Together over the years, we have provided support and comfort to those in need:

  • Distributed 1,000,000+ warm items to the less fortunate
  • Served 200,000+ people and 100+ human services agencies
  • Covered Bay Area counties and beyond
  • Engaged thousands of volunteers

Warm Wishes returns to fulfill its mission on January 23, 2021

This year, Warm Wishes will distribute 2,500 “StreetPacks” or backpacks, stuffed with warm gloves, scarves, hats, wool socks, and rain ponchos to homeless men and women living on Bay Area streets. Warm Wishes is grateful for generous funding from the Rotary Club of Tiburon Sunset and other sponsors, as well as for our enthusiastic community of volunteers, all of whom make this smaller, leaner StreetPack distribution possible. The packs will be distributed by homeless services agencies throughout Marin County and beyond.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and to minimize exposure, on-site volunteers for our January 2021 event will be by invitation only. No children will be allowed on-site. We are sorry that we cannot convene as in past years but please know that we are grateful for all past support on assembly days for over 25 years!
