During our school closure on Veterans' Day, all Utopia preschool staff and STM staff participated in a service day at St. Vincent de Paul's Multi-Service Center (MSC). The MSC shelter provides a safe place to sleep for some of San Francisco's homeless population as well as meals, medical, employment, education, mental health and housing assistance; a library and computer lab; free weekly haircuts; as well as shower and laundry facilities.
The preschool staff cleaned the beds and mattresses in two different dorms, helped to clean the lobby area, and worked on Thanksgiving art displays in the cafeteria. Supporting St. Vincent de Paul was a powerful team building activity and gave the staff an opportunity to serve some of the homeless population in San Francisco. Please connect with the staff if you are interested in finding out more about St. Vincent de Paul's MSC and how you and your family can help!
