Recent Events

In celebration of the holidays Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) is partnering with local nonprofit organizations to launch a virtual ‘Season of Giving Gift Drive.’ Each week leading up to end of the year, Assemblymember Quirk will highlight a different organization and their ‘Gift Drive’ needs.

“There are even greater needs and demands for nonprofit organizations during the holidays. The ‘Season of Giving Gift Drive’ is how we can help make their load a little lighter by donating the things they need most” said Assemblymember Quirk. To kick off the gift drive Assemblymember Quirk donated to Spectrum Community Service Inc.’s Meals on Wheels program and posted his donation on Facebook and Twitter with the #SeasonofGiving, and encouraged others to do the same.  

In advance of Assemblymember Quirk’s social media posts he is encouraging ‘Gift Drive’ donations to the following: Family Emergency Shelter Coalition (FESCO) is in need of clipper cards and gift certificates. The Alameda County Food Bank is seeking canned food items. The Hayward Animal Shelter is in need of cat litter and pet supplies. Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE) is in need of new sets of twin sheets. Ruby’s Place would like unused bath towel donations and the Fremont Resource Center (FRC) is hosting an 'adopt a family' program.

“I want to thank the tireless work of these organizations and I hope you can join me in showing our appreciation. If you can donate, please do so and raise awareness by using the #SeasonofGiving. Together we can help the nonprofits in our community make this a true season of giving,” stated Assemblymember Quirk. To stay informed and learn more, follow @AsmBillQuirk on Facebook and Twitter.

Every year I partner with the Oakland Zoo and the Alameda County Community Food Bank to raise awareness about hunger and give back to those in need. According to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, one in six Alameda County residents rely on the donations provided at the food bank.

You can help end hunger in Alameda County by donating a can of tuna, a jar of peanut butter or other non-perishable food items at the 10th Annual Jingle Tails event. The Alameda County Food Bank will be collecting food donations at the main entrance of the zoo. As part of this event families receive free admission to the zoo and get to enjoy the festively decorated Zoolights.
