HELP MAKE THE HOLIDAYS BRIGHTER
with a generous gift
There is no good time to be homeless. But the holiday season can be especially difficult for those who will spend it with their children in a shelter, or who have endured violent relationships, or who may never have known a joyous holiday season surrounded by loved ones.
Last year, 109 mothers and 148 children lived at our San Leandro Shelter, Sister Me Home Safe House, or Midway Shelter. 900 more were served at Bessie Coleman Court, San Leandro Winter Warming Shelter, Domestic Violence Outreach and Intervention services, and Housing Assistance program. We worked hard to help them build better lives—and so did they.
Right now, Building Futures is undertaking our annual Holiday Gift Drive. You can view our holiday wish list here or at the right of this article. You can also make a monetary gift, by clicking here or sending to Building Futures, 1395 Bancroft Avenue, San Leandro, CA 94577.
Over the years, our community has stepped forward with love and compassion to donate items and funding to help individuals and families in crisis to build better futures. We are grateful, and so are the children and adults who will benefit from your generosity. In all, we plan to provide wrapped collections of gifts to 300 people!
“Building Futures believes holiday joy is even sweeter when it is shared,” says Program Director Sabrina Thomas. “We’re counting on our community to help make the holidays brighter for those who are struggling.”
