In the words of nominator John Anning, the St. Francis Center in Redwood City is “local, practical, and proven. I have a dear friend whose whole family was saved from homelessness through the intervention of the St Francis Center, and UUFRC has done several clothing drives for them in the past. They provide immigration counseling, a food pantry, community gardens, showers and laundry, clothing, food, housing, and private school and after school programs – all for our neighbors.”
Donations can be made from the Friday before the service through the Tuesday following the service, using PayPal link https://www.uufrc.org/community/giving/ and writing “Share the Plate” in the memo line. On the Sunday of the collection, all donations, unless otherwise specified, go to Share the Plate.
