Holiday Helpers

It's great to teach the kids to give, not just get, during the holiday season. Here are some ideas on how to do that.

TOYS FOR TOTS
Many drop-off locations including
--Hillsdale Mall, San Mateo - December 1-22 (10 a.m. to 8 p.m. across from Bath and Body Works in lower level - new and used toys accepted)
--San Mateo Fire Stations - starting November 25th (new and used toys accepted)
--Caltrain Headquarters (1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos) through December 6
--Various locations/dates through San Bruno's Toys for Tots organization

FOOD PANTRIES
Second Harvest Food Bank
Jewish Family & Children's Service
San Francisco Food Bank

ONE WARM COAT DRIVE
Donate your unneeded coats to those who do need them. Find a drop-off location at One Warm Coat.

SHELTER NETWORK
Adopt a family for the holidays, create a gift basket, hold a gift drive, prepare and serve holiday dinners, or just donate to help those trying to get back on their feet, through the Shelter Network.

PROJECT OPEN HAND
the Jewish Family & Children's Service volunteers and members of Congregation Sha'ar Zahav are preparing and delivering meals for Project Open Hand on December 24 & 25th. To help or learn more, call 415-449-1288 or email rachelk@jfcs.org

JEWISH VOLUNTEER DAY
Wednesday, December 8th is the 4th annual Jewish Volunteer Day at the Project Homeless Connect, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It's a San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Get details or sign up by calling 415-977-7444 or email lbounaud@jcrc.org or register here.


I'll continue updating this during the season, so check back and add your own ideas in the comments section.
