Among teachers, staff, parents, and classes, both from Mountain View and San Francisco, GISSV donated 70 gifts to families in need.
Thank you to the whole school community for participating in The Family Giving Tree donation drive! These gifts will stay local and go to families from Santa Cruz to Sonoma, whose combined dual income is as low as $40,000 a year. Special thanks to the teachers who organized a drive with their classes, and the families who stepped in to take care of the last wishes!
Additionally, 12 high school students and two alumni (thank you for joining us, Rebecca and Marc!) volunteered at the warehouse and sorted the incoming gifts to go to the respective organizations. We unloaded full truckloads of gifts!
Altogether, The Family Giving Tree will be providing 80,000 gifts to children, adults, and seniors.
