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 time 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 is signed up to serve December 1 - December 3, 2015 and then again February 12 - February 17, 2016.
Please sign up here to be included in emails about volunteering. We will send you a save-the-date email and then also contact you when sign-ups open for volunteering.
How do I get involved?
Please join our Winter Interfaith Volunteer email list to be sent a reminder closer to the next time we are going to serve, as well as an invitation to sign up.
What time commitment is expected?
You can sign up for a single or several evenings. We cook, serve, then clean up. The window for serving is from about 5 pm - 7 pm, but this can vary based on where the shelter is held.
Are you a great cook?
Have you cooked for groups before? Coordinated small teams of volunteers? We are especially looking for volunteers who can lead, or partner with someone to lead, one of the cooking teams. We will support you in being successful in this. If you would consider being a lead cook or a co-cook, please email the Rev. Andy Lobban or call 415-749-6364.
For further information, email the Rev. Andy Lobban or call 415-749-6364.
