@raphaelhousesf The @kcbsradio team donated dozens of rain boots and umbrellas to protect families staying in our #ResidentialShelter from the rainy weather. 🌧 - Every day, families staying at Raphael House of San Francisco run errands, take their kids to school, and attend job interviews, so this rain gear will help them stay dry as they work to achieve their housing and financial goals. - Thank you to @liammayclem (aka the KCBS #FoodieChap) and the KCBS team for stopping by to drop off this generous donation! 🙏 - In this 📸: Our Events Manager Erin Reeser, Liam Mayclem, and Our Executive Director Marc Slater
