We're pleased to announce our 4rd Annual Holiday Meal and Outreach Event! Join us as we come together to provide a full holiday meal, services, gifts, kindness and more to the veterans, men and women of San Diego transitioning out of homelessness. At this event we will serve approximately 200 people. We will be serving a full and festive holiday meal of tukey, sides, and desserts. We are pleased to be partnering with Island Village and Alpha Project and their mission to house those on the streets. We will be serving those in varying stages of transitioning from the streets to temporary or permament housing. *Please see timeline below and let us know which volunteer slot you would like so we're sure we have enough volunteers in each area.
Special Holiday Gifts! To spread extra holiday cheer we'd love to raffle off as many gift cards as we can to the attendees of our Holiday Dinner Party. During the holidays a lot of companies offer specials on gift cards where you buy one get one free or half price. Del Taco, Coffee Bean, Applebee's, Chili's, Macaroni Grill, and Panera are just a few. If you are buying gift cards to give as gifts, why not get a free bonus gift card to give to those in need! If you would like to donate gift cards please bring them to the next event. We will raffle them off to our dinner guests.
