How to Give. 

Giving Tree
Host a Lincoln Giving Tree. Tell us how many angels you would like, and we’ll provide you with names, ages, gender and 3 gift wishes for each child. Great for businesses, schools, clubs and civic groups!

Family Gift Baskets
Provide items to encourage parent/child interactions for Lincoln families.  Get creative! Decorate baskets filled with board games, books, DVDs (G and PG ratings only), snacks, activity kits (art & craft, baking, science etc.), movie tickets, gift cards, etc. You’ll receive ages of children, family interest, and gift ideas for each family.

Sponsor a Child
Fulfill a child’s holiday wish list of 3 items. Sponsor 1 or more children. This is a wonderful opportunity to involve your family and children in the season of giving!

Gift Card Drive
Short on time? Organize your co-workers, neighbors, or club to collect grocery, gas, and clothing store gift cards. Lincoln parents, teens and young adults often need support in meeting basic needs during the season and year round. Lincoln families love gift cards from Target, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Lucky, Michaels, DICKS Sporting Goods, Old Navy, I-Tunes, Fandango. Gift cards can be dropped off at our Oakland location, Monday- Friday from 9 AM- 5PM. Please contact Letitia Henderson, Community Engagement Manager at 510.273.4700 x 4325 or to schedule a time. Thank you!

How to Engage.

Host an Event
We’re looking or groups to host holiday events for our children and families in November and December. Provide food, activities and day of support for events at our Oakland and Hayward locations. Have a fun idea? 

Come out to Lincoln and assemble your family gift baskets onsite in our Oakland warehouse. Bring your items, baskets and decorating supplies. We’ll provide space, refreshments and a tour of our location. 

Sort Gifts
We need volunteers to help us match delivered gifts to children’s wishlist. A few dates available at our Oakland location throughout December. This is a great opportunity for parents to volunteer with their teens!

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of Lincoln children and families.
