Thank You for Your Generosity in Holiday 2012!

THANK YOU to all hundreds of donors and volunteers who made Davis Street’s 2012 Holiday Food Basket and Toy Program a success! Businesses, schools, faith groups, clubs, individuals– it was your help that ensured our ability to serve over 1,000 families and seniors/individuals this holiday. You were dropping off gift cards, cash donations, toys and food until the last hour. Every bit counted, truly!!! We give special thanks the Alameda County Fire Department for their collection efforts and tremendous manpower and the San Leandro Police Department for partnering with Davis Street for their Bikes For Tykes Program and assisting in all our distribution efforts. Officer Louie Brandt raised enough funds to purchase over 350 bicycles! These photos, beautifully captured (and generously donated) by WeeGiggle Photography, are true testament to a entire community making a difference. Thank you for brightening the holidays for so many! May we all continue to open our hearts in this new year to those who need a hand up! Happy 2013!

We would like to say a very special thank you to Eden Medical Center, who answered a last minute plea for toys by donating $12,500 for us to shop with. What an incredible act of kindness. Thank you, Eden!
