Summer SunDay Hike for Homeless Youth: Summer SunDay is an annual, half-day hike up beautiful Mount Tamalpais in Marin County. It's a fun event featuring good company, a gourmet post-hike picnic, and beautiful views, plus it raises much-needed money for At The Crossroads! To check out the event, visit our Summer SunDay website. In 2016, we raised over $125,000 for homeless youth in San Francisco!
Volunteer: ATC could not operate without the help of hundreds of volunteers; we would like you to become one of them! We are looking for volunteers who are enthusiastic, consistent, and want to use their time to make a difference in their community. From assembling candy packs for nighttime street outreach to organizing our in-kind donations, volunteers play a huge role in helping ATC carry out our mission of serving San Francisco's most disconnected homeless youth.
Find out if your workplace gives money to non-profits. Corporations give away billions of dollars each year to nonprofit organizations; is yours one of them? If so, find out whether or not your workplace would consider making a grant or donation to At The Crossroads. If the answer is yes, please let us know if there are any steps we can take to facilitate this process.
See if your workplace does matching gifts. Many workplaces will match employee donations up to a certain amount. If you plan to make a donation, find out whether your company provides matching donations.
Join our mailing list to learn more about ATC! Twice a year, ATC writes a newsletter about a theme or topic that is important to our work and to our clients. It's a great way to learn more about our organization, get a deeper look into the lives of our youth, and gain a better understanding of homelessness in San Francisco. To sign up, email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your mailing address.
See if your company will donate in-kind products or services to ATC. ATC depends on a wide variety of in-kind donations to keep our organization running and our clients happy. This includes new or very gently used clothing of all sizes, shoes, messenger bags, backpacks, full-sized and travel-sized hygiene items, food, and more. If you have a connection to a business or manufacturer that may be able to donate any of these items, email email@example.com to let us know!
Start an I Think I Can Campaign: The I Think I Can (ITIC) Campaign is ATC's annual volunteer fundraising campaign.

Participants choose any goal and raise money by getting friends and family to sponsor them with donations to ATC.
