Thank you to the many people who have supported our Holiday Sharing Program in the past. This year’s annual holiday food and toy distribution event is coming up pretty quickly – on Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16.

A long-time tradition here at CSA, the popular event is for Mountain View/Los Altos area families who meet CSA’s eligibility requirements and register for client services by December 10th.

This year we are partnering with Hope’s Corner – the hot breakfast program on Saturdays at Trinity United Methodist Church – to offer children’s activities. While parents “shop” for toys, gift cards and holiday groceries at CSA, their children can enjoy cookies, crafts and a visit with Santa at Hope’s Corner. For those families who are uncomfortable signing up for CSA services, a small supply of toys will be available at Hope’s Corner.

Here are ways that you can help:

* Refer families who might benefit from CSA’s food pantry and/or emergency financial assistance program. They can contact us at (650) 968-0836, ext. 100, to schedule an appointment.
* Volunteer that weekend! Please call LaDrea Clark at (650) 964-4630 or email her at [email protected] to schedule your shift.

* Donate to the cause! Please note that we are asking for gift cards ($25 denominations) so families have more gift options (especially for their older children) and to help underwrite groceries for the additional families expected this year. Since we have over 100 boxes of toys from last year and limited storage, gift cards are especially welcome. If you would prefer to make a financial gift to help us purchase gift cards, please click here to do so.
