GoGrid Gives Back Through Its Season of Giving Program

January 12th, 2012 by - 2,742 views

Here at GoGrid, we believe in giving back to our local community. That’s why for the last 5 years, we’ve been hosting GoGrid’s Season of Giving, partnering with local organizations, such as the San Francisco Food Bank and Family Giving Tree, to host an annual food and toy drive.

Every year, we ask our employees to donate one bin full of food. To make this drive more successful and fun, we hosted a competition (thanks to our VP of Marketing for the great idea!) – the winning team got bragging rights and an ice cream social hosted by San Francisco’s own, Frozen Kuhsterd. GoGrid and its employees donated over 685 lbs of food!


Because the teams worked so hard, we felt that it was only appropriate for everyone to be rewarded with ice cream. Thanks to Frozen Kuhsterd for bringing in the Cereal Milk and Blue Bottle Coffee flavors to reward our employees for a job well done!

The toy drive for the Family Giving Tree wasn’t any different.

As you can see, we were able to fill up a bin full of toys, clothes, and other requests from local low-income and homeless children. It’s a satisfying feeling when you know you’re helping out those in need!

We look forward to expanding our efforts in giving back to our community in 2012. Stay tuned for further developments in this area!
