SERVING THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN SINCE 1947

SPONSORSHIP

The Charles Reid Foundation has devoted its time and resources every year in the spirit of giving and serving the greater Richmond California community.

 

The Charles Reid Foundation could not have served thousands of children and families alone. Through partners like the Richmond PAL Community Center, there has been a space to host the Children's Christmas Party. Since 2008, the Richmond PAL Center has opened its doors at 2200 Macdonald Avenue, Richmond, CA 94804. Their dedication to the community and the event is joined by the generous contributions from the following organizations.

Chevron Richmond Refinery

Stifel

Armanino LLP - Consulting for ERP & MS Dynamics, Tax & Audit

World Central Kitchen

Richmond PAL Community Center

Donation & Volunteerism

The Charles Reid Foundation serves the youth in the greater Richmond California communities in several ways. In the recent past, we have adapted to more flexible ways of outreach. We have used our funds and resources to partner with other organizations during the holidays as well as supported student educational needs and summer and winter camps. 

 

Although CRF accepts sponsorships and monetary donations year-round, the CRF Annual Children's Christmas Party decisions are based on the best and safest way to support during the holiday season. For ways to partner, reach us at lewisfamily001@att.net.

 

Events and other forms of support are determined in the fall. Should an in-person event be chosen for the Annual Children's Christmas Party, we will start accepting in-kind donations at the beginning of the first week of November until the end of the first week in December. To donate, please review our suggested ways of giving below or contact us here.

WAYS OF GIFT GIVING & SERVICE

Every year in the spirit of giving CRF begins to collect items that can benefit infants to teens. Our party has elves and Santa ready to surprise children and families with gifts that bring smiles to young faces. We wouldn’t be able to do this without the help of individual and corporate donors. Your contributions are welcomed and drop-off in-kind donation locations will be posted the last week of October and are subject to change. Stay up-to-date by visiting our home page or our events page for any changes or additional information.
