Ecumenical Hunger Program seeks gifts for teens


With only days left in the Ecumenical Hunger Program’s holiday distribution of food and gifts, the organization is low on gifts for teens, according to Christina Tecson of the EHP staff.

"Every holiday season we encounter the same problem – our teens are overstressed, overworked and often overlooked by giving programs," she says. "The majority of these youth are at home in a caretaker role, looking after younger siblings, filling in for working parents who cannot afford childcare. They are children given adult responsibilities and they deserve happiness during the holidays.

"You can help by donating gifts, money or a gift cards and let the teen shop for themselves."

The Ecumenical Hunger Program is a non‐profit, community‐based organization based in East Palo Alto and in operation since 1975. The organization provides ongoing emergency services and special holiday distributions, and serves more than 3,000 kids and teens during the holidays.
