IMC Food Drive: June 2018

IMC’s LGBTQ Sangha is sponsoring a summer food drive that benefits Second Harvest food Bank. Express your generosity and compassion by donating non-perishable foods or monetary donations at shfb.org. The collection canister is located in the back of the community hall. imcqueersangha@gmail.com





AIDS Walk San Francisco July 15th On July 15, a team of members from IMC/IRC will walk the walk. Our intention is to help relieve suffering in our community by raising funds through donations. The funds will benefit dozens of organizations working to stop new HIV infections and support people living with HIV/AIDS.


Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate directly to AIDS Walk SF.
  • Register & join our team, Insight Meditation Center Compassion Team, and help us raise funds. Walk with us in person or as a virtual walker.
  • Register here for our team #1065: https://sf.aidswalk.net/Account/Register
