Applications for Holiday Help for CV Families Being Accepted Now

Castro Valley Outreach is gathering names now for those wishing to apply for Thanksgiving Food Baskets and who need help through its Adopt-A-Family program


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.

Why don't irresponsible adults stop having kids? Kids don't ask to come into this world. I don't understand why it's society's problem to take care of these kids that irresponsilbe adults bring into this world. How many out of wedlock? STOP having kids! I'm tire of donating money year after year after year, and the problem continues to persist. If you're going to do it, Use birth control!
