1. Sit Down Thanksgiving Dinners: This team will host a Thanksgiving Dinner indoors for those who come in off the street. They will be greeted with volunteers and have an experience of a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. This is a very intimate experience with those who live in the area, mostly those without homes.

2. Kitchen: Those who sign up for KITCHEN will prepare all the food for 7,000 meals. Over 3000 lbs. of turkey (turkey and turkey breast) will come through this kitchen. Activities include: Deboning turkey, and cooking mashed potatoes, cooking, slicing and chopping vegetables. Any level of experience is welcome. This job requires volunteers to move quick, work well with others, and is the first team to get started for the day. This team will most likely miss the day's orientation and volunteer briefing.

3. Security: This team will help with crowd control. During large events, it's nice to have help with keeping the volunteers and residents calm and organized as there is an order to the day. SFCI prides itself in making sure the community gets blessed on this day and needs security to make sure this happens smoothly. We need strong, orderly, yet kind volunteers for this job.

4. Groceries: This group will prepare and pass out over 500 bags of groceries to those who attend our block party. 

5. Registration/Greeters: This team helps greet those standing in line to receive groceries and meals. We would like volunteers who are outgoing and like to meet new people. This is a great time to get to know the people in the lines and spend time chatting with them to make the time go by faster as they wait.

6. Community Host/Ushers: This team will be the group who will host and usher our community guest into our block party. We have a 15 minute service to introduce SFCI and celebrate and encourage them as they come in.

7. Get Connected:  A designated group of people who will meet all the residents and help them by offering them prayer and referrals to places they might need.

8. Meal Prep: This will be held in two locations. Each location is half a block away from each other. This whole event is based on getting hot Thanksgiving Dinners to 7,000 people who have signed up in advance for these meals. The meal delivery job is an assembly line formation and there is always a lot of energy in this team. If you are planning on bringing kids, this is a fun place for them to help and there is usually more space for them to roam in case they get a little bored.  

Location 1 - 230 Jones Street:  is located on Jones Street the main campus of SF City Impact between Eddy St and Turk Street. The meal prep area can accommodate up to 50 people

Location 2 - 302 Eddy Street: is located on Eddy Street.

9. Meal Delivery: These groups hand deliver all the prepared food to the people. All deliveries are done by foot. Vehicles are not necessary; however, if there are few people that would like to drive, please let your leader know on that day. They will arrange for your group to take the meals that are furthest away. Families and those who don't want to be confined to one area love this task. All meals are carried in banana boxes to the assigned buildings.

Often times, it might seem as if you're waiting around, however, this is the nature of the job. ALL the Meal Prep teams are doing their best to pump out the meals. So please be patient. This job is vital to getting the job done!

10. Special Ops: This group will help flip our thrift store around! Activities include organizing and categorizing donations, cleaning, and moving furniture.

11. Mobile Medical Team: This team is specific to those who have medical experience. They will be on-call during the outreach and doing house-calls to residents in the Tenderloin who need urgent care and assessment. If interested in being on this medical team, please register for this job and we will have one of our Health and Wellness Cinic staff members contact you about the details of this event. 

12. Clothing Tent: This team will organize and distribute free clothing to those who attend the Thanksgiving Day gathering on the street. This gift of clothing is so well-received by Tenderloin residents and homeless. You'll get to personally connect with residents and assist them in picking out quality clothing. 

13. Building Parties {select which party (1-5) you'd like to participate in on the registration page} Join this team to help throw building parties in the Apartment buildings. There is something powerful in being a good listener and neighbor in the Tenderloin. Sometimes we don’t need to offer an “outreach” to the building as much as we need to offer “life and celebration” in the buildings. Here is our chance to get alongside our neighbors, bbq, eat, hangout, play games, and get to know some of our neighbors in the TL.

14. Translation Team: This team will assist in translating for the non-English people we will be serving at our block party. Each year, may Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish, and Vietnamese-speaking individuals come to receive our services so volunteers who can speak these languages in order to welcome, give directions, and make announcements are needed.

We hope you have a great time and let's make this a holiday that the

 Tenderloin  Community won't ever forget!
