WHAT’S A GRAND OPENING?
A Grand Opening is when the Allgire Foundation gets to provide residents of affordable communities with some of the basics that are so easily taken for granted. We want residents moving into affordable communities to have everything they need to succeed, such as pots and pans, dishes, silverware, trash cans, cleaning supplies, hygiene items, and so much more.
Amanecer Grand Opening
In December 2022, the Allgire Foundation had the incredible honor of again partnering with Community Housing Works to provide move-in kits and care packages of food to residents of the recently opened 91-unit affordable housing community in Linda Vista, San Diego. Amanacer was designed by Studio E Architects, who assembled all 96 move-in kits. The kits contained much-needed essentials, such as plates, glasses, silverware, kitchen towels, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, and other items to help make the apartments a home. Thanks CHW!
One Mississippi Grand Opening
In November 2022, the Allgire Foundation was excited and honored to partner with Trestle Build to provide move-in kits to the recently completed community of One Mississippi. Studio E Architects designed a beautiful 61-unit affordable housing community in the Uptown community of San Diego and helped assemble all the move-in kits! Along with the Trestle Team, we knocked on doors and welcomed new residents to the neighborhood. The move-in kits included kitchen, bath, and laundry items and care packages full of food. What an awesome experience!
Shelter Renovation Grand Opening
October 2022 - February 2023
SBCS Shelter Grand Opening
We made some special robust move-in kits for a shelter project for South Bay Community Services. This shelter is for victims of domestic violence who must move quickly out of their current situation into a new place. Many of these victims don’t have anything but some clothes. The move-in kits, or better titled “welcome kits” provide some of the essentials so they can feel at home. We also made robust food bags so they could cook easy meals and bring a semblance of normalcy to their uprooted lives.
Keeler Court Grand Opening
Keeler Court Affordable Apartments
In December 2021, the Allgire Foundation had the honor of partnering with Community Housing Works to provide move in kits to the just opened 71 unit Keeler Court Affordable Apartment project in the Southcrest neighborhood of San Diego. The Allgire Foundation provided plates, silverware, glasses and other kitchenware, bathroom, laundry, hygiene, and cleaning supplies, and care packages full of food and games. The entire AGC team loaded up trucks and passed out the kits and packages!
Ivy Senior Apartments Grand Opening
Ivy Senior Apartments
In November 2021, the Allgire Foundation had the incredible opportunity to outfit 52 formerly homeless seniors with food, games, supplies, and collapsible shopping carts at Ivy Senior Apartments in the Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego.

Trinity Place Grand Opening
The Allgire Foundation had the great fortune of partnering with Wakeland Housing and Development again in August 2021 to provide move in kits to 74 formerly unhoused seniors at Trinity Place in the Grantville area of San Diego. The Allgire Foundation provided rolling, collapsible, shopping carts, housewares, cleaning supplies, hygiene kits, and food and games to the residents. Being able to stock the cupboards with food made this grand opening extra special!
“This is so lovely! Thank you, thank you, thank you for such generosity to our residents."
Grove Grand Opening
In November 2020, the Allgire Foundation had the pleasure of providing portable, folding, rolling grocery carts full of move in supplies for the 81 senior residents at Wakeland Housing and Development’s Grove project in Vista. The rolling carts made life easier for the seniors as they stay active walking to local stores and shops.
Living Rooms at the Border Grand Opening
Living Rooms at The Border
In early 2020, the Allgire Foundation was fortunate enough to work with Casa Familiar on its first grand opening at the beautiful Living Rooms at the Border project in San Ysidro. The Allgire Foundation delivered cookware, kitchenware, bathroom and cleaning supplies, and hygiene kits to the new residents of the affordable housing project. Going door to door and delivering to the residents as the first grand opening for the Allgire Foundation made it extra special.
