Help Bring Baked Goods for the Clients of At The Crossroads
The holidays can be an extra hard time of year when you're a disconnected youth in San Francisco. The season's focus on family time and gift-giving can be very isolating for their clients who might be separated from family or might not have the resources they need to show their appreciation for loved ones. Every year, ATC throws a holiday party for their clients. It is a tradition that their clients and staff look forward to and a very special time to celebrate the amazing youth they work with. They are also looking for folks to help bake soft goods for their holiday party. Items must be individually wrapped, meaning no open platters of goods but rather items are in ziplock bags or saran wrapped. They ask that folks drop off the baked goods by 12/12 at 3pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in baking! Please help us raise $20,000 to bring the holidays to over 500 clients and their families. Your support will go a long way towards making the holidays special for their clients:
