Send some Holiday Cheer!
Will you send some holiday cheer to a person experiencing homelessness today? It’s easy:
Mail a holiday card with a general greeting of your choosing to 115-D Coral St. Santa Cruz, CA 95060 (no need to worry about filling in a name or anything but feel free to sign your own if you want; for your privacy we suggest you refrain from placing your last name or a return address on the envelope).
Homeless Services Center will ensure that as many as possible of the folks coming to check mail every day (and sometimes, sadly, not finding anything in their boxes for days and even months at a time) will receive a special Christmas greeting card this year!
Thank you for also inviting your friends, families, and co-workers to join us.
May your own holiday season sparkle with love, laughter and goodwill—and the untold joy and satisfaction of giving to others who are looking for a glimmer of hope this winter.
Financial donations to HSC provide shelter, supplies and resources to homeless families and individuals in Santa Cruz County. Your help is greatly needed and appreciated!

We want to assure you that we spend our donation dollars wisely. Our community-based board of directors meets monthly to review financial statements and an independent accountant audits our finances annually.
