Area Nonprofits Receive Grants from Holiday Parking Fund

Post Date:12/14/2018 3:30 PM

In November, the City Council approved its annual holiday parking waiver at on-street parking meters in Sausalito. While parking is free at all on-street meters during the month of December, residents and visitors are encouraged to keep paying for their parking. Every year, on-street meter revenue collected in December goes into the City's holiday parking donation fund

At its meeting on December 11, the City Council awarded this year's grants from the holiday parking fund. The grants totaled $5,000 and went to non-profit organizations that provide services to Marin County's neediest residents. The following nonprofits received 2018 grants:
  • Homeward Bound of Marin: Homeward Bound is the primary homeless shelter and services provider for homeless families and individuals in Marin ($1,400 grant)
  • Ritter Center: San Rafael's Ritter Center seeks to transition people into housing, improve their physical and mental health, provide substance use treatment, and improve the day-to-day living conditions of homeless individuals ($1,400 grant)
  • MarinLink - Project Warm Wishes: Once a year, volunteers from Project Warm Wishes distribute 5,000 backpacks stuffed with warm clothing and rain ponchos to homeless men, women, and children living on Bay Area streets ($1,400 grant)
  • Sausalito Presbyterian Church: Since October 1995, volunteers from the church have served a weekly hot lunch for anyone who is hungry ($400 grant)
  • Open Door Ministries, Inc.: The Open Door provides hot meals and a sympathetic ear to disabled, homeless, or otherwise disadvantaged citizens and families ($400 grant)
Any questions about the annual holiday parking waiver or grants from the holiday parking fund may be directed to Lieutenant Stacie Gregory at or (415) 289-4170.
