Caminar was delighted to be a recipient of Transfiguration Episcopal Church’s generous and compassionate Advent Giving program this year.
Approximately 75% of Caminar clients in San Mateo county come to us as homeless and often they have nowhere else to turn. Simple items such as clean, dry socks and rain ponchos help someone start the day on the right foot AND let them know someone cares about them and they are valued.
Over the course of December 2018, the Transfiguration community donated 123 pairs of new socks and 19 rain ponchos to Caminar for clients. And, the giving began immediately; within an hour of collecting these lovely gifts from under the tree at church, the items were brought to our medication clinic to be distributed to homeless clients ahead of first rain of the new year. Clinic staff was thrilled to be able to offer these gifts to our most needy clients and will continue to share these gifts throughout the season.
Caminar is so grateful for the opportunity to connect with Transfiguration and for the beautiful outpouring of love and care that will help our most vulnerable neighbors. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
