We support…

We at TEDxBayArea support those who are in need. Please consider bringing the following items on 12/7 to help local charities (we will have bins):

Please join us in assisting the Second Harvest Food Bank this holiday season. The Food Bank accepts all non-perishable food donations, but especially needs these nutritious items:

  • Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup)
  • Tuna and canned meat
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned foods with pop-top lids
  • Low-sugar cereals
  • 100% fruit juices in single serving boxes
  • Canned fruit packed in juice
  • Canned vegetables (low salt)
  • Please avoid donating items packaged in glass.

Second Harvest provides food efficiently through our innovative direct-service programs and by collaborating with a network of more than 330 partner non-profit agencies operating at 770 different food distribution sites. Partner agencies include shelters, pantries, soup kitchens, children’s programs, senior meal sites, and residential programs.


NEEDED: 3,000 gently used/new preschool books!
Picture books are perfect.

They need to be appropriate for preschoolers.
Through 10 Books A Home, volunteers go into needy homes in East Palo Alto, and teach children AND THEIR PARENTS how to read, so that they are both READY FOR KINDERGARTEN.
