I just got this e-mail from Tim Holmes, the owner of Zocalo Coffeehouse. Zocalo is matching the donations made to the Davis Street Family Resource Center, a San Leandro organization that provides goods and services to the poor.
Here is their press release:
Decorate our Tree for Davis Street

San Leandro, CA – December 14, 2009 – Zocalo Coffeehouse is holding an tree decorating fundraiser for the Davis Street Family Resource Center.
For nearly 40 years the Davis Street Family Resource Center has assisted tens of thousands of families in our community via health clinics, job search, childcare, clothing and food banks, and more.
The number of families in need turning to Davis Street has increased 5X in the past year alone and they are straining to support these needs. More than ever in it’s history Davis Street’s mission is critical to San Leandro.
Come down to Zocalo between now and the end of the year and donate an ornament to our tree and not only will 100% of the money go directly to Davis Street, but Zocalo will match up to $5000, for a combined possible total of $10,000, making your money go twice as far and helping Davis Street to serve even more in need.
Ornaments range from a $5 red heart to the $500 tree topper star! Donate $1000 (and remember, we’ll match your donation) and you can choose whatever you like for your tree topper!
A donation to Davis Street is the perfect gift to the community.
Zocalo Coffeehouse is an independent, locally-owned coffeehouse and roastery, located in San Leandro, California. The name, a Mexican-Spanish word meaning “town square” or “town center,” was chosen to reflect the goal of community building, focusing not only on the product, but on the place itself. It’s not just about coffee or tea, its about the community.
