Holiday Helping Hand 2022

Moms Against Poverty launched its Holiday Helping Hand project in 2009. Each year about 1500 toys, food, blankets, gift cards, and other necessities are donated to impoverished children in the Bay Area.

Our annual event enables the community to gather and wrap the toys that have been donated!

We invite you to join us for a day of gift wrapping for children and families in need. It will be a fun festive event with music, food, and a special appearance from Santa Claus!

If you aren’t able to attend but would like to support you can donate today or visit our Amazon Wish List Here.
