Holiday Giving Program

The Holiday Program pairs sponsors like you with families in need.  The sponsor purchases gift cards from specific grocery and retail stores, which we pass on to our client families.  Your donation of cash or gift cards enables clients to make purchases for their families they would not have otherwise been able to, empowering each family to create special holiday memories to cherish.


Did you know that many of our clients have never been allowed to:

  • Plan their own holiday celebration?
  • Choose gifts for their children?
  • Decide what to serve at their holiday meal?

We offer holiday assistance to our clients for Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas or Kwanzaa.

Our Holiday Program provides a family with the following:

Thanksgiving: $50 grocery card from Safeway or Lucky’s/SaveMart.

Winter Holidays: $50 grocery card from Safeway or Lucky’s/SaveMart and one $25 retail gift card, per member of the family, from a store such as Target or K-mart.

You may either make a cash donation to the Holiday Program or purchase gift cards in the amounts indicated above from the suggested stores. Please commit at the level you feel you are most able to give. Every gift makes the holidays brighter—for both the giver and the receiver!

Your help truly makes a difference.

If you are interested in participating as a sponsor in this year's Holiday Program, please call Herbert at
(925) 603-0149 or email
by November 18th for Thanksgiving and Chanukah and/or December 16th for other winter holidays.

Please contact us as well to learn more about adopting a family in need through our Adopt A Family Program. 

May your holidays be filled with joy and peace.
