The countdown to the holidays has begun, and we could use your help to make the season bright for the children and families we serve. We want to thank everyone who has supported our clients each holiday season and invite all of you to join us in making this holiday season magical for our children.
Here are some ways that you can get involved.
- Donate a Holiday Meal– Last year, we provided 900-holiday meals to families. You can drop off food at our administrative building at 1510 Mendocino Drive, Concord, or donate and we will do the shopping. To learn about what items we need, visit this page.
- Sponsor Thanksgiving & Christmas Dinner at the Nursery– We provide Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to the children and staff who are in the Nursery on the holidays. A donation to our holiday fund will help us feed the children staying with us.
- Adopt-A-Family– Do you like to shop for the holidays? You can adopt-a-family for the holidays! We will provide you with our children’s and parents’ holiday wish lists. You do the shopping, drop off the gifts, and know that you’ve made the holiday magical. To learn more, email our staff.
- Holiday Toy Drive– While many of our donors love shopping for our youngest children, we support clients who have aged out of our services and older siblings of our children at the Nursery. We are always looking for presents for older children. Here is our Amazon wish list where you can send a gift or two directly to the Nursery. Also feel free to shop on your own and deliver the present to 1510 Mendocino Drive, Concord during regular business hours on the weekdays.
- Make a Monetary Donation– All donations to our Holiday Fund are used to purchase meals, gifts, wrapping paper, and gift certificates during the holidays. You can donate to our Holiday Fund here.
- Shop our Wish List– We’ve compiled all our Nursery needs into one Amazon Wish List. Feel free to shop the wish list or pickup locally and drop your donations off at the Nursery. We are open 24/7.
- Fundraise for the Nursery– A fun way to give back this holiday season is to hold a social media fundraiser for the Nursery or ask your family and friends to donate in lieu of presents. For some inspirational ideas, visit this page.
