Currently two Dublin churches contribute to a fund which provides food gift cards and/or a one-night stay at a hotel in Pleasanton.  A request can only be made once a year.

Those in need contact a church representative who provides them with an approval letter.  The letter is taken to the Dublin Police Department and presented to the sergeant on duty.

The department runs a criminal check before issuing a voucher or gift card.
