This season's Fund, buoyed by a $50,000 matching grant from the Tri-Valley Community Foundation, hopes to top last year's $147,000 in donations to help charities in Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley and the thousands in need whom they serve.
Checks should be made out to Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund and left at the Pleasanton Weekly office at 5506 Sunol Blvd. Donors can also contribute online at the Tri-Valley Community Fund website (www.tvcfoundation.org); click on the "Give Now" button, and look for the Holiday Fund box. Enter the amount to be contributed and enter the credit card information.
This year's beneficiaries of the fund are Axis Community Health, Hope Hospice, Open Heart Kitchen, Valley Humane Society and the Ryan Comer Cancer Resource Center at ValleyCare Health System Foundation.
