Give

At All Souls', we work hard to help others in our community, from collecting food for those in need to offering shelter to homeless individuals. We want to thank everyone who generously gives to support these efforts. Your kindness really makes a big difference in the lives of those we help, and we appreciate your continued support.

How We Give Back in the Community

Giving back is central to our values, and we are passionate about making a positive impact. We believe a personal invitation can inspire active participation. Here are some of the wonderful ways we contribute to our community.

Military

All Souls’ has a long history of supporting members of the Armed Forces and their families. We are recognized as a Veteran Military Friendly Congregation (VMFC) in San Diego County, providing a welcoming environment for military families. We host a barbecue lunch to celebrate Kilo Company’s drill sergeant training graduation at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD), allowing service members and their families to relax and share stories. We feel privileged to support these outstanding Marines.

Homelessness

All Souls’ is located near Ocean Beach and the Midway District, where homelessness is a significant issue in San Diego. Inspired by Matthew 25:40, we have several ways we help: Blessings in a Bag provides immediate essentials; Showers of Blessings offers monthly mobile showers at the Episcopal Church Center; and we participate in the Interfaith Shelter rotation with St. Peter’s-by-the-Sea Lutheran Church. These efforts directly support homeless individuals. Additionally, All Souls’ supports St. Paul’s Senior Housing, providing stable housing for older, at-risk individuals formerly experiencing homelessness.

Loaves & Fishes

We are dedicated to helping more families and our unhoused neighbors. However, the costs at the San Diego Food Bank have gone up. Donating non-perishable foods to the non-profit organization Loaves & Fishes is now more important than ever. Your generosity helps us support as many people as possible during these tough times. Please consider donating food weekly at our collection point in the church narthex.

As an Episcopal church, we support fellow Episcopal congregations, including Saint Mark's City Heights Episcopal Church. Their efforts include a Back to School Bash, providing backpacks and school supplies for children in need. They also maintain a food pantry for the City Heights neighborhood.

Villa Musica

The arts are integral to All Souls'. Music fosters self-expression, creativity, and community. That's why we partner with Villa Musica, which makes music accessible through education, performance, and community engagement.

Blessings in a Bag

Following each service, everyone is invited to take a "Blessings in a Bag" to give to unsheltered individuals they encounter in the city. This helps parishioners to give immediate help to those living on the streets. Each bag contains essential items such as a flashlight, snacks, water, cash, and hygiene products.

Colegio Esperanza

We raise funds to help different causes near us, across the country, and around the world. One of the things we do is help students at Colegio Esperanza in Tijuana. Every December, we wrap and give Christmas presents to these students, bringing joy and support during the holiday season.
