Season’s Greetings from LAMV-CF’s E3 Youth Philanthropy program
There are two ways to make wishes come true this season for Kids in Custody and a vulnerable Mountain View family.
We have a “BHAG” — A Big Hairy Audacious Goal — to spread the word and see every item purchased by Sunday, December 19th at Midnight. Click and brighten someone’s life.
Kids in Custody – E3’s Holiday care project
Los Altos Mountain View Community Foundation’s E3 students filled 64 Treat bags and worked on homemade cards for 64 youth in Custody at Juvenile Hall and James Ranch.
Now, they need your help. We’ve created an Amazon List from the wish lists of youth in custody for sports and recreational equipment for the unit where they live. Items average from $20 and upward. Brighten their holiday and start their new year with healthy options for fitness and sports.
Adopted Mountain View Family
The Ambassadors Organization is hosting a Holiday Gift Basket Drive, which pairs low-income MVHS families with “Basket Leads” (volunteer families, organizations, clubs, etc.) that put together a “basket” of items requested by the family to spread the holiday spirit! E3 is putting together their very own holiday basket for Family #44 with requested items such as sweatshirts, gift cards, school supplies, and hygiene products.
If possible, please ask your friends and family to support E3, and MV Cares by donating to our Amazon Wishlist. It would be wonderful if all 16 items could be purchased and delivered before Friday, December 17, so they can be wrapped, assembled, and donated on Saturday, December 18.
**See how to pick Shipping address below**
Thank you so much for joining in, And please spread the word so we can make all these wishes come true.
— Warmly, Christy and the E3 student Wish List Team
(Astra, Liam, Julieth, Diana, & Avi — and Thank you to Astra for coordinating our Adopted Family!)
