According to a press release issued today, Zocalo Coffeehouse is holding a tree decorating fundraiser for Davis Street Family Resource Center. For donations starting at $5 and ranging up to $500 for the tree topper, you can decorate the very large tree occupying the center of Zocalo. All of the donations benefit Davis Street and Zocalo will match donations up to $5,000, for a total of $10,000 to Davis Street.
According to the press release, "For nearly 40 years the Davis Street Family Resource Center has assisted tens of thousands of families in our community via health clinics, job search, childcare, clothing and food banks, and more. The number of families in need turning to Davis Street has increased 5X in the past year alone and they are straining to support these needs." In late October 2009 through November, Davis Street, together with the San Leandro Unified School District, distributed H1N1 flu vaccine donated by Energy Recovery to San Leandro children and families.
The fundraiser starts today and will continue through the end of the year. Zocalo Coffeehouse is located at 645 Bancroft Avenue in San Leandro. Davis Street is located at 3081 Teagarden Street in San Leandro.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at December 14, 2009 10:57 PM | TrackBack
