GGMG Holiday Drive: 273 of 300 Families Fed So Far - Donate $25 to Feed a Family of Four
Support GGMG's Holiday Drive for Homeless Prenatal Program Today and Help Provide Meals and Support for Homeless Mothers This Holiday Season
Help us reach our goal of feeding 300 families before our drive ends - only a few more days to go!
This Thanksgiving and holiday season, GGMG has once again partnered with San Francisco's Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) to help provide meals to families in need. With your donation of $25, HPP can provide a family of four with a warm Holiday meal including turkey and gravy, stuffing, vegetables and fruit. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated! Donations will be used to provide food to HPP families for Thanksgiving in their own home and at HPP's yearly celebration where they bring their community of families together to celebrate the holidays. GGMG's drive with HPP will last from the beginning of November through early December. Together we've raised $6,825 so far - that's enough to feed 273 families!! Let's make it 300 families! Please consider joining other GGMG moms in making this holiday season a little brighter for some of San Francisco's neediest families. There are several ways to donate, we hope you'll join us and contribute in one of the ways listed below:
1. Donate directly to HPP by visiting http://www.homelessprenatal.org/news/2013-holiday-drive. Click one of the links at the bottom of the page to donate today! On the donation page, be sure to select "GGMG Gives" in the drop down box next to "Please designate my gift to support" so that HPP can track which donations come through as a result of our drive.
2. Do your holiday shopping and contribute to HPP at the same time by shopping for toys at Invenio! Invenio will donate 10% of the proceeds from all sales through www.inveniotoys.com/hpp. Invenio provides a curated selection of developmentally appropriate children's toys from around the world.
3. Love to bake? Another way to contribute to HPP is to make baked goods. The HPP families appreciate the kindness of having treats made with love just for them. Please make enough of your favorite sweet treat (no nuts) to serve 12 people and package them in a ziplock bag if possible!
You have two options for drop-off:
Sunday, December 8 at GGMG member homes around the city. Locations to be provided.
Monday, December 9 at Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) at 18th Street and Portrero. HPP staff will provide runners so you do not need to park.

About Homeless Prenatal Program: HPP is an award-winning program in San Francisco that provides poor and homeless families the resources to end childhood poverty. More than 3,500 families access HPP's services each year. Over the past 23 years, HPP evolved from focusing solely on prenatal care for mothers into a Family Resource Center with a broader, more holistic mission -- breaking the cycle of childhood poverty. HPP offers services focused on housing, prenatal and parenting support, child development, family finances, access to technology, domestic violence, substance abuse, family unification and emergency support of basic needs.
Just last month, HPP honored GGMG with the "Act of Kindness" Award for all of the work that we do with them. Help us continue that relationship by donating today!
