What is it?
The Winter Interfaith Shelter is sponsored by the San Francisco Interfaith Council and run by Episcopal Community Services. The Interfaith Shelter provides dinner/breakfast and a dry place to sleep for 60-100 homeless men during the coldest part of the year. Grace Cathedral cooperates with many other congregations in San Francisco in this important endeavor.
Where is it?
The location where we cook and serve varies each year but it is always in San Francisco.
When is it?
The program runs from Thanksgiving week into February -- the winter months. Grace Cathedral usually serves two separate weeks during this time period.
How do I get involved?
Please join our Winter Interfaith Volunteer email list to be notified when the next time is coming to serve. We contact all our volunteers with dates and sign-up information. We usually serve in late November and late January/early February, but the dates change from year to year.
What time commitment is expected?
You can sign up for a single or several evenings. We cook, serve, then clean up. The cooking shifts are 2-3 hours; the serving/cleanup shifts are 1 1/2 -2 hours each evening.
For further information, email the Rev. Andy Lobban or call 415-749-6364.
