Giveaway with Giants’ Wives

In July, a group of San Francisco Giants’ Wives and their families visited our Free Clothing Program to give out 50 Project Night Night gift bags and volunteer with our youngest guests.

Our giveaway was truly one for the books—the Giants’ Wives came with loving smiles, open arms, and a bounty of basic nighttime essentials.

“What stood out the most was the experience of receiving such thoughtful gifts from such influential people in our community. Our guests wanted to get their pictures taken with the Giants’ Wives, they wanted to talk with them, share photos of their family, and connect beyond the donations,” said Jenna Fiore, Free Clothing Program Assistant Manager.

The Giants’ Wives were overjoyed with the opportunity to help our community members in need and to provide them with items that they can put to good use.

Giant’s wife Amanda said, “I feel it’s important to give back to the community. We have been very blessed and it’s important to pay it forward. It’s a small thing, but I hope it puts a smile on the faces of the children.”

Our Free Clothing Program serves 150 children, women, and men per day, providing fresh, clean clothing at no cost. If you’d like to learn more about this program, watch a short clip or sign up for a volunteer shift!

Going big for Back to School

This year’s Back to School event has gone BIG—doubling the days of service and the number of children served. During our two day event, 400 children will receive a new backpack, set of clothes, and school supplies to get them ready for the first day of school. We will also be providing haircuts, writing activities, crafts, and a photo booth. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see live coverage the day of.

Huge thank you to our partners Dolby, Gap, Inc., Chronicle Books, and Warm Winters for supporting our youngest guests for this event.
