Gifts for Teens, featuring action events, helps 1350 homeless and low-income needy local teenagers. Everyone is invited to participate in two fun springtime events benefiting Gifts for Teens. On April 22, a $25 ticket buys a foodies’ delight, “A World of Tastes”, an international themed food and cultural lunch hosted by the History Club of Los Gatos. Call Theresa, 408 226 6365. The exciting news is that Gifts for Teens will give 1350 low-income teens a gift card for new shoes of their choice courtesy of a Sharks Foundation’s grant. Fun, full Gifts for Teens bags are distributed during the holidays through several Agencies and motivate impoverished teens to seek social services – housing, counseling, job training, and health care help.
On May 5, SVGives is holding an online, 24 hour, South Bay wide donation drive with the possibility of earning matching funds. Two AAUW San Jose Community Action Projects are participating: Gifts for Teens and Local Scholarship. Contribute at svgives.razoo.com/story/Gifts-For-Teens to buy bag contents for local disadvantaged teens. Or for local scholarships to provide funds to local women needing financial assistance to continue with college. http://svgives.razoo.com/story/Aauw-San-Jose-Local-Scholarship-Fund-1 Give from midnight to midnight on May 5 when local corporations may match your donation. If you miss the May 5 giving date, you can make online donations anytime.
