First Addison Gives Event

We’re launching our first ADDISON GIVES event of the 2022-2023 school year. 

During the last week of October, Addison families can participate in a downtown community project—making potluck dinners for guests at Hotel de Zink, a program sponsored by LifeMoves and the Palo Alto Opportunity Center. Hotel de Zink provides emergency shelter and food to those in dire need. 

Between October 24th and 30th, those who want to participate can make or purchase a dinner entree, side dish or dessert to feed 15 people. Dishes can then be dropped off at a central downtown location and, if they wish, kids and their parents stay to help serve. If your family is interested in participating in this ADDISON GIVES event, please sign up HERE.

ADDISON GIVES is a program that was started two years ago. It is about teaching children social responsibility and the value of contributing to our community and learning by doing. In 2021, the ADDISON GIVES / Hotel de Zink project was so popular, we inspired the families at Walter Hayes to join us in this effort. 

Any support you can give would be hugely appreciated.
