GoGrid Gives Back: 6th Annual Season of Giving

December 17th, 2012 by - 2,499 views

GoGrid has partnered again with the Family Giving Tree and the San Francisco Food Bank to give back to our community and share much-needed items throughout the holiday season.


Since 1990, Family Giving Tree has been fulfilling the holiday wishes of children in low-income neighborhoods. The Family Giving Tree works with local social service agencies that interview the families and then send their specific wishes to “Elves” who distribute them to host companies like GoGrid throughout the Bay Area. Our employees fulfill one or more of these wishes by providing toys, gift cards, and happy memories to kids in need. GoGrid’s goal every year is to provide at least 25–35 gifts during the holiday season, with additional gifts donated through GoGrid’s Family Giving Tree website.

Together with the San Francisco Food Bank, GoGrid sponsored a holiday food drive to fill food pantries throughout Marin and San Francisco Counties. This year, we’re happy to report that GoGrid employees donated more than 620 pounds of soup, canned meat, peanut butter, and other non-perishables.


Resources: If you’d like to join us in the Season of Giving, you can make online donations via the Family Giving Tree’s website or the San Francisco Food Bank’s website through the end of 2012.
