ORGANIZATION: St. Anthony Foundation

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 43 people are interested

St. Anthony’s (FCP) is San Francisco’s largest free clothing program serving both individuals and families. We provide warm clothes, interview or employment apparel, and children's clothing to homeless and low-income families and individuals. The Free Clothing Program serves approximately 125 guests a day in three services: Men's Service, Women's Service, and Family Service. It is our goal to distribute the highest quality of clothing possible to ensure that our guests have a positive and dignified shopping experience.

The Donation Processing Lead is part of a core volunteer group that serves as a role model for other Free Clothing Program volunteers. He/she will volunteer in all processing stations (sorting, sizing, hanging, etc.) and is seen as a resource for other volunteers to learn from. They help answer sorting-related questions, maintain effective sorting processes, and ultimately ensure our guests have access to the highest quality of clothing possible.

Duties & Tasks:

  • Assist with the processing of donations per FCP guidelines and standards.
  • Sort donations by clothing type and select highest quality clothing for distribution to guests.
  • Hang, size, steam, and prepare clothing for distribution.
  • Lead clothing processing stations and serve as a resource for other volunteers.
  • Support a team setting with a fun but efficient donation sorting environment.

Skills Required:

  • Excellent interpersonal, listening, and oral and written communication skills.
  • Excellent volunteer habits: professional, punctual, reliable, cooperative and team oriented.
  • Ability to successfully volunteer with a diverse client population including people who are homeless and/or low-income, and people with physical and/or mental health disabilities.
  • Ability to motivate a team to accomplish a shared goal.
  • Ability to lift 20 lbs.
  • Commitment to St. Anthony Foundation Statement of Values.

Please note that this opportunity is for individual volunteers only. If you would like to organize a group volunteer event, please email GroupVolunteer@stanthonysf.org. Thanks!

Mission Statement

St. Anthony Dining Room embodies the Franciscan spirit of service. For over 50 years, the Dining Room has offered warm, nourishing meals in a caring and respectful setting. St. Anthony staff and volunteers create a community of sharing in which all are welcome. The Dining Room serves over 2,000 meals per day and is open 365 days a year. There are no requirements or documentation necessary to eat in the Dining Room. The Dining Room is open at 11 a.m. for seniors 60 and older and families with children. Service for all other guests begins at noon. Seniors and families are served at their tables. The Dining Room also offers special accommodations to those with disabilities with recent medical documentation specifying disability. COVID-19 UPDATE: St. Anthony's is no longer offering dining room service, but are continuing to provide meals to the community to-go. 2 Hot meals per guest are served curbside in bags with silverware, sides, etc. from 10AM - 1:30PM daily.

Description

In 1950, Fr. Alfred Boeddeker, a Franciscan friar in San Francisco, had a vision for a place where anyone could find a hot meal, a friendly face, and a helping hand. He created a place where people in need could enjoy a meal in community with others. Today, we provide Essential Services since food, clothing, shelter, safety, and hygiene are human rights, Health Care because every person should have access to quality medical care and recovery services, and Options for a Brighter Future since everyone should have access to technology, as well as the chance to learn valuable skills and find productive work that earns livable wages.
In addition to these important things that we bring to the community, here at St. Anthony’s we affirm that we are called to accompany our guests along their journey to achieve the results they desire, whether that is a single clean load of laundry or a year-long stay with us to recover from a substance use disorder.
