During the Northern California wildfires, St. Anthony’s opened a temporary overnight refuge to help shelter our homeless neighbors from poor air quality. There were many emotions expressed by guests, volunteers, and staff as we watched our community go through great deals of hardship. One of our staff, Madeira, touched on her experience working at St. Anthony’s in this state of emergency. “I just passed my year anniversary of working at St. Anthony’s. I’ve had highs and lows but today I was truly reminded as to why I chose to work here. As the wildfires have continued to spread, and the smoke has continued to build up in the city, our guests are struggling at an all-time high. The air quality is worsening and most of our guests—quite literally—cannot escape it. Because of this, we have opened our doors an hour before our meal service starts so our guests don’t have to wait outside but can come in to the Dining Room where there is clean, filtered air. Schools are now closing for the safety and health of their students in Northern California.

Fleet Week’s Day of Service

It’s officially San Francisco’s Fleet Week! This year, St. Anthony’s was fortunate to host over 30 Marine and Navy personnel from the U.S. and Canada. Fleet Week’s day of service began with our Justice Education (JE) talk, which highlights the Tenderloin neighborhood as well as homeless and low income populations that St. Anthony’s serves. After orientation, our Fleet Week volunteers made their way to the Dining Room and Free Clothing Program to begin their shifts. As service began, our volunteers got right to helping out by getting meals ready, delivering trays, and bussing tables. Through the shift, it was apparent that volunteers were doing much more than serving meals and sorting clothing—they were spending time with our guests and becoming part of our community. Volunteers and guests smiled, shared stories, and enjoyed each other’s company—all in all, it was a great way to celebrate Fleet Week and connect with our global community.
