‘TIS THE SEASON

We have so many opportunities to spread joy to our neighbors in Redwood City! In person or from a distance, please see below for more information on how to sign up to Sponsor-A-Family.We have already matched more than 20 families with caring neighbors to receive a holiday blessing this year. Ongoing challenges and effects of the pandemic have brought even more hurdles during this season. See how you can be a part of spreading good cheer at the end of this unique year. In addition to shopping for gifts and making a financial contribution, you can also choose to provide a homemade holiday meal. Click the image below for details.

Holiday Blessings

Thank you to the generous volunteers at Menlo Church for making gift baskets to give away to families for Christmas! The baskets included ingredients for a sweet treat and Mexican hot chocolate, plus books for the kids! We love partnering with Serve Your City!

Students are able to have academic support while doing their distance learning at AECs. Volunteers and staff are there to provide guidance and additional help.
We are still in need of volunteers to help at our AEC at Connect Community Charter School (635 Oakside Ave., Redwood City). Can you come at one of the times listed below(1 hour blocks)?
  • Mon/Thurs 4-5pm
  • Friday between 1-4

“It’s very clear that there are so many needs in our community. My family and I desire to have a part in meeting some of those needs in a way that makes sense. Sharing our Thanksgiving meal traditions with a family was just a small way we could meet one of those needs. We wanted to partner with Generations United to support the multi-faceted way Angie and her team are caring for those most vulnerable among us. It was our joy to serve in that way and we welcome any future partnership with GU in whatever ways our community needs.”
– Anne Gaddini, volunteer
