Proceeds from the Family Tree support Peninsula Family Service (PFS) and its vision to build a community where opportunity, financial stability, and well are secured for all. The Family Tree is a high-end resale boutique run by the volunteers of the Red-Car-Bel Auxiliary to PFS.


In 1968 members of the Red-Car-Bel Auxiliary (Redwood City, San Carlos, Belmont) brainstormed ideas for generating ongoing support for Peninsula Family Service. The result was The Family Tree, a volunteer-run, resale boutique in San Carlos. Thanks to regular donations of gently used clothing, accessories, and housewares, and the dedicated work of Red-Car-Bel volunteers, the boutique continues to provide sustainable support for Peninsula Family Service.
