Let’s Help Make the Season Brighter!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Holidays!! We’ve got a LOT going on this month.

Holiday Giving for Families

As with every year, we have chosen a few hard-working families who are struggling to make ends meet. Let’s gather our resources and give them all a very special reason to CELEBRATE the HOLIDAYS in 2021!   


This year we have chosen these four LOVELY families!

A large local family of seven, with kids ranging from 5 to 17. Their dad fell off a ladder a few months ago and is still recuperating, while his wife is working tirelessly to make ends meet. They are barely getting by, may need to move, and there is nothing left over for food or gifts for the holidays. This family is wonderful and we would love to help bring some holiday cheer during this stressful and challenging time.

A single dad, a gentle and humble man, who works day and night to pay rent and have enough food to eat for his two children, a young grandchild, and a niece. In addition to working as a handyman and painter, he is now studying for his contactors license to improve his ability to provide for his family. He is always upbeat and smiling, and operates out of a deep love for his family and for always doing what is right. Let’s make him smile even bigger by providing a Christmas dinner and some gifts for his family.


We have connected with two moms living in a nearby shelter for abused women. One mom is living there with her 1-year-old baby boy, trying to stay safe and figure out her next steps. Along with everyday life, there are expenses for the baby, including diapers and basic hygiene needs. The other mom has found a safe place to be for awhile. She is staying in the shelter with her 14-year-old daughter, hoping for a fresh start.

Holiday Giving for Kids

Once again, we are partnering with California Homemaker’s Association (CHA) to provide toys for children from homes where families are struggling and food insecure. We will collect donations of toys and funds, match them with the names on the list, and be sure that every child has at least one wrapped gift to open on Christmas morning. This is a wonderful project, and if anyone wants to help out with the shopping, wrapping, or delivery, please let us know!


Thank you for being there to support these wonderful people. We are SO grateful you are part of Dream of a Better World and our lives!

Go Dream Team!

With special thanks to Max, Kate, Pat, Tracy, Karen, Nicole & all of the Food and Gift Delivery Elves!
