Lend A Hand Foundation will celebrate its 20th Year Anniversary of the Backpack Program started in 1999 in front of the Henry Robinson Multi-Service Center in Oakland. The program began with the giving of 200 backpacks. To date, we have provided over 85,000 backpacks and supplies all because of many supporters.
Join us as we celebrate 20 years of providing backpacks and supplies to impoverished youth and honoring those who made this milestone possible.
Thank you for your consideration and support. If you cannot join us, please consider making a donation of any amount.
Miranda Wilson will be our Mistress of Ceremony. You have probably heard her wonderful voice on Sunday mornings at KBLX 102.9. The Reed Fromer Trio will bring you songs from the old and new. Our Speaker will be John Sasaki, Communications Director of OUSD and former KTVU 2 Reporter/Anchor.
