Greetings Bay Area Community:

Many of the youth whom we serve experience their first magical holiday season here at MISSSEY. The magic happens through home cooked meals, holiday decorations, crafting, baking, gift-giving, and lots and lots of warmth and love. We are both requesting your assistance and providing you with a great opportunity to contribute during the holiday season. For many of the girls we serve, these are the only gifts they receive during the holidays.

Q: How can I help and contribute this year?

A: By sponsoring a MISSSEY youth for the holiday season! We would also appreciate the following:

a) In kind donations that will alleviate our costs for gift wrapping supplies. Each year, we receive tons of gifts generously donated by supporters. These gifts must be wrapped before they are delivered to participants. Our capacity to purchase supplies has been outpaced by the increasing influx of gifts we receive every year. We are in need of 100 gift bags (of varying sizes), 100 rolls of wrapping paper, 1000 sheets of gift tissue paper, and 20 rolls of Scotch tape.

b) Monetary donations to our annual holiday party, a festive occasion we put on to celebrate the holidays with our participants. You can write a check to MISSSEY, Inc. and mail to 424 Jefferson Street, Oakland, CA 94607, or make a donation online at our website: Make sure to write “Holiday Party Donation” as the memo.

c) General goodies to be distributed to all participants who attend our holiday party (e.g., chocolates, candy, one size fits most items such as scarves and gloves, socks, gift cards, etc.)

Q: What does sponsoring a MISSSEY youth for the holiday season involve?

A: You receive the holiday wish list of a young person. You choose a minimum of five gifts from her list to purchase and bring to MISSSEY unwrapped by December 12th.
If you are interested in sponsoring a MISSSEY youth for the holidays, please send an email to, or call our office at (510) 251-2070. In advance, we appreciate your support and love, as do our youth!

Since 2007, MISSSEY (Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting and Serving Sexually Exploited Youth), Inc. has devoted its energy to the heartbreaking epidemic of child sex trafficking by supporting and advocating for youth who have been commercially sexually exploited. We are a survivor-informed organization confronting this issue in Oakland, in Alameda County, and throughout California.
