On Saturday, December 17, 2016, Shores of Hope will open their doors to the families in need and distribute bags of groceries thanks to a partnership with the Raley’s Food for Families program.

Food For Families is a non-profit program that has raised more than $22 million and donated more than 12 million pounds of groceries to food banks in our communities since the program began as a holiday food drive in 1986. Shores of Hope shares the view of Raley’s Food for Families whose aim is to end hunger locally by providing fresh and healthy food to those who need it the most and getting real food to real families.

“The holidays can be tough on any family regardless of their need,” shares Shores of Hope's Christopher Terrazas. “With the gracious donation of groceries through a partnership with Raleys, we were able to spread some hope by providing nutritious food for the body and soul of our families.”

Shores of Hope has been rebuilding the lives of those in need throughout the Sacramento Region since it began in 1920 as the United Christian Center and as the former Broderick Christian Center since 1952. The name change to Shores of Hope in October 2015 marks the growth of the center from a formal religious ministry to an organization that continues to offer service and hope to those mired in social crisis.
