Christmas in July

Dear friends of the San Diego Coalition for the Homeless,


We want to start our Christmas in July fundraising with a bang after the Fourth of July. The Annual Holiday Magic for Kids party is to be held on Saturday, December 21, 2019, from 12:00 noon to 3:00pm in Golden Hall, 202 C Street, San Diego.


Thanks to you all the Donors, Volunteers, & Entertainment Golden Hall ROCKED on December 22, 2018!!!  Music played by the Donna Larsen & the messengers with guest singer Christi Gilardi. Also, performances by Youth in Action Mimes, Mr. & Mrs. Clause, (Bob Vitacco & Yvette Porter-Moore), Buffalo Soldiers, Classical Guitarist Carlos Velasco, Miss Poway Scholarship Pageant, and let us not forget our Master of Ceremonies Dan Griesgrabber. Each child receives a brand new wrapped gift. For most, it's the only holiday present they receive, in addition, the children are given stockings filled with goodies.


Last year over 500 families received boxes of food; over 2,000 people attended the party.

We anticipate even more this year; due to more families living below the poverty line and the increase of cost of living. We chose to start fundraising early to accommodate more impoverished families this year. Since our nonprofit organization exists entirely on financial and product donations, this year's appeal for help is that much more urgent.  This year 2019 we want to exceed that number, unfortunately, there is a need.


Please help us. Please send your checks to our administrative office, location:

Poverty is sad for all families but the saddest victims are the children. They don't understand why they have so little. Our gift to them is a few hours apart from their existence where they can enjoy the holidays like other kids.


Hope your having a wonderful summer!
