Smiles, Volunteerism & Intergenerational Connections

Elder Care Alliance’s vision of engaging hearts, transforming lives and erasing boundaries was on full display recently when AlmaVia of San Francisco elders partnered with elementary school students to help feed the hungry.

Residents spent the morning making sandwiches alongside 4th graders from St. Thomas More School, a local school guided by Catholic values and centered on spiritual, intellectual and social growth. The sandwiches were delivered to Martin de Porres House of Hospitality, a free restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch with the mission to “serve in the spirit of compassion, understanding and love.”
