4 Simple Ways to Give to Underprivileged Children and their Families this Holiday Season

There are many ways in which a small action can make a big impact on underprivileged children and their families in Berkeley this holiday season. Here are 4 of the ways in which my family and I have decided to give back- we hope that you'll join us!
  • Donate a new toy to a child who would otherwise not receive a gift this holiday. Drop your new, unwrapped toy off at any police of fire station in Berkeley and they'll deliver the gift for you. The address for the main station in Berkeley is 2100 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, Berkeley, and there is a Toys for Tots bin in front. 
  • Donate new baby and children's clothes and toys to children at Children's Hospital in Oakland
      • To donate toys and children's clothes, you can drop them off at the welcome desk at 747 52nd Street, Oakland 
         
    • Safeway stores Safeway stores are making giving easy this year with a bag pre-packed with some of our most in-demand items for just $10.


  • Donate new adult men's tube socks to homeless men and women in the area- until December 31, 2012. This is being organized by EveryOne Home of Alameda County.
    • Berkeley Food & Housing Project's North County Women's Center
