The Helping Hands program is a collaboration between The Associated Student Government (ASG) and the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) to assist our Saddleback students who may not have the resources to provide a holiday experience for their families. The program is confidential and provides an opportunity for members of our Saddleback College community to come together to lend a helping hand by providing gifts and food for participants. Our goal is to function as a bridge, bringing together donors and recipients alike, so that we might lift each other up, and support one another during a time of uncertainty and great difficulty.


How are recipients chosen?

The event is open to all students involved in the EOPS program at Saddleback College. Students submit applications, a statement of need, and their wish list for each of their dependents. We review applications and match donors with families to help get them requested items. 


Who can be a donor?

Anyone can be a donor. If you are a group or individual who has sufficient resources to assist others during the holidays, your help can make all the difference for a family.

How can I participate to be a donor?

It's simple! Fill out the form and we will be in touch to match you with a family. We will send you a little about the family you are helping, the wish-list items, and instructions


Don't have time to shop or can't make it to campus to drop off donations! We got you covered! You can also select to donate a gift card to allow us to shop for a family or provide assistance with food over the winter break for some of our families.


Sign up to participate by December 6. All gifts are due by December 10.
