Holiday Donations 2020

Several of our partner organizations have had extraordinary requests for their resources this year and have responded quickly to new ways of operating. They will have holiday drives, although some of them have had to forgo normal celebrations. The Social Justice Ministry urges you to consider donating to one or more of these Holiday drives and we will contribute to all of them.

The Day Worker Center of Mountain View

https://www.dayworkercentermv.org/donate
113 Escuela Avenue, Mountain View, CA, 94040

For the holidays, the DWC will give out gift cards to La Plaza (grocery store) and Target, and will do a very limited, socially-distanced distribution of toys to children. You can donate online through their website, but they prefer checks with “Gift Cards” in the memo line.

LifeMoves Opportunity Center

https://www.lifemoves.org
Drop off donations at the OC at 33 Encina Avenue, Palo Alto
Make checks out to LiveMoves and mail to: Opportunity Center, P.0.Box 213, Palo Alto, CA  94301. Write “Attn: Philip Dah” on the envelope and “OC Holiday Drive” in the memo line

This year the OC will be holding a holiday shopping event for their homeless clients. They ask for new, unwrapped gifts, or gift cards. You can also donate money for them to buy the items. They ask for donations by Friday, December 11. Here is a list of their Most Needed Items:

  • Sleeping bags, sleeping mats, blankets, backpacks, umbrellas, rain ponchos
  • Underwear and socks for men or women
  • Warm coats or heavy hoodies (adult sizes)
  • Gift Cards for gas (for a car), Walmart, or meals (e.g., McDonald’s, Starbucks, Safeway)

2411 Pulgas Ave, East Palo Alto, CA, 94303

This holiday season EHP will give out gift cards at their drive-through food closet. They prefer donations by December 4. Put “Christmas” in the memo line of a check. Electronic gift cards can be sent to: lakesha@ehpcares.org

Puente de la Costa Sur

Puente is conducting their annual drives for warm clothing for farm workers and gift cards for families. You can send a check or donate online through: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/puenteholiday2020

In either case, you can specify “Winter Items” or “Holiday Drive.”
