Make Christmas brighter this year with the

For 2022 the Blue Oaks Church Christmas Toy Drive is focusing on the 200+ “unhoused” children* and their families in the Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore public school districts. By becoming a Sponsor, you can help make this Christmas merry and bright for children in your neighborhood who often don’t know where their next meal or good night’s sleep will come from.

*The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal law created to support the enrollment and education of homeless students. McKinney-Vento is intended to provide homeless students the same educational opportunities as housed students by removing as many barriers to learning for homeless students as possible.

The McKinney-Vento Act defines “homeless children and youths” as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.” Lacking any one of these three conditions would make a child eligible. In other words, if the residence is not fixed, regular, and adequate, it is considered a homeless situation.

We are accepting financial donations which will be distributed equally among the families to help with basic needs. We would love to ease their burden some by providing gift cards for food, gas, clothing, or other essential items. Our desire is not only to serve the kids this year, but to serve and encourage the whole family. We want to extend the love of God in a tangible and practical way.
