We understand the many ways to serve below can be overwhelming. If you want to connect with one of our Outreach leaders to better understand where to start, please email Lynn Lee Law at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the climate of San Francisco changing every day and even every hour due to COVID-19, please see below for updated information on how our Outreach ministries are responding and living out the heart of each of their ministries as well as opportunities to be involved.
Even though we currently cannot meet for our Wednesday Ice Cream Socials, we are coordinating with the administrative team to drop off cookies and personal notes to the residents at NDS and love on them the best we can at this time.
We believe in the power of prayer and the prayer of faith as written in James 5. We are still virtually meeting with CGs and those on our NDS list serv signed up to serve for our Saturday Dinner Service. In these meetings, we will be sharing more about shifting from a ministry of provision to a ministry of reconciliation with our residents and friends at Next Door Shelter. We believe prayer IS the greater work so we will be spending time praying for the residents and staff at NDS.
If you are interested in learning more and want to pray with our NDS leaders, please email email@example.com.
Little Brothers is asking for volunteers who can assist a homebound elder with his/her grocery runs! You must not have had any cold symptoms, fever, or have been around anyone who has been sick. If you are interested in volunteering and want to pray for the elderly in our community, please email Shawn Yoon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because of the shelter in place order, we are no longer meeting with our foster families in person. Instead, we are calling them to check in, pray with them, and order meals to their households at this time. If you are interested in learning more about our foster care ministry, please email Davy Xu at email@example.com.
One of Foster the Bay's partners is asking for volunteers who can read a book, play a virtual game, or provide schoolwork assistance to virtually support its foster families for 30 minutes a week! If you are interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instead of our Sunday door-to-door ministry, we have been calling to check in on our friends we have made throughout the past few years.
As a team on Sunday mornings, we are virtually praying for our neighborhood the Fillmore, our friends in the Fillmore, and preparing for the months to come after the health crisis is over.
If you are interested in learning more about our Heart for Fillmore ministry, please email Danny Tong at email@example.com.
Please join us in prayer as we check in and pray for our community based partners and local business partners. Please pray for all the local businesses in San Francisco!
SF Marin Food Bank is serving our city’s most vulnerable people, children, seniors, homebound adults with disabilities, and families struggling during this time. If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to Lynn Lee Law at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer at one of the local pop up pantries in the Fillmore!
Meals on Wheels need emergency volunteer drivers to help deliver meals to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities. If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to Steven Yuan at email@example.com who will organize efforts to volunteer at Meals on Wheels.
We are in continuous contact with our partner SF City Impact. For the safety of the community, City Impact is currently not asking for volunteers at their food bank at this time. Instead, they need help collecting items such as produce, dry goods, pasta, potatoes, coffee, bread, protein, soap, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, tissue, paper towels, and napkins and dropping these items off at 140 Turk from 10AM - 2PM. Please continue to pray for City Impact’s staff, volunteers, and those they serve.
If you haven’t already, please check in on your neighbors while practicing social distancing! This act of kindness goes a long way!
Another way to care for your neighbors would be to sign up for NextDoor in your neighborhood and offer to get groceries for someone that is unable to do so during this time.
As noted by our NDS leaders, prayer IS the greater work so when you go on your daily walks, spend time with the Lord and prayer walk in the community that you live in, loving on your neighbors by praying for them.
We would like to challenge everyone to post up thank you notes or say thank you to all our essential workers including your mailman, delivery partners, grocery store workers, and more that you might still see on a regular basis.
We are currently working with our Fillmore partner churches Glad Tidings SF, Full Gospel, and Revive SF to discuss and pray through how we might love on our community together. As some of our partner churches serve at-risk groups and single parents, we are currently brainstorming ways to support these individuals with conversations, prayer, and grocery store or pharmacy runs if possible. If you are interested in this, please contact Lynn Lee Law at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have the means during this time, we encourage our members to donate to any of the organizations listed above at this time as these essential organizations operate on the ground to love our city.
In addition to the above ways to serve, Radiance is continuously looking for opportunities to assist local community-based organizations and businesses so please consider donating through our Give page.
For safety precautions when volunteering in person for any of the above needs, please refer to this page.
This page will continuously be updated as opportunities arise and updates are available! If you have any general questions, comments, or concerns, please email Lynn Lee Law at email@example.com.
