Dear Valued VESTIA Supporter,

Pause momentarily and consider the everyday challenges confronting the working poor in Contra Costa. For many individuals, the essentials such as food, clothing, and shelter are not guaranteed, so the simple pleasure of sharing holiday gifts feels like an elusive dream.

With the festive season drawing near, we've set an ambitious target: to raise $30,000 to assist the deserving residents of West, Central, and East Contra Costa County. With your unwavering support, we are confident in reaching this milestone.

I am sharing with you our 2022 Annual Report, which provides insights into your generosity's impact over the past year. Through your valuable contributions of time and funds, we've distributed backpacks to eager students, awarded scholarships to Foster Youth, supplied hygiene kits and blankets to people without housing, and delivered emergency food supplies to those in critical need.

Together, we've positively impacted over 7,600 vulnerable children and adults spanning all ages.

As a vital arm of the Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services Division, VESTIA has tirelessly advocated for the working poor since 1986. And as a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, every donation you make to VESTIA is tax-deductible.

Make a lasting impact by donating online at or by sending your contributions to VESTIA, 400 Ellinwood Way, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.

Your sustained support shines as a ray of hope for many. We extend our deepest gratitude.

With warm regards,
