Holiday Fund extends a helping hand

The Los Altos Town Crier Holiday Fund is in full swing, kicking off its 19th year supporting local organizations that directly serve those with the most pressing needs in the community.

Holiday Fund

Since its inception, the Holiday Fund has raised more than $3.2 million. This year, the fund aims to raise $250,000 to donate to 20 nonprofit organizations.

Holiday Fund recipients include: the Bay Area Furniture Bank; Bayshore Christian Ministries; Child Advocates of Silicon Valley; the Community Health Awareness Council; Community Services Agency’s Food & Nutrition Center; the Community School of Music and Arts’ Artistic Intelligence program; Downtown College Prep – Alum Rock; the East Palo Alto Kids Foundation; Help One Child; Hidden Villa Summer Camps; Jeremiah’s Promise; House of Grace; the MERIT program at the Krause Center for Innovation; Music for Minors; Mentor Tutor Connection; Reach Potential Movement; Sky’s the Limit Fund; Sunday Friends; the Veterans Resource Center at Foothill College; and WomenSV.

Holiday Fund contributions are tax deductible and processed through a donor-advised fund at Los Altos Community Foundation. The foundation provides letters acknowledging contributions.

The Town Crier will present checks to the 20 organizations in early 2020. The paper is providing updates on each organization in a series of articles published throughout the holiday season. Click on the above hyperlinks for the nonprofits featured thus far.
