Gubbio: giving and gratitude

 The latest updates of the newsletter from Laura Slattery coordinator of the Gubbio wants to focus on these two very important words: giving and gratitude

On November 11th the Gubbio Project of San Francisco, located in the Saint Boniface Church, Tenderloin, held the third Community Jazz Brunch.
Laura said us:"There were more or less 80 people involved in the project They enjoyed to sharing the brunch and at the same lite listening live jazz music. Music was performed by local musicians".
Laura wants to thank all the volunteers and the chefs: Chuck Yenson, Maureen Kelly and Mike Cliffe. Angela Oliva made more than 100 bracelets. Zendesk Inc. underwrote the event.

At the same time last month at the Gubbio partnered with Reverend Megan Rohrer of  SF CARES and with Project Homeless Connect,  took place an event for all the guests of the structure with some vision problems. All the exams were conducted of course completely free by an optometrist and free prescription eyeglasses available in a couple of weeks for 34 guests. Vision and Health Event organized the event.

Once a month Gubbio volunteers share their breakfast moment with guests sleeping in the benches. It's a story of good food and good chats, and a moment of relaxation and understanding for both the parts.

Last Christmas (not yet discovered the project for this Christmas at the Gubbio) warm homemade cookies were served in a daily base like also warm beverages.
At the Gubbio they all know how difficult can be Christmas for people in sufferance and in particular for the once living on the streets.
For all of you living in the area of San Francisco, if you can donate dough, baked goods please e-mail emmaf@thegubbioproject.org.
