Thank you for sharing your luck!

As 2018 draws to a close, the Lucky Duck Foundation would like to say THANK YOU for sharing your luck with the San Diego community. Because of your generosity, we were able to fund many dignity lifting projects with our collaborative partners, including:

  • Packing and distributing 700 Winter Care Kits to Bridge Shelter residents
  • Gifting warm blankets and $150 Target gift cards to 324 Alpha Project Bridge Shelter residents who lost their belongings after heavy rains overwhelmed the streets surrounding the shelter causing flooding
  • Providing sweat suits, socks, rain gear, hygiene kits (including feminine hygiene products), and food courtesy of Feeding San Diego to Alpha Project Bridge Shelter residents at the SDCCU emergency evacuation site
  • Donating a new van for Family Health Centers of San Diego homeless outreach programs
  • Donating a new van for the Alpha Project Wheels of Change Jobs Program
  • Loan to the Regional Task Force on the Homeless to expedite the update of the Homeless Database Software
  • Providing $322,000 in funding for Regional Task Force Rapid Rehousing & Employment Program
  • Donating $100,000 to Feeding San Diego (matched!)
  • Donating $100,000 to Helen Woodward Animal Center for their Pets Without Walls Program
  • Donating $10,000 to the Rock Church to support their homeless outreach efforts

As we work to raise awareness to reduce the stigma and alleviate the suffering of our homeless neighbors, we know that our successes would not be possible without you. The Lucky Duck Foundation wishes you a happy and healthy 2019 and we look forward to continuing to share our luck with the community.
