East Bay Gives

East Bay Gives is a 24-hour online giving blitz supporting Bay Area nonprofits. We hope you’ll show support for our Hayward Team by donating.

On Thursday, May 4, 2017, East Bay Gives aims to mobilize Bay Area residents to give $5 million to support hundreds of nonprofits, and Downtown Streets Team is one of them.

Just last year, we launched a Team in Hayward, and since then we’ve had terrific success in rebuilding people’s lives. So far, 3 people have secured employment and our Team Members have collected and removed over 6,600 gallons of trash and debris from Hayward’s city streets. Wow!

To continue our work, we need support from the community. It takes everyone’s collaboration to end homelessness, and it begins in your town.

Your Gift Helps People Just Like Caleb

A refugee from Liberia, Caleb knows struggle and loss better than any of us ever should. Yet, he chooses to look forward with optimism and brighten the lives of the people around him. With assistance from Hayward Economic Development Division, we discovered job openings at Mission Foods. Thrilled by this opportunity, Caleb decided to apply — and guess what? He got the job and is now working as a Machine Operator!

As well as bringing pride and new purpose to his life, this new job will also allow Caleb to take care of himself and his ailing mother. He is filled with deep gratitude for all of those who supported him on this journey and wants to give a shout-out to the City of Hayward, Bad Business Model Bikes for providing him with new wheels so he can travel to work more easily. He also wants to thank his fellow Streets Team Members and Staff for their support and encouragement. We are so excited for Caleb’s success, he is a true inspiration to all who know him!

Give today to help end homelessness in Hayward.
