Submitted By Monica Dominguez
The holiday season is a time of reflection to count personal and family blessings and to share the love we have received during the year with others. Some, in our community, live economically on the edge of crisis just struggling to maintain the barest of necessities for themselves and their families. Help those served by the Fremont Human Services Department by being part of Giving Hope, a program that aids needy families, children, and frail isolated seniors by bringing them holiday cheer.
Last year Giving Hope raised more than $60,000 in gift items and contributions, helping 688 family members and seniors during the holidays. Donations and holiday gifts will be accepted until Thursday, December 12th for the holiday fundraiser and all year for the Giving Hope Program. Each sponsor will receive a thank you letter for tax purposes.
The Giving Hope Fund provides social workers, nurses, and counselors with resources they can draw upon to assist families and individuals in crisis throughout the year. Bring cheer and help to families and seniors in need by donating cash, gift cards, or personalized gifts selected from the participantÕs wish list.
For more information on how to participate please contact Monica Dominguez at (510) 574-2057 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Online donations at: www.fremont.gov/hsdonate.
