(in lieu of Teen Baskets)
Holiday Fundraiser
Starting December 1st.
Thank you to everyone!
If you missed the 12/15 deadline, don't worry.
Your donation today will still be used to support the teens at the Building Futures homeless shelters!


For the past 20 years, we have had the pleasure of gathering contributions from our friends and retirees at UCOP to prepare 10 Bath and Body baskets annually, for the teens at Building Futures homeless shelters. Your generosity over the years has been outstanding!

This year, due to the pandemic, physical gift donations are not possible, so unfortunately we will not be able to provide our annual Teen Bath and Body baskets. However, the need for our support still remains, possibly more now than ever. Therefore, this year we would like to ask for your help to financially support these shelters. With your cash contribution, Building Futures will be able to purchase holiday gift cards, clothing, toys, and every day needs. They will also be able to fund other activities that support their clients, especially this holiday season.

Please contribute whatever you can, no amount is too small. If you prefer, you may donate by mailing a check to: Building Futures, Attn: Teen Baskets, 1840 Fairway Dr., San Leandro, CA 94577.

Thank you so much,
Karen and Jan
