The San Diego Coalition for the Homeless is a 501(c)(3) non profit charitable organization that has provided hope and help to the homeless and impoverished families and children in our community since 1979. Our annual Christmas time party is what distinquishes us from other social service agencies. This year we are anxiously preparing for the 41th Annual "Holiday Magic for Kids" holiday party which will be held on December 12 , 2020, at the Golden Hall, Community Concourse, 202 C Street, San Diego. Doors open at noon.

Poverty is sad for all families, but the saddest victims are the children. They don't understand why they have so little. Our gift to them is a few hours apart from their existence where they can enjoy the holidays like other kids. Last year over 500 low-income and homeless families received boxes of food. Every child, new born to 12 years of age received wrapped toys, stocking stuffers, and a lot of memories. Golden Hall resounded with music and laughter as our mascots, musicians and mimes entertained the crowd.

The festivities started off with the Buffalo Soldiers presenting the colors in a tradition flag ceremony. Members of the ROTC and local area young pageant contestants and winners were on hand to help make sure everyone was having a great time. Year after year, these young people volunteer and play a huge role in our success. Thank you ladies and gentlemen. We are always looking for volunteers to help prepare for the event by doing children's book drives or collecting food items needed to give needy families and children. Volunteers needed at Golden Hall the evening before and the morning of the event. Please help by submitting packet.
