Annual Charity Fundraiser & Open House Supporting Homeless Youth
StandUp For Kids | 25 East Hedding Street | San Jose, CA 95112
Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
StandUp For Kids - Silicon Valley will have their Annual Charity Fundraiser/Open House to raise money for our Outreach Center, The Village.
In honor of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, this special event is free this year and will be at The Village. We have a fun filled evening planned sharing our mission and stories (meet a youth from SUFK), provide a tour of the center, and raise funds to support our cause. There will be delicious appetizers and drinks. In addition, the chance to win some gift baskets/raffle prizes, and Sponsor a Youth for the winter.
You must have a ticket for the event as space is limited.
The Village, is currently open 5 times a week which was made possible by our dinner last year. It's a safe place for homeless kids (over 2500 in Santa Clara county living on the streets) to get a hot meal, access computers, take a hot shower, get a change of clothes, have their laundry done, and have caring adults to talk with. We provide 1:1 mentoring, educational programs to improve their life and Build For A Future.
We would like to be able to extend our reach to help more kids get off the streets (we see about 100 youth a week). By being exposed to a supportive environment and having access to crucial resources, the youth will be empowered to make changes in their own lives. Funds from this event will not only help us continue our work, but also increase and improve the services we offer to homeless youth.
If you cannot attend the event please feel free to make a donation as we will have Sponsor a Youth for the Winter ($150) which gets them a tent, sleeping bag, blanket, tarp, wind breaker and hand/feet warmers.
