LIFT Benefit Concert

LIFT Benefit Concert

Saturday, May 11, 2024
3 to 5 pm

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

The concert helps us raise money to serve those in need of food in our downtown Oakland community! We partner with Alameda County Community Food Bank and others to source, store, and share food in the community. We spend an additional $6000 a year on food and food-related expenses.  We make available hygiene products for our un-housed neighbors at a cost of $3,500 a year. We truly run on a shoestring budget with countless hours of volunteer service!

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 – community members, families with young children, college students, local businesses, service clubs, and local high school students and more. See also our Food Programs page.
