Giving Hope Holiday Program

Why Giving Hope? 

The goal of the City of Fremont Human Services Department’s Giving Hope appeal is to support the people we serve by bringing joy to them during the holiday season.  

Sponsors can shop for items from a personalized wish list for a family or a senior (and their pet companions) who need a little extra support to make the holidays special. Based on the requests of the family or senior, wish lists can include clothing, toys, personal need items, groceries, gift cards, travel vouchers, and more. We ask sponsors to spend a minimum of $100 per person on the lists.

Are you ready to shop? 

To sponsor a wish list for a family, email Jane O’Hollaren.

To sponsor a wish list for a senior or a senior with a pet, email Monica Dominguez

Not a shopper but still want to help? 

You can click here to make a financial contribution through our secure website or you can mail a check made payable to the City of Fremont to Giving Hope, Human Services Department, City of Fremont, 3300 Capitol Ave, Bldg B, Fremont, CA 94538. 

Financial contributions will be used to buy gifts for wish lists that don’t have sponsors. After the holidays, money we haven’t spent on gifts is applied to the Human Service Department’s urgent needs funds. These flexible funds allow us to help with the various critical needs that our clients may be facing, which may not be covered under governmental program guidelines.
