February 2021 Press Release

Warm Wishes Event – December-January 2022-23-Our 29th 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!

Assembly day is December 3rd at the Northgate Mall. Volunteers are invited to join us by APPOINTMENT ONLY-due to social distancing. Masks may be required.

All of the supplies: backpacks, scarves, caps, gloves, socks and facemasks and rain ponchos have been ordered and are on their way to Marin.

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, Street Life Ministries, and the Marin County Probation Department, among others.

Warm Wishes Holiday Card Project:

We like to include a holiday card in our streetpacks. These cards mean A Lot to the recipient! Many people treasure the card all year!

  1. Please create 1 or more cards by drawing a holiday picture using your choice of paper. Fold in half or make a card-be creative!
  2. Use crayons, colored pencils, markers, stickers etc. Be sure not to use glitter or anything glued that might come off in the backpack.
  3. Please sign it “Warm Wishes”, (first name only) Ex. “Billy”

We would like to receive the cards by Nov 30th-we can pick up or you can deliver to our office in Northgate.

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.
