EOBA/EBCOM 2019 Holiday Dinner Drive

Updated: Oct 11

Dear Friends, Family, Neighbors and Community,

For over the past decade EOBA has hosted a monthly food distribution (held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month) that provides youth, families, and the community with groceries as a means to help those who face food insecurities. Every month we are fortunate to reach over 300 families who come to our facility and receive can goods, fresh produce, meats and more. The impact of our food drives has inspired us to challenge ourselves to expand the scale of supporting those in need by providing 1,000 families with complete holiday meals this year.

To accomplish this goal, EOBA is partnering with the East Bay Circle of Men (Please learn more about EBCOM by checking out their website at http://eastbaycircleofmen.org.)

how to help

We are fortunate to have an opportunity to help others in our community, and we are asking for your support to make this goal a reality. We hope that your generous contributions will make it possible for 1,000 Oakland families, many who often go without nourishing meals, to celebrate this season with a holiday dinner with all the trimmings!

  • $25 will provide a complete Holiday dinner for an entire family

  • $75 supports three families

  • $150 will bring your powerful love to six families in need

  • $300 provides twelve families with a special holiday dinner

  • $500 helps us support twenty families with holiday meals

  • $1,000 allows us to bring smiles to forty families this holiday

100% of all funds raised will be used for the procurement of food and distribution of holiday dinners. Please make your tax-deductible donation payable to “EOBA or East Oakland Boxing Association.”
