Celebrate the world's biggest day of giving by supporting our efforts to provide care to homeless and housing insecure seniors in West Oakland. One story that recently inspired us was the kindness of our client Carolyn when she encountered another Senior in need. After receiving a check for her participation in the Peer Support Circle, Carolyn decided to use the money to help purchase pajamas, socks, and food for the other Senior.

Your donations enable St. Mary's Center to help seniors like Carolyn receive our support and services. This #GivingTuesday help us make the holiday season a little brighter for someone in need.
