City of Half Moon Bay donates container
City of Half Moon Bay
In Mid-May, Coastside Hope gratefully accepted delivery of a refurbished 40' High-Cube shipping container. The container was funded by the City of Half Moon Bay to improve emergency preparedness on the Coast.
Located in the City Yards, the container holds durable foods such as canned salmon, dried fruit, pasta, and rice. In the event of a major disaster, having food and water stockpiled in the city will be of vital importance to relief efforts. Thank you City of Half Moon Bay for your forward-thinking actions!
Annual Backpack Giveaway
The annual Backpack Giveaway program was a huge success this year, giving away more than 500 backpacks loaded with school supplies! 
Donated Backpacks
The collaboritive program is entirely funded through community donations like these beautiful backpacks!

You can help next year through any of the partner organizations: Holy Family Trinity Church, Kelly Avenue Catholic Worker House, Community United Methodist Church, and of course Coastside Hope!

Coastside Hope's mission is to offer basic life necessities with dignity and hope to all mid-Coast residents. We could not help our neighbors in need without good neighbors like you.

Thank You.

Wishing you and yours well,
Keith Terry
