Good neighbors gathered around in the OMI and Bayview neighborhoods to deliver turkeys and fixings to those in needed – almost 1,300 household received this holiday blessing. This would not have been possible without the generous support of the Glide Food Program. Yet it marked the annual event where a broad cross-section of groups and individuals pitch in to identify families in need and help support in a multitude of ways. Special thanks go out -in the OMI, to Deb Glen and the CLC team, Patti Clement and Catholic Charities and all the organizations that help arranged delivery to 600 households in the neighborhood. In the Bayview, this would not have been possible without support from the SFHealth Department – Veronica Shepard, Tracy-Shaw Senigar, & Dr. Paula Jones; the CLC Team led by Chester Williams, Beverly Taylor and Jerry Mixon, Having Pride UNITI, Dr. Emily Wade Thompson, Joseph Lee Recreation Center and the Bayview Opera House, and the Faith Based Coalition. And we stretched to meet the extra need, thanks to A. Philip Randolph Institute and San Francisco Health Department for extra turkeys and Meals on Wheels for helping round-up turkeys to deliver to the site.
With this, we wish you and yours a happy, healthy, food-filled holiday season!
