It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood

-Mr. Rogers

In a society that revels in individualism, Generations United prefers to pursue what it believes to be a higher road. We want instead to promote neighborliness, convinced that individual happiness is inseparably tied to the well-being of others. Therefore, we bring people together to co-labor for the sake of the community.

Back-to-School Backpack Drive

For many families in Redwood City, the costs associated with returning back to school can be burdensome, and some children are not able to come to class with everything they need. Generations United seeks yearly to solicit the help of many local businesses and church-groups to provide over a thousand backpacks for children in 10 RWC schools.
This year, we are continuing our partnership with Gunderson-Dettmer and local churches and organizations including Peninsula Covenant Church and Peninsula Community Center. Backpacks with supplies can be brought to our location (895 2nd Ave. Redwood City) or to barrels located at 3665 Farm Hill Blvd. Redwood City.

Students, families, volunteers, community partners, and donors all come together for a Thanksgiving meal to give thanks for all the good at Generations United. We can use all the help we can get from set-up and tear-down to donated food and drinks. Join us and/or make a contribution that makes an impact. We look forward to seeing you there!
