A year-round program set up to exclusively help families with children enrolled in Castro Valley schools is currently taking applications from families seeking Thanksgiving Food Baskets or assistance through its Adopt a Family Program.
If your family needs help, or you know one who does, you are encouraged to contact the principal at your child's school or Ray Harris at 510-889-7743 (evenings only).
CV Outreach (also known as CVO) is an organization composed of Castro Valley parents and educational professionals who help local families who have children attending Castro Valley schools who are in crisis or suffering a temporary hardship. It is committed to maintaining the anonymity of the families it helps.
In the past the group has provided an array of assistance to families including food, clothing, furniture and help with medical and dental needs. You can read a Castro Valley Patch article written about the organization in the past which traces its history and mission here.
If you have questions, would like to make a donation to the organization or have time to volunteer contact Harris at the number above.
