GoGrid Gives Back: 6th Annual Season of Giving

Monday, December 17th, 2012 by

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.

GoGrid Gives Back Through Its Season of Giving Program

Thursday, January 12th, 2012 by

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.
