Survival Sack Ministry
Holy Spirit Parish staffs and manages the Survival Sack Program at Sacred Heart Community Center. We gather on the first and third Thursdays of the month from 8:30 am to 10:45 am to distribute Survival Sacks to those who are registered as homeless and living on the streets of San Jose. Homeless clients may pick up a backpack once every three months. The backpacks contain a small blanket, socks, underwear, a large hygiene kit, gloves, hat, toilet paper and a water bottle. Tarps donated by Holy Spirit Parish (Turkeys and Tarps Drive) are also available.
If you are over the age 18 and are interested in volunteering in this ministry, please click here to register for Jan. 4th and here for Jan. 18th. If you want more information, please contact Tom Burgei or Patty O’Neil
Join us for an evening of reflection, music and prayer on Dec. 11th at 7pm. Diana Macalintal will facilitate the evening.
