BOMA Oakland East Bay has been partnering with the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and Shelter Inc. for over 25 years. Currently, the hospital and shelter can’t accept in-person toy donations due to COVID-19 visitor restrictions, but we can still help bring the holiday spirit to patients and families.

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital has created 2 wish lists for their 2 departments with the greatest need, Social Services and Child Life. These items you can pick, purchase and it will be sent directly to the hospital.

We also have also created a team for their Project Cheer Virtual Toy Drive. Funds raised through this campaign will allow the hospital staff to purchase toys for kids who are in the hospital for the holidays. We include patients and their siblings, so parents have one less worry in difficult times. It costs an average of $50 to provide presents for each family and your donations will go directly toward purchasing these gifts.

SHELTER, Inc. asks for our help to help us create a warm and memorable celebration for low-income families by adopting a family this holiday season. We have over 500 families that need your help. When you adopt a family, you’ll be helping low-income families in Contra Costa and Solano Counties.

There are individuals as well as small and large families in need, SHELTER is asking for 2 to 3 gifts per person from their Wishlist. Gifts should not exceed  $75 range and all gifts need to be wrapped and labeled clearly with family Last name and  ID provided when adopting a family. You will be required to sign up for a time to drop off gifts.

With the new virtual platform, member buildings can assist by sharing the wish list and fundraisers with your tenants and staff.

Together we can bring smiles to families who need it more than ever this year!
