December 2017 Update 

Christmas Basket Distribution

 

The annual 51st annual Christmas Basket Distribution was held Saturday December 9, 2017 and was again a big success. This year we prepared for 120 Christmas Basket distributions for our registered clients and for several other charities. 51 clients were served on Saturday and were also given a frozen turkey or two frozen chickens. They also received a $10.00 gift certificate and a bag from Raley’s with coupons for potatoes, carrots, bananas and milk. 3 additional baskets were picked up during the following week. Baskets were also given to families identified by members of the JKPC congregation and to the Dublin Unified School District, St. Raymond Catholic Church and City Serve of the Tri Valley.

 

This event does not happen without the help of numerous volunteers working at various times throughout the week. It begins with a food drive early in December. A large food order is delivered from Raley’s on Monday. The food is sorted onto tables in Fellowship Hall on Wednesday. On Thursday the food is put into two sets of apple boxes and on Saturday families come to pick it up from 8:30am until 11:30am.

 

This year twenty six members of the JKPC congregation spent time at several of the work functions as did volunteers from the Dublin/San Ramon Women’s Club, Boy Scout Troops 930 and 904 and Girl Scouts from Troops 32806, 32286 and 33122.

 

Thanks again to everyone who made this event so successful.

 

 

 

 

Children's Emergency Food Bank
                Providing Food for those in Need All Year....

 

The Children’s Emergency Food Bank is a local non-profit organization serving Danville, Dublin, Pleasanton and San Ramon. The Food Bank provides food for families in emergency situations, rather than ongoing support. As we have no paid staff, almost all of our resources go to the purchase and distribution of food. Our expenses consist of an answering service, telephone service, postage and minimal miscellaneous expenses.

The Food Bank is an all-volunteer organization that operates on JKPC property. Our objective is to furnish canned and packaged food plus certificates from local markets to obtain fresh foods. We try to give each family, based on their need and family size, enough food for a week. We also have a Christmas giveaway which includes turkeys and hams donated by Raleys. 

Appointments are made with volunteers, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., who then meet with the recipients at our Food Storage Building. To make an appointment, please call the Food Bank answering service at (925) 828-5363.

Donations of non-perishable food and money to purchase food, as needed, are always welcome. We are a part of Raley’s Food for Families Program and receive continued support from them. We receive no assistance from Alameda or Contra Costa Food Banks. If you have any questions, need help or would like to help out, please call our answering service at (925) 828-5363 or write us at Children’s Emergency Food Bank, 7421 Amarillo Road, Dublin, CA  94568.
