Our Listings for “That Little Bit Extra”

Here are some opportunities to help our Philanthropy Partners outside of our usual volunteer and donation outreach as well as other community organizations in need.  These opportunities are open to anyone, not just our members. The following local philanthropies and organizations need donations to help those impacted by COVID.

House of Hope

Our beloved local food pantry, House of Hope, has had a big setback with receiving food donations through CityTeam and the USDA food program which represents a loss of support of over $100,000 annually! House of Hope needs our help now more than ever; their shelves are empty. For those who can help, they are asking for non-perishable food and personal care items as well as gift card donations to GroceryOutlet. Click here for a list of items requested. Alternatively, if you would like to purchase and donate a gift card to GroceryOutlet, clickhere or you can buy one at a local GroceryOutlet store. Gift cards ordered online will be mailed to your home for you to deliver to House of Hope. The organization also needs used grocery bags and empty egg cartons. In addition, they are always grateful for donations of fresh fruits and vegetables from your garden to support their Garden to Pantry program. House of Hope accepts donations Monday-Thursday from 9-4 in the Calvary Church office and Saturdays from 9-12 at House of Hope.

Loaves and Fishes
In 1980, Loaves & Fishes began with one meal. It was a simple meal of bread and fish served to 11 adults and 15 children. Fast forward 40 years, and Loaves & Fishes now provides over 1 million meals each year to our hungry neighbors throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties in the Bay Area.

Sacred Heart

Our mission is to build a community free from poverty by creating hope, opportunity, and action. We provide essential services, work together to improve our lives, organize for justice, and inspire our community to love, serve, and share.

Second Harvest Food Bank
At Second Harvest, we believe hunger is unacceptable. We provide food to an average of 500,000 kids, families and seniors every month at drive-thru and walk-up sites across Santa Clara and San Mateo counties through our programs and an expansive network of over 300 nonprofit partners.

Sunday Friends

Sunday Friends empowers families to break the generational cycle of poverty by fostering positive development in children while educating and guiding parents to support their children's life success.
