2019 Fall Giving
Last year was busy for more than 500 corporate and community partner volunteers who supported various drives for our participants across all of our programs.
Thank you to: Goodwin, the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation, NetSpend Community Connect, Populus Group, SnapLogic, Upstart, and YMediaLabs for granting so many holiday wishes. These wonderful partners bought and assembled sixty thanksgiving food baskets, purchased coats, donated holiday gifts, built children’s bicycles, donated gift cards, and made many wishes come true.
We appreciate Mom’s Against Poverty (MAP) volunteers, the Leadership Program, National Charity League (nCl), and the Young Men’s Service League (YMSL), among other groups, for donating puzzles, bubbles, tricycles, medical kits, gifts, blankets, and supplies for our classrooms!
Our Volunteers Thrive During COVID-19
National Charity League (Crystal Springs Chapter) volunteers have written thoughtful note cards and assembled care packages for our aging program participants. Many more cards have been written and mailed every week by new volunteers.
The Hillsborough Auxiliary and other volunteers hand-sewed face masks for our teachers and students as they go back into the classroom, and a Senior Peer Counselor made masks for Older Adult Services participants.
The Foothill Auxiliary donated school kits for children. Parents at Midway Child Development Center donated toilet paper to families in need. San Mateo County Health Foundation donated over 2,000 pounds of chocolate to our participants. Cuvee Cellars donated chocolates and hand sanitizer. NetSpend donated gift cards for financial empowerment participants.
Thanks to our volunteers for the tremendous amount of help and time you have given to our community!
