Random acts of Kindness teams

Join a team that wants to do just that - do a "random act of kindness" for someone in our community!  Get notified via email of a need and if you have the time and/or resources to "act", then go for it!  

Examples of "random acts" include donating a box of food to a single parent or senior, sending a note of encouragement to someone in the hospital, or collecting blankets for our homeless community.  We also share last-minute "shout-outs" when local non-profits are short on volunteers.  



We have opened up the Response to COVID-19 fund. These resources will be used to help our church manage the burden COVID-19 has placed on our staff, all of you who call Cornerstone home, as well as be able to come alongside our East Bay neighbors with timely help. Click on the button below to give. 

Give Today

Livermore Campus

Special Instructions:
Purchase a Gift Card
When completing your purchase, under "Gift Card Details", enter in the "To" box. 

We continue to care for our homeless population by providing everything from snacks to socks and underwear, to wipes and personal hygiene items, and everything in between. Please help supply these essential items that provide care and comfort for our unsheltered community.

Order Here - Supplies will be shipped directly to our volunteer who will manage distribution


Let’s provide a way for our homeless neighbors to stay connected to family and other important contacts. By providing solar chargers for their cell phones, we can help meet their physical needs (i.e. making doctor appointments) as well as their needs to fight loneliness and stay emotionally healthy and safe.  With so many programs still closed, many of our homeless neighbors are unable to charge their devices. 

You can help by purchasing one of the 280 solar chargers needed to help our homeless neighbors throughout the East Bay!
Order here  (This is less than $30 through Amazon.)
During check-out, when selecting a shipping address, please choose “Homeless Neighbors”.
