Gifts for Garfield

This Christmas, Sanctuary is partnering with Garfield Community School to provide gifts and food for families in need right here in the Bay Area.

"Garfield Community School serves about 650 students from Kindergarten through 8th Grade, in North Fair Oaks. As a community school we aim to be the central hub of the community where people can go to get their basic needs met (food, clothing, counseling services, translation, housing assistance, etc.). We strive to help our students succeed socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Despite making a lot of great improvements in our school environment, we are still one of the lowest performing schools academically in the county. Our student population is about 95% Latino, 4% Pacific Islander, and 1% African American. Around 85% of our students are English Learners, and our school qualifies 100% under the federal free lunch program. Many of our students are first or second generation immigrants, and a lot of our students suffer under extreme poverty. At any one point we always have a few students who are homeless, and the vast majority live in cramped and run-down conditions. Our students and families have a lot of heart and hope, but the decks are stacked against them in many, many ways. We hope to be a place where real change can happen and futures are secured, but it's a long, hard journey. We are thankful for the support we've received over the years from our various partners, as it is a true community effort!"

We're asking concert attendees to bring canned goods that we'll be giving to local families in need through Garfield Community School. Consider joining us by bringing some food along with you and help make this Christmas extra special for some of our neighbors! If you have any questions, feel free to email Abby McHugh
