Help students of North Richmond's Verde School while attending my Holiday Community Open House on December 7
You're invited to my  Open House Holiday Party on Thursday, December 7, from 5 pm to 7 pm, where you will have a chance to help Verde School. 

Let's celebrate another year of working together, with a festive atmosphere and light refreshments. 

You can also bring a check or cash donation to benefit the children of Verde Elementary School in North Richmond. 

For the past 19 years, we've sponsored  the Verde Elem entary Toy & Coat Drive. It's one of my favorite traditions.

This year, instead of toys, two books will be provided to each student courtesy of West County READS. And instead of coats, every student gets a new, warm hoodie with the school's colors and logo. Last year, you helped us provide students customized polo shirts (seen in the photo above). 

Thanks to great work by parents, educators and students, Verde is a shining light in North Richmond, which is one of the lowest income communities in the Bay Area. We are proud to support the success of these children, and we need your help again this year. 

We need to raise $7,500 to cover 375 custom school spirit hoodies. Your tax deductible cash or check donation will help us reach this goal. 
All donations must be received by Friday, December 8th.   

Checks should be made payable to the non-profit "CHDC of North Richmond" c/o 2017 Verde Hoodie Drive. 

You can bring your donations to our Holiday Party on December 7, or drop them off at my office at  11780 San Pablo Avenue, Suite D, El Cerrito, CA 94530  (Just north of Cutting Blvd). 

If you have questions, please contact Robert Rogers in my office (510-231-8688) or

A warm thanks in advance for your help and support!
