Low-income families in San Jose meet on Sundays at various elementary schools in San Jose to contribute to their community while earning tickets to buy their basic necessities. One of our stores is open for them to shop from 4:00-7:00 on weekdays and Sundays. Volunteers ages 14 and above can team up with different family members to help them shop for their basic necessities and stay within their budget.
