Join us for the Immigrant House party night

immigranthousemoveI wanted to invite you to a Immigrant House Party Night at Morocco’s, 873 Castro Street, Tuesday, June 3rd, 6pm to 10pm in downtown Mountain View.

Morocco’s will donate 10% of all proceeds to the Los Altos Community Foundation Immigrant House Fund for restoring the Immigrant House.

Free entertainment with music by Guided Tour.

Hors d’oeuvres will be provided and a dinner menu will be available. (Dress casually.)

I hope you all can join us!

Historic Immigrant House, built before 1888, represents the courage and contributions of those who built Mountain View and who continue to enrich our community and economy. It is the sole remainder of the hundreds of tiny homes, which once dotted the fruit orchards filling this valley. First saved from demolition in 2012 and then moved to a temporary location at Mountain View’s Municipal Operations Center, its future home has been designated. It will sit on the beautiful, rustic property slated to become Mountain View’s newest park (771 N. Rengstorff Ave.)

Many thanks…

LACF Program provides emergency preparedness backpacks for seniors

CAFE founder Anabel Pelham is working with LACF, a local Eagle Scout, Los Altos Rotary and Los Altos and Los Altos Hills on this great project.

Eagle Scout Warren “Renny” Glasner, 17, teamed up last month with Los Altos Rotarian and Los Altos/Los Altos Hills Senior Commission Chairwoman Anabel Pelham to provide 100 backpacks containing a three-day supply of essential survival items for seniors in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency. The duo, along with a handful of local scouts and two city of Los Altos staff members, assembled and distributed the emergency kits to registered Los Altos and Los Altos Hills seniors April 5 in the Hillview Community Center Multipurpose Room. The group distributed 80 backpacks at the event and delivered 20 more to nonmobile seniors in the community.

The Rotary Club of Los Altos’ Partners for Elder Generations Committee, the Los Altos Community Foundation and Los Altos Legacies – a philanthropy group dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors – funded the prgram. Each emergency kit included a whistle, glow sticks, a rain poncho, a blanket and a booklet with guidelines to follow in the event of a disaster. A three-day supply of drinking-water pouches and two days’ worth of energy bars were also included.

LACF raises nearly 20K at SV Gives Event

Thank you 2Thanks to You and SV Gives!

LACF raised nearly $20,000 from 80 donors on May 6, through SV Gives. This amount does NOT include the matching dollars, so we’re hoping that final number will be even higher.

We’re still waiting for the SV Gives report to know how many matching dollars we’ll be receiving, so stay tuned for more good news. Thanks for your support of the Los Altos Community Foundation and all the programs that we serve. We couldn’t do it without you!
