Changing Lives and Oakland Communities Through Household Items  

Organization: Create A Way Foundation
Lives Impacted: 25+
Donation: Bed Bath & Beyond


The Create A Way Foundation is a charitable organization located in Oakland, CA. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for Oakland residents. In partnership with civic and block associations, we seek to provide information on goods and services to local residents, who may not be aware of these available resources. Our foundation aims to bridge these gaps by facilitating community outreach efforts, and finding available resources for the enhancement and development of new programs.  

Our foundation provides programs and services in the Resident Services Center at City Towers Apartments in Oakland. These apartments are a low-income housing community where most of the residents receive some sort of government subsidy to help make ends meet. We provide the tools for community members to do their best and achieve their goals. We offer valuable information through outreach to assist individuals in overcoming obstacles to personal sustainability and partner with local churches to help those in need. Thanks to community partners like Bed Bath & Beyond, we are able to give back to those in our community with personal and household items. 

Thanks to these donations from Bed Bath & Beyond we were able to help families and couples looking for items and goods that they need. One of the families that needed household goods was so appreciative for the furniture and kitchen goods that they received from our drive. The mother was so emotional and she thanked us for helping her fill her home with love and new beginnings. Thank you Good360 and Bed Bath & Beyond for helping our community.
