Attorneys Bettering the Community – Holiday Bags for the Homeless

ABC Holiday Bags for the Homeless
Thursday, December 12, 2013, 5:30-8:30pm

Classroom A, 198 McAllister Street

UC Hastings College of the Law


About the Event

On Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. at U.C. Hastings College of the Law (Room A), ABC volunteers (UC Hastings alumni and their family and friends) will get together for our 5th consecutive year to assemble and distribute holiday care packages to the homeless in the Tenderloin region of San Francisco. Each care package includes items such as a poncho, hat, gloves, scarf, fleece blanket, body lotion, chapstick, etc. Each year these care packages bring smiles to the faces of a lot of the homeless living on the street or in shelters in the immediate area.


We invite current UC Hastings students and alumni to bring their family and friends and join us! Volunteers will enjoy mulled wine, pizza and holiday cookies as we work to assemble and then distribute the care packages around the neighborhood. We are currently ordering all of the supplies for this year's event and really need donations, so please let your family, friends and employers know about this amazing opportunity to give to those in need during the holiday season! Tax-deductible donations can be made here:

About the Organization

ABC - Attorneys Bettering the Community- was started in November 2009 by five friends, all recent alumni from UC Hastings and Stanford law schools, searching for a way to connect with other attorneys while working to improve the communities in which they live. Our mission is to bring attorneys out of their offices and into their communities to assist those in need.

Our organization focuses on a wide range of community service projects and would love your suggestions. We are currently recruiting members. If you are a legal professional looking for a way to help out in your community and think you might be interested in joining our organization, send us an e-mail at so we can keep you informed about our group.

ABC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with headquarters in San Mateo County California (see our non-profit approval letter here)This means that all donations are tax deductible!
