaches!
