Giving Our Youth A Second Chance

Nov 27, 2016 10:14AM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

The Juvenile Hall Auxiliary is a non-profit, volunteer organization giving youth in the Contra Costa County juvenile justice system a second chance. Since 1955 the Auxiliary’s support has enabled young people to finish high school, attend college or vocational certification programs, get workforce training, and successfully re-enter their communities as productive adults.  The Juvenile Hall Auxiliary runs a Christmas Closet holiday boutique within their regular thrift store. It is open Thursdays and Saturdays from 9am-1pm. Shop for bows, ribbons, holiday cards, stuffed animals, wreaths, toys, and much more for a price far below retail. The Christmas Closet operates with zero overhead and is run 100% by volunteers.  All revenue generated by the Christmas Closet goes back into serving at-risk and disadvantaged youth. Shop, donate or volunteer at 100 Glacier Dr., Martinez, CA 94553.
