Open Heart Kitchen is pleased to announce that Pleasanton Weekly has chosen Open Heart Kitchen as a recipient of the 2019 Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund. This year’s Holiday Fund will begin collecting donations beginning now into the early part of January 2020.  This year, Open Heart Kitchen is one of ten recipients.  The other nonprofit recipients include: Axis Community Health, CityServe of the Tri-Valley, Hope Hospice, Pleasanton Partners in Education, REACH, Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation, Sunflower Hill, ValleyCare Foundation and Valley Humane Society.

Again this year, Pleasanton Weekly is partnering with Silicon Valley Community Foundation to handle all contributions.  Both Pleasanton Weekly and Silicon Valley Community Foundation have committed to waiving the administrative expenses so every dollar will go directly to the ten nonprofit recipients.  The funds raised will be used toward purchasing food for Open Heart Kitchen’s three meal programs: hot meals, senior meals, and children’s weekend bag lunch program.
