Sponsor A Family 2023

By November 7, 2023November 28th, 2023

‘TIS THE SEASON

Sponsor-A-Family 2023 brings Christmas cheer to our neighbors in Redwood City. Last year, we partnered with caring neighbors to bring holiday blessings to over 50 families. The day-to-day rising costs of living in Silicon Valley are evident to everyone here, and every little bit helps during this season. You can be a part of spreading the joy of this season to our community! In addition to shopping for gifts and making a financial contribution, you can also provide a homemade (or store-bought) holiday meal. There are many ways to partner with us as a volunteer or donor. Please review the options below and then click to complete the form. We will be in touch regarding scheduling and more details. We invite you to share with friends and invite others to join you! Use the hashtag #GUChristmas23 to spread the word!

Details for volunteer options are below. To make a donation, please visit the donation page AND fill out the form so we can keep track of the campaign and send updates!

Thank you to Sequoia Christian Church for partnering with us and hosting this year’s events!

“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
