Giving Hope Holiday Program

Give Hope by sponsoring or donating on behalf of seniors, children, and families in need

The  beneficiaries of the Giving Hope Holiday Program are families and seniors who receive counseling and/or care coordination services from the City of Fremont's Human Services Department.  Each year, our Department identifies client seniors, children, and families in need, and then makes available personalized wish lists of clothing, toys, furniture, equipment, groceries, gift cards, travel vouchers, and more.  Community members who are interested may sponsor families or seniors (and their companion pets), or may donate financially to the program.

Your Contributions are tax deductible to extent allowable by law.  (Tax ID #94-6027361)

To sponsor a family and/or senior, view the Stories and Wish Lists below, and follow instructions to be matched.

To donate financially, please contribute at

Thank you for your generosity, and Happy Holidays!  And please help spread the word by emailing your family, friends, and neighbors, and by posting on social media!
