We are working on organizing service projects for BWC members. These will be held both at our Clubhouse and other venues. More information about this is coming as soon as we get these projects confirmed. If you know of a local nonprofit or school that is looking for volunteers, please contact Emily Matthews at 650-490-0750 or send us an email.
BWC will be collecting items at the November General Meeting for the LifeMoves Family Crossroads site in Daly City.
LifeMoves is the largest provider of homeless services in San Mateo County and Silicon Valley. The agency operates 26 shelters, which give families, veterans, and singles a temporary place to call home while providing intensive, customized case management. The program has proven success and last year led over 2,000 clients to stable housing.
*You can also bring items to the November Happy Hour on Friday, November 10, 2023, or drop them in the waterproof chest by the backdoor of the clubhouse.
One Warm Coat Drive
BWC will be collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets at the October General Meeting on Thursday, October 5, 2023* as part of the One Warm Coat community service project. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome.
One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need.
*You can also bring coats to the October Happy Hour on Friday, October 13, 2023, or drop them in the waterproof chest by the backdoor of the clubhouse.
Cora (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse) Drive
CORA is the only organization within San Mateo County that provides services to victims of intimate relationship abuse/violence, all at no cost to the victims/clients. CORA will be launching CORA’s closet, a “store” set up like a retail boutique at which CORA clients can visit and select (at no cost) various household items to help them get back on their feet and feel at home. We are starting to collect items that can be used to stock the store as we need to build up inventory.
New/Unused household items (see list), including Kitchen/Dining Items, Household Items, Cleaning/Misc. Items, Pet Items, Bathroom Items, Clothing, and Toiletries.
Peninsula Family Service Drive
(This was scheduled for August, but the BWC Birthday Party was rescheduled.)
Peninsula Family Service strengthens our community by providing children, families, and older adults the support and tools to realize their full potential and lead healthy, stable lives. Peninsula Family Service is conducting a drive for the First Step Child Development Center.
