The holiday season can be a particularly difficult time for those served by Edgewood. Many of our children find the holidays to be a sad and lonely time because of painful events that took place during their young lives, or because they have no family to celebrate with now.
Furthermore, many of our clients come from low-income families and communities where basic necessities are barely affordable and even the simplest of luxuries, such as a new pair of shoes, are out of the question.
Please consider sharing the warmth and happiness of the holiday season with some of the Bay Area’s neediest children and families. Click here for more information...
Here are some of the ways you can Get Involved:
Participate in the Edgewood Toy Drive
Our children come from families that are either absent or cannot afford to purchase gifts. Help make their holiday wishes come true by donating gift items to a specific youth. You can also donate gift cards or some of our most commonly requested items. Please remember our teen population, too, when you are purchasing gifts. Click here for more information...
Contribute to the Holiday Hope Fund
Cash donations will help support holiday festivities, but will also sustain holidays throughout the New Year, such as birthdays, cultural celebrations, and graduations. Click here to donate now...
Don’t Forget the Gift Cards
Gift cards allow our older youth to learn critical life skills of interacting in the community. Gift cards also allow our families to purchase basic necessities. You can also purchase Gift Cards along with other items through our Amazon.com Toy Drive wish list.

Donate Gift Wrapping Supplies
Your donations of wrapping paper, gift bags, gift tags, and scotch tape will help us ensure that each gift is individually wrapped and beautifully personalized, so our children can enjoy the surprise and thrill of receiving their gifts. Contact Edgewood San Francisco Campus or Edgewood San Mateo, to schedule a drop-off time.
Help us make this a festive and joyful time – in person! Consider volunteering with your corporate or community group to help with gift wrapping, holiday decorating, and event support. Please email Kristin Thomas, Corporate and Community Engagement Manager, at email@example.com for more information.
