    We Need Your Help! — 2013 Holiday Program

    WHAT IS THE HOLIDAY FOOD AND TOY BASKET PROGRAM?

    For over 43 years, Davis Street Family Resource Center– in collaboration with the Alameda County Fire Department, local schools, clubs, faith-based groups, and businesses–has provided food baskets complete with fresh poultry and seasonal canned goods and new toys for children to thousands of needy families throughout San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland, and Castro Valley.

    Our holiday sign-up process can be a heartbreaking reminder of the local need. For most of our families the holidays are a time of heightened economic pressure. Your commitment to providing a “hand up” to our clients is an investment in their journey.

    This year Davis Street will again serve 1,000 of income-eligible families, registered to receive holiday assistance. We ask for your help in ensuring that our families have something to celebrate over this holiday.

    WHAT DONATIONS DOES DAVIS STREET NEED?

    We are seeking the following donations between now and December 21st.

    • Non-perishable food i.e. canned vegetables and fruit, boxed stuffing, pastas, canned proteins such as tuna and peanut butter, rice, beans and more
    • Frozen turkeys 10-12 lbs (to be dropped off at our food warehouse freezers)
    • New toys for children and youth ages infant to 12 years old. All gifts must be unwrapped and non-violent please.
    • Gift certificates for older children 12+  (suggested $20 increment)
    • Cash contributions that specify the funds are to be used to purchase food and toys
    All items may be dropped off Monday- Friday 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM at our front desk or food pantry on 3081 Teagarden Street, San Leandro, CA 94577.

    Many local food and toy drives for Davis Street make our program possible!
