We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Itís a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us with a donation to the Tri-Valley Haven and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity!

Wanted - Donations for our Holiday Program

Holiday Logo Livermore Downtown Association is now a gift drop-off point for Tri-Valley Haven's Holiday program! Thank you, Downtown Association! If you have toys, $10 Safeway coupons for turkeys, or other gifts you'd like to donate to our holiday program this year, you can bring them to the Livermore Downtown Association at 22 South L Street, Livermore CA 94550. Their phone number is (925) 373-1795 and they are open Tuesday - Friday from 10am - 5pm.

Each year, Tri-Valley Haven hosts our "Holiday Warehouse" program for hundreds families in need in the Tri-Valley area. Tri-Valley Haven believes that giving families the power to choose their own gifts and for parents to be actively involved in gift-giving to their children is an important builder for self-esteem during a trying time in a family's life. For this reason, we do not have families "adopted" for gifts during the holidays. Instead, we collect gift donations and invite our clients to come to our holiday program, select gifts for family and children, and be able to wrap and give them as gifts from their own hearts rather than gifts from a stranger. We invite you to help us to make the holidays that much brighter for the families and children we serve by donating toys and other gifts to our holiday warehouse program. This way, you give not only the gift you donate, but the even greater parental gift of self-esteem and the ability to choose what is best for their kids. If you would like to give to this really important seasonal program, please CLICK HERE FOR OUR HOLIDAY WISH LIST. Thank you, from all of us at Tri-Valley Haven. You are the ones who make the season bright.
