Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco

Importance: Episcopal Community Services (ECS) is San Francisco's largest and most impactful provider of supportive housing and services to people experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty. Every year, our Annual Holiday Gift Drive ensures that everyone we serve has a gift to open during the holiday season, but wrapping paper is both expensive and wasteful.

Description: Help reduce waste while brightening someone's holiday season! We are looking for volunteers to decorate used paper grocery bags to be repurposed as holiday gift bags for our Annual Holiday Gift Drive. Feel free to decorate the bags in whatever way you see fit, but please ensure they are appropriate for all ages.

Timeline: We need all bags in our office no later than 12/4.

Please email Emily San Nicolas at esannicolas@ecs-sf.org to get involved! Want to provide a holiday gift to someone in need? Email esannicolas@ecs-sf.org to see how you can put a smile on someone's face this holiday season.
