Greetings from the Drop-in Center,
Thank you for the wonderful donations that helped us feed our 265 homeless friends and families struggling to make ends meet this Christmas.
We were able to give out a delicious Christmas meal with turkey, ham and plenty of trimmings. Our friends were given hygiene kits and other Christmas treats donated by UPLIFT Charity and so many big-hearted people. The best part of the day was passing along toys donated by our annual Santa, Jorge Pantoja, who along with a busy elf wrapped and picked the perfect toys for our kids. Please enjoy the pictures we were able to take of our donors and happy kids. Happy New Year!! See you in 2022!
Update from our Housing Specialist Celia Guerrero:
This week was all about making sure our families with children and our seniors had a warm place to stay and a hot Christmas meal. The boxes had turkey stuffing, vegetables, gravy, cranberry, rolls and of course a holiday pie to top off the meal. Thank you to our donors at Food Finders, UPLIFT Charity, Jorge Pantoja, the office of Janice Hahn, and of course Kevin and Katrina.
