The morning community service project will be held at the St. Anthony Foundation (SAF) in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. The mission of SAF is to feed, heal, shelter clothe, lift the spirit of those in need, and create a society in which all persons flourish. The Foundation is guided by the values of healing, community, personalism (respecting diversity and treating all people with dignity and respect), justice and gratitude. This service project will include an introduction to the St. Anthony Foundation, the Tenderloin, and the unmet legal needs in the community. The hands on part of the project will include assisting in preparing and serving the lunch meal (in which we will be invited and encouraged to join the guests for lunch) and other opportunities may be available depending on the size of the group including working in the Tenderloin Tech Lab, Adult Day Health Centers, St. Anthony’s Clothing Program and delivering meals to homebound seniors. After the meal, we will gather with a SAF staff member to reflect on the experience. Every day, the Foundation provides over 3,500 people with food, clothing, recovery help for their drug and alcohol addictions, and medical care on a daily basis. We invite AALS members to come along for this meaningful and informative service project. Bus will depart from the Taylor Street exit, Lobby level, Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
