Chip a coin, grant a wish

Submitted by on 1, December 22, 2009 – 6:00 amOne Comment

FountainLooking for a quick and easy way to grant some holiday wishes this season? The folks at Alameda Towne Centre have got just the thing for you. They’re raising money for the Alameda Homeless Network to benefit Midway Shelter. And all you have to do is chip some coins into their Frog Fountain at center court.

So to recap: Stop by Towne Centre, wander over to the Frog Fountain at center court and chip in some coins (and don’t forget to make a Christmas or New Year’s wish!) anytime between now and January 3. The money will be donated to the Alameda Homeless Network on behalf of Midway Shelter, which offers a safe, supportive environment to women and children who are fleeing domestic violence.

And if you want to donate more than a few coins, you can always donate to Midway Shelter directly, either by clicking the link above or by sending a check to Alameda Homeless Network, P.O. Box 951, Alameda, CA 94501.

    You can also come to Peets on Park Street on December 24th and they will donate all the money for the coffee purchased to Midway Shelter. Good for the shelter I am sure they need as much help as they can get this time of year. I will never forget the first time I dropped stuff off there. They check you out first to make sure it isn’t the abuser hunting a family, sobering thought.
