Golden Gate Bridge | Battery Cranston Rd, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The Bridgewatch Angels will dedicate Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2019, to saving lives on the Golden Gate Bridge. We are seeking compassionate volunteers to greet everyone with smiles while bringing hope to those feeling depressed and suicidal. Our primary focus will be to engage individuals on the bridge who are walking alone, displaying negative body posture, or lingering mid-span.
The Golden Gate Bridge remains the number one suicide destination in the world. There were 28 confirmed suicides during Jan-Oct 2019 and 140 people came to the bridge to end their lives but were stopped by the CHP, Bridge District Police, and the Bridgewatch Angels volunteers.
Thanksgiving Day Bridgewatch will be from 10am to 2pm. You must register on the Eventbrite link and include your email address so we can communicate important logistical information with you concerning meeting location, times, parking, ride share options, and what to bring with you. We will also send you training information.
Volunteers should arrive to the Bridge Cafe (San Francisco Welcome Center) no later than 9:30am. A mandatory orientation will begin promptly at 10am so we ask you to arrive 30 minutes early to park and use the facilities/purchase snacks. The Bridgewatch Angels Trainers will greet you and provide you with the materials you will need.
Due to the nature of the work and safety precautions, volunteers MUST be at least 18 years of age. Only ADA certified therapy dogs, with documentation, are allowed on the bridge
We would be very appreciative if you would share our Thanksgiving Day 2019 Bridgewatch Thanksgiving 2019 event on your social media and tell your family and friends. We love newcomers!
