The Gándara Center kicks-off its Third Annual Community Care Package Drive November 1 - November 30, 2021. 


Gándara Center's Community Care Package Drive aims to collect basic necessities, such as personal items including toiletries, personal care/hygiene products, socks and undergarments for those in need. The donations received will be distributed to some of the over 15,000 children, adults and families we serve across the state; including children in foster care, homeless youth & young adults, individuals in recovery and families that are struggling.  


Many of the individuals we serve come to us with no more than the clothing on their backs or little belongings they have in a trash bag.  Even the smallest act of kindness can make a lasting impact!
