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.

Food Distribution

We mobilize a team of dedicated volunteers weekly to deliver food to families in great need. The pandemic brought additional challenges to families already living in poverty with minimal resources. Our partnership with local food providers and generous donors allows us to meet real needs in these families lives.

Holiday Celebration & Sponsor-A-Family

The pandemic has made holiday gatherings a lot more complicated. Where we previously hosted 300 community members for a Thanksgiving meal, we are now pairing caring neighbors with families in Redwood City to provide a holiday meal with all the fixings. Additionally, we identify families in need in the community and provide an opportunity for their gifts wish list to be sponsored by loving and generous donors.
