February 2021 Press Release

Warm Wishes Event – December-January 2022-23-Our 28th Year!

Warm Wishes continues its mission to provide warmth to the unsheltered and street communities throughout the SF Bay Area.

Warm Wishes is gearing up for our annual streetpack distribution this year!

We are targeting the beginning of December, but the date and location have not been finalized due to supply chain issues and potential Covid outbreaks in our community.

All of the supplies: backpacks, scarves, caps, gloves, socks and facemasks have been ordered! NOW we start planning for delivery. STAY TUNED!

Volunteers will be invited to pack face masks, gloves, scarves, hats, BOMBAS socks, and rain ponchos into the backpacks. All items are manufactured under the direction of and funded by Warm Wishes.
The packs will then be distributed to social services agencies for distribution, including the Downtown Street Team, California Conservation Corp, Street Life Ministries, and the Marin County Probation Department, among others.

Warm Wishes welcomes donations to offset expenses for this important distribution to the needy among us.

Please consider a donation to this “hands ON!” worthy cause.
