December News

Community Christmas - Spreading the Cheer!

We never miss a Saturday meal, which means we will be celebrating a special Christmas Day meal together! Join us on Saturday, December 25th, and make sure to wear your cheeriest holiday garb! Bring your jingle-bells! Masked-caroling is encouraged! Cozy up with some free hot cocoa too.

Sign up for a Christmas Day volunteer shift soon. Spots are limited!

This year, we are making December 25th extra special by giving out Christmas gifts to all our neighbors. Do you have something you'd like to contribute? You can drop off your community gift at Stone Soup Café on any upcoming Friday or Saturday and we will give them out on Christmas Day. (Please do not wrap the gift, so folks can actually see what the item is!)

Ideas for community gifts ~

  • Socks; Adult & Kids sizes
  • Gloves; Adult & Kids sizes
  • Hats, Scarves
  • Hand Warmers
  • Can Openers
  • Blankets / Sleeping Bags
  • Personal Care Items (toothpaste, deodorant, menstrual products, soap)

Thanks for making this upcoming Christmas extra special.

New Book Group: How to Be an Antiracist

Start 2022 off on the right foot by joining Stone Soup Café's antiracism book group!

The last book we read together was "Me and White Supremacy" by Layla Saad (if you missed that book and you're interested in reading it, you can still join an accountability group starting in January here).

The next book that we will be reading together starting in mid-January is "How to Be an Antiracist" by Ibram X Kendi.
