Who Receives a Gift?

We work with more than 300 social service agencies and schools around the Bay Area. Among the folks we work with are homeless shelters, community centers, rehabilitation houses, schools and various nonprofit organizations. Each year, these folks help us fulfill the needs of children in low-income neighborhoods. They supply us with the names and wishes of the children they serve year-round. These are kids who would go without anything during the holidays and back-to-school season


STEM Education

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are critical areas of study for children in order to be prepared for jobs in the "knowledge economy". Today, 50% of U.S. students score below the basic science level, while 80% of jobs created in the next decade will require math and science skills. Learn more...
