LIFT Benefit Concert

This is a free event. We ask that attendees consider a donation. Register your attendance and donate at Eventbrite

COVID-19 protocols: Masks and vaccines are required for this indoor

The concert helps us raise money to serve those in need of food in our downtown Oakland community! While the Alameda County Community Food Bank provides some food for free, federal budget cuts make it necessary for our church to purchase additional food at a cost of $5,500 a year. We also provide hygiene products for our un-housed neighbors at a cost of $2,500 a year. We truly run on a shoestring budget with countless hours of volunteer service!

Terrific Performances!

Six performers including Oakland Interfaith Community Choir, Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir and Destiny Muhammad Trio

Accomplishments Funded by LIFT

  • Lake Lunches serves our unhoused or under-resourced neighbors by delivering 20,000 lunches a year! Twice weekly we meet people where they live with a healthy lunch and hygiene products.

  • Our monthly food pantry serves 5,000 bags of groceries a year, supporting primarily our elderly neighbors on a fixed income.

  • Our programs provide volunteer opportunities for over 600 people a year – families with young children, college students, local businesses, service clubs, and local High School students (who enthusiastically make up the majority of our volunteers). See also our Food Programs page.
