The Story

The theme of this year's third Annual Holiday Fundraiser for the Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy's (MISC) weekly Wellness Gatherings is "Building Community One Meal at a Time". Since 2015 generous donors have funded over 3,100 meals that bring together people who are housed with those living on the street to share stories, prayers, and a delicious meal to eat. I began attending the Wellness Gatherings over two years ago thinking I was going to “help out.” What I didn’t realize is the degree to which this group of people would touch my heart and "help me" to see that wellness and a healthy community is nurtured through giving and receiving in diversity.

I also learned it takes many hands to build this sacred space where everyone contributes, including weekly participants, Chef Emarco and his crew, our new interim Chaplain Rev. Bentley Stewart, along with volunteers from a variety of congregations, organizations and faith traditions. Our goal is to increase the donor base to 130 supporters and to raise enough to cover next year's meals. We need you to make this goal a reality through your tax-deductible donation and help in sharing our grassroots effort via email, text, and social media (www.youcaring.com/communityfund). Thank you for your support and hope to see you at the gatherings!!

It's another holiday miracle - with only a few hours left to go we are over $9,000! Better yet a generous donor has made a pledge to match all donations that come in today up to $1,000. Since I sent out the announcement this morning six people responded by donating over $400 dollars. If there's anyone out there who can get us another $600 we'll get the grant and be over $10,000! Here's to all the generous souls who are making it possible to reach what seems like another impossible goal (for the third year in a row)!!! Happy New Year!!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!  A big thank you to everyone who has donated and shared the fundraiser with family and friends. We are close to half way to our goal with six days left to go. I know from fundraisers past that many donations come in between now and the end of year. We are are going to need a holiday miracle to reach $15K. Please pray and share. We need a place where there is room for everyone at the table - now more than ever!

We had a great kick-off party this past Tuesday! There were over 80 people at the Wellness Gathering including Pack 50 Scouts, their parents, kids from Children for Change, and folks who came in off the street. Participants donated over $1,100 that night bringing us close to $4K. Only $11K more to reach our goal! Thank you to all who donated their time setting-up, serving, cleaning up, and showing up! Also, a much belated thank you to everyone who donated beginning with our Thanksgiving Eve service, followed by Giving Tuesday. Please keep sharing  :))
