Shoebox Saturday

shoebox sunday 310x200 image

December 16, 2017

11:00am – 12:30pm

Location: 550 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa, CA 95401


SOMA is blessed to participate in "Comfort of Hope" Homeless Outreach's 9th annual banquet along with "Angel's" Christmas shoe-box gifts.

This all started with Angel asking Gloria, "Mom can we make shoe-boxes for presents to the homeless?" What started as her idea has blossomed into over 2,000 gifts made over the years.

We need your help to make this day special by making a few boxes for men or women. Here is an idea list for the box:

soap/small towel
razor/shaving cream
nail clippers/polish for the women.
hand sanitizer
granola bar/nuts/candy
gift card to a local eatery
A note of encouragement

If you have kids, filling a shoe box is a great way to teach them to give to others.

Please drop boxes off at church in November. This may be the only gift someone homeless on the street might receive so let's show Jesus love in a practical way.

We also need help with food and volunteers the day of the event. Sign up to bring macaroni salad, big pot of chili, green salad, 9x13 cornbread, or dessert. If you can bring something or help the day of the event please RSVP on Facebook or email us at info (at) somachurch (dot) us.
