February is just around the corner, and with it the Safe Car Park program will be back at
CGS. Help is needed to welcome the guests to our church site. For those unfamiliar
with the program, CGS is a member of the Silicon Valley Safe Car Park network. We
participate in hosting single adults and families sleeping in their vehicles to have a safe
place to stay.
Our church community has been very welcoming to Safe Car Park guests. Planning for
the February visit is in full swing. Volunteers are needed for evening check-in (6:30
p.m.) and morning check-out (7:30 a.m.). We host a community meal on Tuesday nights
during the month. Please use the sign-up sheet if you would like to prepare one of those
meals. Donations of restaurant/grocery gift cards and gasoline gift cards are also
always needed. In addition, donations of non-perishable snacks will be gladly accepted.
(Please, all snacks individually wrapped.) We have set up an Amazon wish list link, to
make it easy for you to donate and have it delivered to the church.
The current link for instructions and volunteers to sign-up is below:

We look forward to welcoming Safe Car Park guests to CGS, and providing them a
warm and welcoming place. Please feel free to contact anyone on the team if you have
