Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco


Importance: Put a smile on your neighbor's face this holiday season! Episcopal Community Services (ECS) is San Francisco's most impactful provider of housing and support services for people experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty. We center holistic services to provide each person the necessary care to prevent and end homelessness. Every year, our Holiday Gift Drive ensures everyone we serve has a gift to open during the holidays and this year, we have over 2,600 gifts to provide.

Description: Buy a holiday gift for a guest in need! All gifts are $25 and under. This year, we are asking for towel sets, warm fleece jackets and gift cards to Target, Trader Joe's or Ross. There are two ways to participate:

  • Email esannicolas@ecs-sf.org with the number of individuals you would like to adopt. She will give you a list of names and from there you can shop for the individual and either mail or drop off your gift sometime in early December.
  • Buy directly from our Amazon wish list at tinyurl.com/HolidayDrive2020 (please either also send wrapping paper or ask Amazon to wrap the gift for you)

Deadline: We need all gifts in our office no later than December 11, 2020.

Please email the Volunteer and Events Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns at esannicolas@ecs-sf.org
