2021 Holiday Sponsor a Family Program
Make the winter holidays brighter for children and their families! We provide you with a wish list for a family in need, and you provide gifts and/or gift cards for the family you sponsor. This is a great project to share with your family, friends, co-workers, or social club.
Family sizes range from small (1-2 person), medium-sized (3 person), or large (4-10 person). You can sponsor one or more families and we encourage sponsors to give at the level that is most comfortable for them. Once you are matched, we will provide you a wish list completed by a family in need, which will include each family member’s first name, age, and wish list items. The last name given will be fictitious in order to protect the family’s identity.
When sponsors have received their family’s wish list, it is time to start shopping! Gifts and/or gift cards may be dropped off to our office located at 303 Hegenberger Road, Suite 400 in Oakland, CA 94621, weekdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This year we are asking that alldonations be received byDecember 10, 2021. This will allow families to receive their gifts or shop for their wish list items prior to their winter holiday celebration. Gift cards for stores like Target, Walmart, or Safeway are especially useful to our families in need of basic amenities. BART or Muni passes are also wonderful ways to help. Public transit passes of any denomination are also accepted.
We will distribute gifts and gift cards to those most in need during the holidays - they are the easiest way for you to have an immediate, direct impact.
If you would like to sponsor a family, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 510-290-2208.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
