I'm visiting St. Boniface next Friday to learn about volunteering. Will you join me?
Thanks for supporting my campaign! Having pledged to support The Gubbio Project, I decided to go ahead and volunteer. I've been wanting to do something about homelessness since moving to SF and seeing it everywhere, every day, in my neighborhood. I admit I was somewhat reluctant to follow through because I've done volunteer work of this nature before and I know it means putting myself in uncomfortable social situations. Caring for the wellbeing of other people is an incredibly difficult thing to do, especially when you're doing most of the giving and not getting much of anything in return. But I want to live in a city where people aren't homeless, and the best way to start understanding the problem of homeless is to get involved.
I sent an email yesterday to Laura Slattery ([email protected]) about volunteering. I scheduled time to visit St. Boniface Church next Friday at noon to talk with her about how I can help. If any of you are still planning to volunteer, I'd be glad to meet you there (or if you're one of my co-workers, we can leave from the office together). Just email me at [email protected] and let me know.
In the mean time, I'll be posting stories and photos of my experiences to this campaign, so you can stay up-to-date.
Please message me if you've any questions!
