Back to School Family BBQ
When funds are available, SOFESA organizes a Back to School Backpack and School Supplies Drive to help homeless and low income have the needed supplies to start school. Our partnership with BLU School Supplies and PCs for People enables us to get fully loaded backpacks for students and laptops at a fraction of the cost. Your monthly commitment to SOFESA helps fund this event. Help us today by signing up as a monthly donor.
Christmas of Hope Celebration
Our first Christmas party was held in a little community room for 13 homeless/low income children and their families in December of 2006. The Christmas of Hope Celebration is our biggest event for all of the homeless/low income children and their families that SOFESA helps. This event includes a full dinner with dessert, live entertainment, wrapped Christmas presents, a pair of new shoes, stuffed Christmas stockings, arts and crafts activities, Christmas Carol sing-a-long, and a visit from Santa Claus! This event is put on solely by private donations and volunteers. Please sponsor a child for this year's Christmas of Hope Celebration today.
Volunteer Wrapping Party
Each year, on the eve of our Annual Christmas of Hope Celebration, we invite the community to come and help SOFESA to wrap hundreds of presents, stuff stockings, cook and organize food, and decorate the event space for our homeless and low income children and their families. It is a wonderful event that gives those in our community who are interested an opportunity to give to the neediest of our area. Children are welcome! We ask that each guest bring one roll of wrapping paper as a donation. Snacks and drinks provided.
