What We Do

We are so happy you’re interested in getting involved with our work here at Hope Avenue. There are so many ways for you to help, and we truly appreciate each and every effort. By lending your support, you’ll become a valuable part of our Non-Profit Organization and help to strengthen our operations.

Over the summer of 2020, GIFT has made efforts to help the community, even through the Coronavirus Pandemic. Despite the quarantine, we gathered supplies for the homeless, clothing, and supplies for US Military Troops, and supplied Senior Homes with the resources they need to thrive during this time.

GIFT FOOD DONATION DRIVES (BAY AREA)

If you are from the bay area, feel free to contact us if you would like to participate in the food donation drives. Your donations will go to homeless shelters in Oakland, Berkeley, Livermore and/or Emeryville. Each months donations will differ so be sure to email us if you would like to participate!

BEANIE GROUP 

Currently, the beanie group is local to the bay area. We work together as a community to donate hand made beanies to other groups, such as Blue Star Moms, Stanford NICU, military troops, and homeless shelters. Our effort has provided many with warmth and comfort during the past several winters. If you are not in the bay area but would like to participate in this effort, feel free to contact us! We will guide and provide you with all the necessary resources and materials.

MASKS

Despite the unexpected and harsh halt that the world has to come to due to COVID-19, our community got together to provide for the local hospitals and families. Starting from scratch, GIFT has worked with the community to donate more than 5000 masks to alleviate the inconvenience of a lack of resources in our local hospitals.

VIRTUAL HUGS

The community worked to together to make around 400 heartwarming, encouraging, and supportive cards for senior homes that were affected by the strict isolation during quarantine.
