Letter of gratitude from the community we serve

Category : School Events

Hello amazing donors and volunteers. Today we received a special delivery. Our 5 year old was amazed that santa’s elves brought us a tree, so now it “really IS” Christmas with a tree and a feast and everything!  

We cannot tell you how blessed we are and how magical this has made Christmas for our daughter. Despite Daddy being hurt and Mommy working too much, it is still “Christmas” and the magic of Christmas is very much alive.

Please send our utmost thanks and gratitude to all the volunteers, donors, and amazing people that have made Christmas come to our house this year in such a magical way. God Bless you all and we pray that next year we will be able to return the love to another family.

2017 Adopt-A-Family Gift Drive

Category : School Events

Happy holidays! Jensen Ranch has, once again, teamed up with Castro Valley Outreach to adopt seven families in need. Each grade has an opportunity to make a local family’s holiday wishes come true. For a list of our adopted families’ wish list, see Signup Genius links below. We also shared information about our adopted families in the signups, given what was provided to us.

Kindergarten –

1st Grade –

2nd Grade –

3rd Grade –

4th Grade –

5th Grade –

How it Works:

  • Use the sign-up above to make someone’s wish come true.
  • Place your unwrapped gift by the Christmas tree in the library by December 19th.
  • Remember to tag your gift to identity your gift recipient. Include the family number, age and gender. Snowman gift tags are available by the Christmas tree, if needed.
  • Gift cards should be dropped off at the school office for safekeeping. Write the family number, age and gender on the envelop to identify your gift card’s recipient. Any monetary donations to be used for this gift drive should also be dropped off at the school office.
  • Santa’s elves will wrap gifts and sort gifts to prepare for pickup or delivery. If you are interested in wrapping gifts or delivering gifts, please contact Nina Wallkvist at 
  • Our adopted family will receive their gifts on Dec 22nd

If you have any questions regarding the gift drive, contact Nina Wallkvist at,

As always, thank you for your support!
