It is wonderful, of course, to make a special bequeath in your Will and/or Trust to a charity of your choice or to leave a charity’s name as a beneficiary designation on a retirement plan or a life insurance plan.  Here’s an idea that can be immediately effectuated in any way you choose.  Although this feeding of the homeless is associated with St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Fremont, California, it’s an idea that could work in any number of ways with any charity or service project.

Here is a photo of lunch bags my kids and I made and then filled with sandwiches, apple sauce, granola bars, chips & drinks for Sacred Space.

“Sacred Space” is a growing activist group in both Oakland and Hayward to help feed the hungry after a brief Sunday service at parks in both places.

The once a month that our church participates in Sacred Space, the bags are decorated differently.  The possibilities are endless!
