Gaia Staff Volunteer Time for Students in Need
Posted August 19, 2010on:
Last week, some Gaia Staffers gave their time to the Family Giving Tree, a non-profit organization supporting children in need. Summer is quickly coming to an end and with that, school is on the agenda. Children of all ages need backpacks and supplies for school. The Family Giving Tree works with hundreds of volunteers, companies in the Bay Area, and individual contributors to collect necessities for a successful school year.
Ten Gaia Staffers showed up at the Family Giving Tree warehouse with filled backpacks in hand, ready to work for a great cause! We spent a few hours of the afternoon sorting backpacks by grade level and filling them with the much needed supplies: paper, folders, binders, pencils, pens, dictionaries, color crayons and markers, and much more. It’s a great feeling contributing to such an important program!
