If you ever doubt the innate goodness of mankind, visit the annual Christmas Party for the Homeless. You will not only witness unprecedented human warmth and generosity, but you will also discover that the SLO community is unquestionably like no other. This year, each of our guests received a decadent meal, music/dancing entertainment and care packages with new winter jackets, sweatshirts, sleeping bags and more.
Tremendous thanks go to: the Odd Fellows, United Way of SLO, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, SLO Camp-n-Pack, Congregation Beth David, Temples Ner Shalom and Ohr Tzafon, JCC of SLO, Mountainbrook Church, Roman Bukachevsky, William Miller, Talley Farms, San Luis Sourdough, Doc Burnstein’s, U-Haul, PG&E, Ride-On, San Luis Garbage, Apple Farm Inn, Marie Callender’s and our fabulous musicians: Billy and Charlie Foppiano, Fran-kie Parades, Jerome Taylor and Paul Rinzler.
We are also grateful to the nearly 100 volunteers who brought us home-cooked food and worked tirelessly throughout the day and the numerous altruistic members of the SLO community who give selflessly year after year in order to make life a little easier for those less fortunate.
