Drive Up, Drop Off, DonateOctober 27th, 2009
by Alina Trowbridge
There’s something about the holidays that switches people’s giving instincts from Cash to Carry. (Yes, people do have an instinct to give.)
They want to give objects more than money. Maybe it’s the idea of a giving a present rather than something that looks like payment. More likely, it’s because they’re already out shopping.
St. Anthony Foundation can always use objects. And during Thanksgiving and Christmas week, we make it easy for you to donate. Drive up to 119 Golden Gate (between Leavenworth and Jones) and pull over. Volunteers will unload your donations and give you a receipt.
VOLUNTEER: Unload donations from arriving cars. Sort items to get them to the right St. Anthony program and onward to our guests. Organize a donation drive at your school or worksite.
